NMRA Achievement Program
Dick Roberts MMR

Great model railroad layouts make great model railroaders. Are you working on a layout or module? Are you interested in sharing your work? Want some recognition from the NMRA? The Achievement Program (AP) is designed to let you share the results of your efforts with others by simply doing what your hobby lets you do, enjoy trains. There are several elements within the Achievement Program that will develop and test your modeling skills and earn you a certificate of achievement. This program is not meant as a competition among our members but a way to improve your modeling skills and enjoyment of the hobby. Many of our members do not participate because they believe their work must be judged in a contest. However, most of the work that is done while constructing a model railroad qualifies the builder for an achievement award in several of the categories, and it is not judged in a competition; achievement certificates are awarded for completion of specific requirements for each category, not contest points, per se.

The San Diego Division is embarking on a program to assist any member who wants to participate in the Achievement Program; this program will provide some hands-on help with evaluation criteria, modeling skills and documentation for the certificates. We hope you will be encouraged to participate in this opportunity to learn and grow in your hobby. If you have any questions or would like to get started, please contact any of the Divisions MMR's: Don Fowler, Rodger Gredvig, Don Ham, Dick Roberts or Paul Schmitt.
