Warranty Certification

After the keys have been handed over and a homeowner moves into their new home, the relationship between builder and owner doesn’t stop. Warranty and customer service are a key part of maintaining a positive ongoing relationship with homeowners, no matter the size of company.

Warranty certifications take participants from construction and customer purchase to move-in day and beyond. This extensive understanding of the entire new homebuilding process will provide participants with the knowledge to interact with customers and colleagues in a proficient, effective and caring manner.
