Summary: Is the answer A, B, C, or D? Those are the options we have come to know and accept with industry certification examinations. These exams primarily test cognitive abilities, but leave out physical competency. The cleaning and restoration industry is about to take it to the next level with performance assessments for positions such as carpet cleaning, water damage, and beyond. Spend time with Barry Costa as he explains how the team at ICRA is adding another (valuable) level of testing for technician proficiency in our industry.
The Restoration Nation Challenge: How well do you know the abilities of your technicians? Are your internal training procedures getting watered-down with each incoming employee? What kind of quality control measure do you have in place for technician performance?
Motivational Quote: Life Lesson number 5 is from Barry’s daughter Kim: “Touch as many lives as you can.” Every time you meet someone new, you leave a little bit of yourself with them. They are affected by you. The more people you meet, the more complete both their and your lives are because of how you have been affected by each other. Think of the possibilities.
