NORMI, the National Organization of Remediators and Mold inspectors, announced today that a single-tier membership level has been established for all ACTIVE NORMI Members beginning March 1, 2013. At www.NORMIPro.com, the following designations will apply:
ACTIVE—Those trained professionals who are currently and actively working in the industry of their choosing and who are taking advantage of all of the personal and business benefits of ACTIVE status.
PENDING—Those potential members who have registered for an upcoming class awaiting approval for membership and/or certification.
CHARTER—This new designation applies to ACTIVE Members who have a long history of membership and involvement in the industry of their area of expertise.
INACTIVE—Those trained professionals who have chosen to become inactive in the industry or not re-certify in the area of expertise in which they were trained.
NORMIProETF–This logo indicates that this member is a part of the NORMIPro Environmental TASC Force and available, when needed, for disaster recovery or other charitable work.
“These new designations are important to the public because it indicates the level of involvement the specific trained professional has in the industry,” said Doug Hoffman, Executive Director of NORMI. “The public needs to be able to see, at a glance, the current training status of the person they intend to hire and by having this information readily available, NORMI provides credibility and dynamic, up-to-date information regarding that professional. This information might otherwise be very difficult to find.”
NORMI certifies those who have been trained by its approved training providers after that individual has completed the certification process that sometimes includes municipal licensing, field experience and insurance. The potential client is still advised to request information from the listed professional regarding the current status of licensing, insurance and request referrals but the http://www.NORMIPro.comwebsite does speed the process and eliminate some of the concerns a potential client might otherwise have.
