NAR’s Green Designation Program

This designation comes as a result of the growing demand for REALTORS® to understand green concerns of clients and implement sustainable practices in their day-to-day business. NAR’s Green Designation involves two one-day courses focused on residential practice. Each day of the new courses has a specific theme, growing from awareness and understanding to application skills.

To obtain and use NAR’s Green Designation, two course requirements must be fulfilled:

1. NAR Green Day 1: The Resource-Efficient Home - Retrofits, Remodels, Renovations, and New Home Construction

2. NAR Green Day 2: Representing Buyers and Sellers of Resource-Efficient Home

This unique program provides vital training, support, and information to real estate professionals who are looking to advance their businesses and raise awareness in their community about the cost savings, health benefits, and overall value of homes with green features. NAR’s Green Designation does more than introduce REALTORS® to this important topic, it encourages dialogue amongst industry professionals about the positive change in housing toward smarter, healthier, more sustainable homes and neighborhoods.

NAR's Green Designation counts as credit toward earning the ABR® designation awarded by the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council (REBAC). A copy of the course completion certificates is required to receive credit towards your ABR® designation.
