What now?

Now that the year-long grandfathering period for those involved in emergency operations has expired, we are moving on to yet another certification for those specializing in fire and smoke damage.  This new track of specialty credentials should be available to all this fall.  Planned are an entry level, an accredited two-year field-experienced level and an accredited eight-year field-experienced level.

Are You Correct?

Can you explain to your client what a “professional certification” is?  We can – and others can, too.  As an example, here’s a link to a short explanation that benchmarks what an accredited certification is. 

Looking for Course Providers?

Candidates for ACAC certifications have many options available prior to sitting for an examination.  Some choose to challenge our exams by reading examination texts and utilizing their existing field experience.  Others seek the old fashioned brick and mortar classroom settings, which offer hands on instruction and networking with other candidates.  And then there are the new interactive online courses, which allow you to forgo the expense of travel and time away from work.  Whatever you seek, we think you’ll find an independent course provider who meets your needs.  ACAC lists the course providers who are recommended by our certification candidates

Wow!  Take a look at all the new offerings.

Polishing your professional image requires expanding your knowledge.  One of the easiest ways to do this is to read up on current industry topics at the ACAC online library. Texts on Avian Flu, West Nile virus, Ebola, etc. are quick reads and allow you to impress your clients with your knowledge.  Best of all, recertification credits (RCs) are awarded after a short online examination on the topic.

Successful Marketing Among Peers.

Your clients will understand your professionalism when they find you among the industry’s elite in the new ACAC hosted webpages.  Take a look at the new webpages for ACAC certificants, their employers and those providing expert witnessing.  Inexpensive, but very impressive.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
