National Professional Housing Provider (PHP)

What is the NaPHP?

NaPHP stands for the National Professional Housing Provider Program.

What is the NaPHP designation?

The NaPHP designation is a nationwide, education-based certification program designed to recognize the high level of knowledge and professionalism among the designation holder. It is sponsored and overseen by the National Real Estate Investors Association (National REIA).

Why obtain NaPHP Designation?

Only persons completing the educational requirements will be permitted to hold themselves out to the public as a National Professional Housing Provider. The designee will be recognized in the form of an award certificate and the right to use the designation, and should recognize that having a basic education in the topics outlined will increase his or her ability to reach their goals in real estate investing. Further, as National REIA works to make the NaPHP designation more recognizable, it is hoped that the NaPHP holders will have an advantage in dealing with legal and governmental bodies when a “my word against his” situation occurs. It will also aid in encouraging legislators to think of educated investors as a larger group for political action. Other tangible benefits, including discounts on courses and educational materials, may be added as the program develops.
