    REALTOR® Family Designations & Certifications

    The National Association of REALTORS® and its affiliated Institutes, Societies, and Councils provide a wide range of programs and services that assist members in increasing skills, proficiency, and knowledge. Designations and certifications acknowledging experience and expertise in various real estate sectors are awarded by NAR and each affiliated group upon completion of requirements.

    More information on NAR designations and certification is on the NAR website — click here.

    For most of the NAR designation classes scheduled throughout the country, go to training4re.com. If the type of class you are looking for is not on that national calendar, go to the specific Institutes, Societies, and Councils or Institute that oversees that designation or certification.
