The difference between NHWA Accreditation and NHWA Certified Home Watch Professional (CHWP)



It’s really satisfying for us to see a growing number of people starting Home Watch companies. Fourteen years ago, when we founded the NHWA, not many knew who we were or even what Home Watch was. Starting a Home Watch business makes a lot of sense for many of you whose worlds have changed so much in the last couple of years. Between remote work and the huge swings in the Real Estate market, more and more of you have realized the opportunity Home Watch creates. That said, when we are contacted at the NHWA, many of you ask about becoming certified, when you should be asking about having your company become accredited. Here is the difference:

A company becomes “NHWA Accredited” after company principals have been background checked, a vetting process has been completed, and certain requirements have been met. Once your company earns NHWA Accreditation, we are letting the world know that they are dealing with a company worthy of our endorsement. As an NHWA member, CHWP status can be earned for individuals within that company. The NHWA takes our CHWP designation very seriously. We believe that without practical experience, the essence of our curriculum, continuing education, and online examination, the process will carry no weight or the credibility this designation warrants. A certification without gravitas is simply a piece of paper.

The NHWA is committed to the mentoring of our members through our many resources. Our Home Watch Boot Camp is by far the most comprehensive training available in the Home Watch industry—bar none. Whether conducted in person at one of our many locations throughout the US (and soon Canada) or virtually, you will be instructed by one of the top people in the Home Watch industry IN REAL TIME. We know that having A LIVE INSTRUCTOR helps our students build a stronger foundation for their new business.

Considering a future in Home Watch? Your first and best move is to become a part of the National Home Watch Association.

As always, I wish you

Much success,

Jack Luber
Executive Director
