Inspection & Preliminary Determination with John Banta of Restoration Consultants

A unique two-day program that provides restorers and remediators with the training needed to inspect buildings and develop a preliminary determination consistent with the IICRC S500 and S520. Appropriate documentation limits liability, helps to develop an accurate scope, and provides the basis to generate accurate and well documented invoices. Additionally, by identifying pre-existing conditions and other building related issues, restorers can minimize complaints and potential litigation.

Are you following the Industry Standard of Care? This course will take you through the IICRC S520 and S500 Standards and give you the information that you need to put practices into your company to properly track, record and document your jobs to reduce your company’s liability and risk.

This is the first time that this course will be held in this region. This course will pay for itself as you implement the program into your business.

Cost: PCUCA Members - $329
Non-Members - $399
