Four NCBI Students Earn Designation

All coursework completed through the North Carolina Builder Institute, whether for continuing education or just professional development, counts towards designations such as Accredited Builder (AB), Accredited Master Builder (AMB) and Accredited Remodeler, etc. The best part? The AB and AMB designations appear on your NC General Contractor’s license. That means when a prospective client searches your license online, they’ll see evidence of your hard work and knowledge! Two great reasons to choose you over someone else. For more information, visit

Congratulations to the following four students on the designations they have earned.

David Schwieman • Charlotte, NC
Accredited Builder

David Schwieman is the owner of D. R. Schwieman, Inc. in Charlotte and specializes in home repairs, remodels, additions and new building. He has instilled in his company the motto, “Figure out what is right and then do it right.” Schwieman believes knowledge is critical to a builder’s success, particularly in an industry that seems to change constantly.

Why NCBI? “Building is a profession,” Schwieman says. “In a profession, others look to you for professional paperwork, numbers, communication, appearance and, above all, knowledge and experience. In a profession that changes every day, gaining more knowledge is critical.”

Rusty Kling • CRK Builders, Inc. –Wilmington, NC
Accredited Builder

Rusty Kling has been building for more than 20 years. He is the owner of CRK Builders, Inc., a design-build company that specializes in custom kitchen and bath renovations and custom home design/implementation.

He holds Accredited Builder and Accredited Remodeler designations from NCBI and recently became an instructor for the Institute.
