ORLANDO, FL — The Restoration Industry Association (RIA), now celebrating its 70th anniversary, will hold the International Restoration Convention and Industry Expo March 21-23 at the Marriott World Center in Orlando.

The RIA convention is the restoration industry’s premier event for learning new and innovated industry trends, building new skills, networking with industry peers and suppliers and exchanging thoughts and ideas on the future of the industry.

During the convention, RIA will hold an induction ceremony of RIA advanced certification candidates who have completed all requirements for the Certified Restorer (CR), Water Loss Specialist (WLS) and Certified Mold Professional (CMP) designations, which is considered an annual highlight of the convention. CR candidates must meet rigorous prerequisites, attend a six-day CR prep course, pass the CR certification exam with a score of at least 80 percent, and finally, complete a Formal Report, which is peer reviewed. Candidates from previous classes who completed all requirements will be inducted at the 2016 ceremony in addition to successful 2015 candidates.

The full event agenda is available here. Regular registration will continue up until March 20, the day prior to the convention. To register for the event, CLICK HERE.
