RIA to induct newest CR candidates at its 70th Anniversary Convention


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

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.
