Until Wannabe chimes in, start with the following.

Go to the IICRC.org website. Read about the classes they offer.

Wannabe suggested that I take WRT, FSRT, OCT, AMRT and ASD. So far, I have completed the first 3 classes listed above. AMRT and ASD are taught on location whereas the other classes are taught across the country. My plan is to get in the AMRT class sometime this spring.

I'm not looking to these classes/certifications for P&P. I'm planning on focusing on my construction and remodeling part of my company diversification.

As side note, my current renovation project requires lead and asbestos abatement. After seeing what the asbestos companies are charging, you may want to look into that.

Lead cert. and waiting for builder license!

Was the class difficult? WRT, FSRT, OCT, AMRT and ASD - How many classroom hours?

WRT was 2 days
FSRT was 2 days
OCT was 1 day

Classes were pretty easy, just spend a couple hours at night reviewing the instruction manual. The big downside for me was all three classes I had were 95+ % employees whose boss sent them. Not many business owners so the dialogue could have been more beneficial for me if it wasn't people being required to be there. The one thing that I greatly enjoyed was how knowledgable the instructors were. They had numerous (20 +) years experience and were teaching from real life examples.

Brad is 100% correct about the instructors and the classes. The IICRC and the IAQA instructors are very knowledgable and very very helpful. Most, if not all, will give you their phone numbers and you can call them anytime.

If I could add something I would be careful about falling for all the different acronyms. IICRC and IAQA are the two main associations and they know that while adding new certs. may enhance ones knowledge it also makes more money.

The difference between associations? Not much. In a nutshell, IICRC is more carpet cleaning world while IAQA is more indoor air quality (IH stuff). Save yourself time and money and pick one association to belong to and get the cert that best fits your needs. There are some independent service providers for them, and plenty of ones who are peddling their own curriculum with no recognized certification.

Are you going to be doing inspections or remediation? That's going to dictate the type of cert you want to get. Hope this helps.
