This experience must have occurred within three years of the date of application. You must have supervised or observed at least five installation projects that include a variety of installation details for that system.

Candidates choosing Option C must submit information about project dates, customer names, locations and types of projects. NRCA reserves the right to verify work experience and decision-making authority.
