New Mold Classes Scheduled

Abita Springs, LA

January 11, 2018

NORMI announced today that for the first quarter of 2018, mold classes are being held in a variety of onsite locations for both private companies and the local professionals.  These classes feature the propriety concurrent training approach assembling assessors and remediators in the same classroom and some are specifically designed to fit the business who requested it.

“We have seen a surge of interest in our mold classes,” said Doug Hoffman, Executive Director of NORMI, “because our private classes can be uniquely tailored to fit the business for whom we’re training.  And they are fun, interesting, innovative and engaging.  In those cases where the business owner wants a class without his competition in the room, we take our basic course and make it fit his business model so he gets the exactly what his guys need without any extraneous material.  Saves him money and time.  We now have classes planned in New York, Florida, North Carolina, California and the Virgin Islands to meet the needs of our client.  It’s an exciting time.”

Lance Eisen, COO of NORMI, reported that the onsite schedule showing a host of onsite classes at the Best Training School website do not include private classes which are designed for a specific company.  “It great that we are flexible enough to be able to do this because taking our class to a specific company solves a lot of problems for the company that is too busy to pull all of their people away for a field trip to some other city.  This benefit is one of our best kept secrets.”

The CMA and CMR certification classes are designed, where needed, to fit the specific state where licensing is required and the NORMI certification adds credibility to the professional who is working in a state where licensing is not required.  If you’re considering a high quality training for your crew, give NORMI a call at 877.251.2296 or email support@normi.org for more information.  If you’re interested in an onsite public class at an established location, go to www.BestTrainingSchool.com and select the class closest to you.  NORMI, a dynamic leader for a dynamic industry.

NORMI Water Classes Will Change Your Business!

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

Abita Springs, LA

NORMI, the National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors, announces a brand-new direction for mold professionals.  Water extraction and drying classes are now a part of the onsite training program offered to mold professionals, both assessors and remediators.  The classes are designed to educate anyone who does emergency drying or water losses to eliminate the possibility of proliferating mold growth.

“We are so excited to move into this arena because water extraction and drying is so misunderstood,” said Doug Hoffman, Executive Director of NORMI.  “The mold professional must know the proper way to dry structures, construction materials and contents and, unfortunately, the professionals most people are drawn to are unfamiliar with the proper techniques for drying and proving that it is dry.  I love the approach we’re taking because it’s about objective proof, not what somebody ‘thinks’ they’ve accomplished.”

The NORMI Mold Damage Prevention (MDP) class is the first in a series of five (5) trainings that will be conducted by Mark Wichern to improve the industry.  Insurance companies and the public wan a drying solution that is affordable and efficient.  Older techniques in the industry simply don’t work.

As an emergency services provider for water events like flooding, water leaks or other water events, you will want this training.  For more information, see Best Training School or call NORMI at 877.251.2296.  Insurance adjusters, call for special pricing and group training options.

Dr. Oz Recommends Certification/Licensing for Mold Professionals

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

Abita Springs, LA  03/12/17

Dr. Oz completed a great segment on 02/27 dealing with toxic mold and the dangers the public may face when being scammed by unlicensed, untrained mold guys.  NORMI and the IICRC were upheld as “the good guys”, credible, national training/certification organizations that help clients with assessing and cleaning up mold problems in indoor environments.

NORMI, the National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors was founded July 4, 2004 to train and certify mold remediators under the State of Louisiana Mold Licensing Law.  Since then, NORMI has trained thousands of assessors, remediators and IAQ professionals throughout the United States and Canada.  Its certifications have been recognized by states who require training for licensure including, but not limited to, New York, Florida, Louisiana and the District of Columbia.

The mold profession has long been plagued with scammers, non-professionals who claim they can detect mold and clean it up.  Many of these do NO testing, are not trained building assessors and do not know that bleach WILL NOT clean mold.  Dr. Oz addresses each of these subjects in his well-written segment which include Mike Holmes, a builder and television personality who touted the importance of finding good guys like NORMI and the IICRC.
