Become a Certified Reverse Mortgage Professional

CRMP logo

Welcome to the Certified Reverse Mortgage Professional (CRMP) web page.

One of our goals as an industry trade association is telling consumers with confidence, you can depend on a NRMLA member. Saying it is one thing; proving it is another. That is why NRMLA created the Certified Reverse Mortgage Professional (CRMP) designation.

In every industry, there are individuals who strive to excel. They often do so by earning a credential that distinguishes them as being among the most knowledgeable, the most competent and the most ethical and professional.

They make a considerable investment in both time and personal income because they believe in themselves, they believe in the customers they serve, and they believe in the service or product they offer.

They want to distinguish themselves from the pack.

While hundreds of NRMLA members have accumulated continuing education credits, only 106 individuals have had the CRMP bestowed on them since June 2010. If you are interested in learning more about the CRMP, please consult the various documents provided on this page.
