Lowe's, the world’s second-largest home improvement retailer, and the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) announced today a program to educate and train Lowe’s employees who specialize in interior kitchen and bath projects. Because of this membership and training program, Lowe’s employees who work in the kitchen cabinets, countertops and fashion plumbing departments and as interior project specialists will have the opportunity to earn NKBA certifications, distinguishing themselves as industry authorities and enhancing their skills to turn customer inspiration into reality.

Eligible Lowe’s employees will now have the opportunity to take NKBA courses and exams to earn the following certifications: Associate Kitchen & Bath Designer (AKBD), Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD), Certified Bathroom Designer (CBD), and Certified Master Kitchen & Bath Designer (CMKBD). The certifications are voluntary and not required to perform the employee’s current job function. To become certified, applicants must meet minimum levels of education and experience and pass comprehensive exams.

“Lowe’s employees showcase dedication, passion and skill every day serving customers,” said Scott Purvis, Lowe’s vice president of human resources for stores. “The new relationship with the NKBA provides more opportunities for our kitchen and bath designers to build their skill sets and help customers turn the dreams for their homes into realities.”

The NKBA has upheld education as a foundational element to the organization and will continue to update its curriculum to meet the needs of all members. NKBA Learning and Development will continue to work closely with Lowe’s in developing appropriate and beneficial learning opportunities, which will include those offered in a virtual classroom environment.

“As the largest trade association representing the kitchen and bath industry, we are proud to welcome Lowe’s to our membership and include Lowe’s kitchen and bath employees in our respected and vast network of professionals,” stated Alan W. Zielinski, CKD, 2012 NKBA President.
