Maintenance Requirements

To maintain your approved instructor status to teach CSP courses, you must do the following:

  1. Maintain your CSP status or actively hold an NAHB designation.
  2. Sign and return the NAHB Instructor Guidelines annually.
  3. Teach one class every three years. If you fail to teach the minimum number of classes to maintain your approved status, you may apply for an extension of your approved status.
  4. Maintain a 4.5 or greater participant evaluation rating on a 5-point scale. Evaluation scores are reviewed quarterly based on a rolling average over a three-year period for both individual courses and overall instructor rating. If you fail to meet the required evaluation scores, you will be referred to the respective oversight committee for review and may be subject to disciplinary actions, up to and including removal of your approved status. These actions may be taken on an individual course basis or as an overall action based upon the committee's recommendation after the committee has completed its review.
* If I am approved as an instructor, I pledge to meet all requirements to maintain my approved instructor status.
