AWARDS AND PERSONALIZATION ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES NEWLY CERTIFIED AWARDS, RECOGNITION PROFESSIONALS

CHICAGO, IL (April 23, 2018)—The Awards and Personalization Association is pleased to announce that three of its members have achieved professional certification. Through the Awards and Personalization Association certification program, awards and personalization professionals can achieve Certified Recognition Specialist (CRS) or Certified Recognition Master (CRM) designations.

The following members have achieved the status of Certified Recognition Specialist (CRS):

  • Wilson Brim of Southern Trophy House, Inc., Nashville, Tennessee
  • Ron Chapellaz of Chapellaz’s Trophies, St. Francois Xavier, Manitoba, Canada
  • Robert Thompson of Awards Factory, Wichita, Kansas

“When an Association member achieves his or her CRS distinction, they are proving their passion for, and commitment to, their profession, their business, and their customers,” said Awards and Personalization Association President Cody Stewart. “When consumers see the CRS designation, they know that their personalization provider is a dedicated professional that can offer them the best products personalized with the most up-to-date techniques.”

The Awards and Personalization Association’s certification program enhances the technical knowledge and business skills of its members through its education program which includes in-person training courses, webinars, home study materials, and special learning opportunities. For every 10 hours of instruction, a CEU (continuing education credit) is earned. It takes seven CEUs (70 hours) to become a Certified Recognition Specialist (CRS) and 17 CEUs (170 hours) to become a Certified Recognition Master (CRM).
