Many Frederick County Building Industry Association members are sporting letters behind their names denoting the designations they have earned. They are committed to being a better builder, remodelor or sales person, and have worked hard to improve their skills. Below is a list of the acronyms of the National Association of Home Builders’ designation courses, so the next time you see that a member is a CGB you will know they are a Certified Graduate Builder, and that they have gone the extra mile with continued education and experience in their fields to make them stand out.
