Remodelers with at least five years of experience in the industry can apply for the Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR) educational designation. Courses in the CGR curriculum are designed to emphasize business and project management skills as the key to a successful remodeling operation.
More and more remodelers are discovering the advantages of CGR and the marketing advantages it brings as clients recognize the “CGR initials” as the mark of professionalism in their remodeling contractor. The CGR curriculum helps you run your business more efficiently by teaching job cost procedures, accounting principles and basic contract law. Other topics covered include design, estimating and scheduling – but depend on the results of the Professional Remodeler Experience Profile, which CGR candidates complete before assembling a curriculum.
