NARI Chapters and members can find certified trainers at click here.

NARI members should fax (847) 298-9225 or e-mail ([email protected]) a copy of the company's certificate that it is a certified firm with the EPA. NARI will then list on its Find a Professional search that your company is a certified firm. NARI National continues to monitor the availability of trainers by state and will continue to provide this information to chapters.

Renovation Firm certification application is click here.

While NARI believes its members will abide by the laws and practice lead safe work practices to the letter, ill-informed, unscrupulous contractors will not and this will create unfair competition in the marketplace. The EPA is launching a broad-based consumer awareness campaign to ensure that the general public understands these requirements.
