Stand Up and Be Recognized, May 2017 Recognition Program Graduates!

DPHA is pleased to honor the May 2017 graduating class of DPH professionals who have successfully passed all of the new Recognition Program examinations. They are: 

Bath & Kitchen Category:
  • Paul Martin, Simon's Supply
Hardware Category:
  • Noelle Rogovin, The Plumbing Place 
General Knowledge Category:
  • Paul Martin, Simon's Supply
Special Acknowledgement to those who have completed all THREE categories - Bath & Kitchen, Hardware and General Knowledge:
  • Paul Martin, Simon's Supply
  • Noelle Rogovin, The Plumbing Place
And for those folks who are current participants in the Recognition Program but who initially signed up for the testing program prior to January 1, 2017, don't forget that, as we announced in earlier issues of Connections, you will need to successfully complete the following four revised tests before being eligible to receive your 2017 category completion certificates:
  1. Lavatory Faucets (Bath & Kitchen Category)
  2. Kitchen Faucets (Bath & Kitchen category)
  3. Locks and Latches (Hardware category)
  4. Care and Maintenance (General Knowledge category)
The DPHA Recognition Program recognizes DPH showroom professionals for their product knowledge and sales expertise. The program is available only to DPHA members. The series of exams are based on information contained in the DPHA Education Program manuals, and each exam relates to an individual product category (e.g. lavatory faucets, tubs, cabinet hardware, etc.). To be recognized in each category, participants must answer 100% of the questions correctly. DPHA will electronically issue certificates to those participants who successfully pass all of the bath and kitchen, hardware and/or general knowledge programs. 

Additionally, the Education Committee, under the leadership of Fred Felder (Simon's Supply) and Traci D'Antoni (D'Antoni Sales Group), along with the Recognition Program Subcommittee headed by Jerry Williams (WMS Decorative Resource), is excited to announce a new benefit for the Recognition Program participants - anyone who successfully completes all 22 testing modules in 2017 will receive a desk name plate announcing their accomplishment.
