In-Depth Validation of Skills

All our certifications are a combination of onsite instructor-led training followed by an automated and supported online process. The online portion is a combination of repetitive questions, labs using your test equipment, and field exercises.

Our certification process is awarded using the following two tiers:

  • Temporary Certification: This certification is awarded immediately after an individual completes the classroom portion. It allows our customers to get out into the field working on sites, while completing the online certification process in parallel. It also has the added benefit of allowing us to monitor an individual’s progress to ensure they are performing measurements correctly.
  • Permanent Certification: This is awarded after an individual completes the entire process successfully within the allotted time. Individuals will receive a permanent plastic pictured badge. The certification is valid for life, but we recommend on-going continuing education to keep current with latest best practices and technologies.

We focus on applications and not pushing buttons. There are no sales pitches because our courses are manufacturer neutral and we do not use stressful written tests. Rather, our process supports making mistakes as a means of learning.

1. Ability to think outside the box will improve a contractor’s ROI.
  • Reduce the time and repeat visits per site, while improving a contractor’s reputation.
  • Reduce the number of measurements required per site.
  • Improve how measurements are performed to better protect contractors when future problems arise.
2. Validation of contractor's skills.
  • No guessing whether a contractor knows what they say they do.
  • Improved marketing for contractors.
3. Our unique process works for ALL levels, whether you are new to the industry or have over 30 years of experience.
  • Individuals completing our process will be experts.
