Hear From Our Members:

"We use the Recognition Program as a core aspect of our onboarding process. It is especially helpful for people new to the industry all together, as it's a nice overview of plumbing for them. We love the helpful tools regarding terminology and critical questions to consider when selling that are in each manual."

"We feel our showroom staff is better prepared to engage with homeowners and building industry professionals because they understand the fundamentals. Our knowledge is deeper than the aesthetic level on selections and we can put our customers at ease by explaining how and why. This knowledge and confidence starts with completing the DPHA program.
