Get NARI Certified

NARI of Greater Sacramento has always promoted continuing education for its members, mainly through the NARI certification program. To qualify for a certification, the individual must meet certain criteria in the areas of experience, background and knowledge. The certification process involves many hours of study, as well as completion of a full day of written and competency testing. Moreover, each year the person must complete additional continuing education requirements in order to renew his/her certification.
