Hackettstown, N.J.-based National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), has signed an agreement to partner with the Living in Place Institute (LIPI) of Louisville, Colo., to offer design professionals working in the kitchen and bath space LIPI’s Certified Living in Place Professional (CLIPP) Certification Program endorsed exclusively by the NKBA.
Industry studies reveal that the two most common rooms in which accidents occur are the kitchen and the bathroom.
The CLIPP certification program was developed specifically to make “all homes accessible, comfortable and safe.”
LIPI advocates inter-professional teaming with aligned individuals and associations/groups in all facets of home/human interaction. LIPI encourages all CLIPP professionals — and those desiring CLIPP certification — to align with the NKBA to design and build “safe, beautiful and functional kitchen and bath spaces.”
LIPI co-founders and managing partners, Erik Listou and Louie Delaware said in a joint statement that the alliance is a win-win for current and future NKBA members who can leverage their NKBA membership to earn a Certified Kitchen & Bath Designer (CKBD) designation, as well as a CLIPP certification — all from one source.
