Become a Certified Home Watch Professional

HWSE - NHWA Certified Designation Logo 2

Since our official launch in 2010, Home Watch businesses have earned their Accredited Member status in the NHWA by meeting requirements and going through a vetting process that assures the public of their commitment to excellence by setting and upholding the very highest of standards in our industry. For the past few years, members of our Advisory Board, Best Practices Committee, as well as members at large, have been talking about creating a training curriculum for our members and their employees. The consensus was that we should “certify” these Home Watch Inspectors/Reporters and give them some sort of designation for them to display on their promotional material and website to announce their accomplishment.

Well, the conversation turned to action early in 2017, when our Advisory Board decided to move forward and begin to put the process in motion. The conversation commenced with discussions of what should be in the curriculum. It only made sense to base it on the NHWA’s Best Practices, Glossary of Terms and lots of input from leading Home Watch business owners throughout the United States and Canada. And, because we take the business of Home Watch so seriously, the curriculum is pretty serious, too.  With that, we are proud to announce the official NHWA Certified Home Watch Professional designation.

How do I earn my NHWA Certified Home Watch Professional designation?

Study the curriculum and pass the 50-question Certified Home Watch Professional online examination with a score of 90% or greater. Why 90%? Because a Certified Home Watch Professional sets the “Gold Standard for the Home Watch Industry!”


– Must be an owner/principal/employee of an NHWA member company in good standing.

– Must purchase the NHWA Certified Home Watch Professional curriculum and online examination at a cost of $250 per person, inclusive.
