Eric Schleicher, CLC

Prairie Design Build is pleased to announce that Eric Schleicher has recently achieved the prestigious Certified Lead Carpenter status. A Certified Lead Carpenter (CLC) designation proves the individual’s superior knowledge, technical comprehension, and skill.

NARI’s CLC program measures skill and expertise valued not only by other professional carpenters, but by consumers, as well.  Highly respected by those who have achieved the designation, the CLC program identifies professional carpenters who have undergone comprehensive review and testing in areas of business, technical, communication, and quality assurance.  In addition, they must also adhere to NARI’s strict Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.  The NARI Certification program assesses the knowledge and skills of the carpenter in over 21 task areas, including business basics, job site safety, tools, building codes and construction law, building site layout, and all trade skills required in constructing your home.  Attaining this certification requires the candidate to have been working full time in the field for at least 5 years— two as a lead carpenter—and passing a comprehensive assessment exam.  Preparation for this exam takes up to 16 weeks of intensive study and self-examination.  

Congratulations to Eric on this prestigious accomplishment!
