NAR Green Designation at NO COST + 16 Hours CE credit

Posted by Kevin McElroy on Jun 29, 2023 8:30:00 AM

What a Deal! Free Education Credit and a NAR Green Designation
NAR Green Designation at NO COST + 16 Hours CE credit

This is a two-day class so be sure to attend on the first day to get 16 hours of CE Credit.

Gain a competitive advantage and learn how to become your client's go-to resource for
buying or selling a more efficient, money-saving, healthy home.

Register HereThis is a two-day, in-person Class at our PSAR East Location

July 18 - 19 Classes

Day 1     Day 2

Green Designation Training Flyer

Course Fee: WAIVED with the generous support from SDG&E

To earn the NAR Green Designation, you must attend both days of training.

Help Your Clients Buy or Sell a Green Home

  • Recent studies show that 94% of home buyers rate energy efficiency as an important part of their home-buying decision. Are you prepared to address their questions about green features and improvements?
  • Join us for a two-day training to learn green real estate concepts, principles, practices, and benefits in a way that makes sense to you and your clients. Stand out from the crowd by earning the only green designation for real estate agents conferred by the National Association of REALTORS®.

Expand Your Knowledge—And Your Client Base

Strengthen your knowledge of green real estate and help your clients:

  • Find and transform a fixer-upper into a more comfortable home with lower utility and maintenance costs
  • Make the right upgrades before selling to boost their home’s value
  • Navigate the cash rebates, incentives, green certifications, and green financing necessary to achieve their goals
  • You’ll also learn how to market green and grow your business to attract new customers.

Demand for Green Homes Is Growing

Green real estate is not a fad, but a fundamental change in the market. Nearly 40% of home buyers consider high-efficiency heating and cooling to be “very important,” and two-thirds of state governments have implemented green building policies. Furthermore, a 2012 study found that green-certified homes—with labels such as ENERGY STAR® or GreenPoint Rated—sold for up to 9% more than homes without a green label. 

People have different motivations for going green. Some want to reduce their impact on the environment; others want to save money, reduce waste or create a healthier home for their children. Our training will provide you with the education to support your clients’ green endeavors no matter their objective.

Earning NAR's Green Designation

Continuing Education Units approved by the Department of Real Estate

Upon completion of the two-day required courses and successfully passing each exam with 75%, you will receive 16 Continuing Education Units approved by the Department of Real Estate.


Must be a licensed Realtor in the State of California in order to receive DRE Credit for attending these courses

To earn the NAR Green Designation, you must attend both days of training.

Humble Designs
Humble Design
: Changing lives and communities by custom designing and fully furnishing home interiors for individuals, families, and veterans emerging from homelessness. We couldn’t do what we do without our incredible workforce of volunteers and donations. Join us, and be a part of what makes Humble so amazing.


Home Start
Your funds will help provide the security deposits, titrated rental assistance, bus transportation passes, gas cards, and grocery or department store gift cards expenses not covered by government funding to help the youth stay housed, make ends meet, travel to work or school, have fresh food, etc. Ultimately you will help them break free from the cycles of homelessness, abuse, poverty, and neglect.

For 50 years, Home Start staff have served on the front lines in the battle to protect vulnerable children from abuse by strengthening families and their communities. To effectively prevent and treat child abuse, they address conditions that put children in risky or abusive situations such as homelessness, hunger, poverty, unsafe neighborhoods, lack of safe/affordable housing, & unemployment. They also focus on individual self-sufficiency and emotional needs to break the cycle of families remaining in poverty or abusive situations.

In any given year, the families, youth, and children Home Start serves are on the brink of crisis or just recovering from extremely challenging circumstances. The added stressors caused by the impact of COVID-19, including the housing crisis, increased domestic violence, and inflation, has been particularly devastating for the low-income families in their care.
