NAHRO Commissioners Training - FAQ

  • Is it actually training for Commissioners? Yes
  • Is this training included in the registration fee or is it an additional $200? Additional $200 per person
  • Is it any different from the standard AAHRA Commissioner training? Yes, by completing both classes you would receive a NAHRO certification

AAHRA has a new link on the website entitled “FORUM”. The FORUM will be a way for users to submit questions and have them answered by their peers for everyone to see.
When you first click the FORUM link, you will be asked to create a username and password. Your username will be displayed when you create a new question or respond to someone. 
There are 2 channels created to help with organizing questions. The first is labeled General Questions and the second is Vendors/RFPs. Choose which your questions fit into best. For instance, if you want to know the name of a good pest control company, you should ask under Vendors/RFPs. If you question is related to a policy, choose to ask the question under General Questions.
