What you get with your NRHA Membership: As a member of the NRHA you have unlimited access to a number of valuable training and information resources provided through the members-only portion of NRHA.org These include:
NRHA's Basic Training Series
NRHA's new Basic Training Course in Hardware Retailing and Basic Training Course in Building Materials Retailing are comprehensive product knowledge training programs that include coursework, testing, instant grading feedback and a complete progress report for each student enrolled from your business. You get a fully administered training program up and running with very little effort. And, best of all, you can train an unlimited number of students at no additional cost. These courses are designed to help both new and existing retail sales associates gain the confidence they need to be successful on the sales floor or out in the lumber yard.
