The NAA (National Auctioneers Association) provides its members with a diverse range of professional designation courses specifically built to help Auctioneers specialize while expanding their professional knowledge. Several members of our staff have achieved the professional designation. Larry Atterberry Jr. holds the CAI designation.


CAI stands for Certified Auctioneers Institute. This professional designation is awarded to practicing auctioneers who meet the experiential, educational and ethical standards set by the NAA Education Institute. In order to be granted the CAI designation, auctioneer scholars must have been practicing full-time auctioneers for at least two year (prior to attending the institute), attend all three years of CAI with more than 120 classroom hours, complete all special projects and complete 24 hours of continuing education every three years.
