RIA’s Fire Loss Specialist Advanced Certification Program is the newest of the four pillars of the enhanced Certified Restorer (CR) program. Who are the industry’s leading subject matter experts, how did they acquire this reputation, how can you work to becoming a recognized industry leader? The Restoration Industry Association (RIA) saw a need for specialized education and developed an advanced fire restoration course. There are many informative technical courses and certifications that lead to becoming a Master Fire and Smoke Restorer. However, there has not been a course that deals with contracts, ethics, project management, report writing and consulting in the discipline of fire damage. The Fire Loss Specialist (FLS) course covers a wide array of subjects including those listed above. This designation is for those individuals who wish to advance their career and become a recognized subject matter expert in this field.

The course will take place Friday, April 17 - Sunday, April 19, 2020. Course participants will be eligible to sit for the FLS exam* on Sunday, April 19th. 

Course registrants who successfully pass the FLS exam, must complete and submit the FLS prerequisite requirements by no later than December 31, 2020 in order to complete their certification and receive their certificate.

*Separate exam fees may apply. NOTE: The exam for this program is taken on a laptop.  Candidates are responsible for providing their own WiFi capable laptops. Certification exam may not be taken on a smartphone.
