The Lowe’s CGR Scholarship and the Lowe’s CAPS Scholarship help pay for the classes needed to earn the prestigious Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR) and Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) designations.

First, interested participants must apply for the scholarships, which are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline for both scholarship applications is Jan. 2, 2015.

CGR Scholarship recipients can take the Professional Remodeler Experience Profile (PREP) online for free until March 13, 2015. Results of the PREP guide individuals to the courses they need to complete to obtain the CGR.

If the PREP is taken prior to the 2015 NAHB International Builders Show® in Las Vegas, individuals can start taking Pre-Show courses at the show Jan. 17-20.

Courses include Business Management for Building Professionals, Project Management and Design/Build Solutions for Aging and Accessibility (CAPS II).

Customers seek remodelers with CGR and CAPS because these designees demonstrate passion for and commitment to being the best in the industry. And companies benefit too—as another indication of their professionalism, members with the CGR and CAPS report higher annual revenues than those without.

  1. It is great to see Lowe’s get behind the CGR and CAPS program. These two designations have been vital to our company but due to limited offerings, very few know about it and even fewer are able to obtain the designation. Thanks Lowe’s.
