Designed for leaders in the industry and auction firm decision-makers, the CAI is an executive development program focused on developing the skills and providing the tools necessary to run a top-notch auction firm.
Designation holders have the knowledge and skill necessary to provide high-quality services to all types of clients.
In addition, their designation indicates to attorneys, trust officers, government officials, financial planners, accountants and others who seek the services of well-qualified auctioneers that the CAI designation holder is an astute business person whose conduct will follow the highest professional standards.
Once the CAI designation is earned, the auctioneer must then maintain the designation with 24 hours of continuing education every three years.
The Certified Auctioneers Institute has been helping auctioneers discover their potential for more than 30 years. Auctioneers with the CAI designation are part of an extraordinary network of exemplary auctioneers in the auction industry.
