System owners rely on and expect quality installation or rehabilitation when maintaining their assets, which is why it’s essential that they have knowledgeable inspectors on the job. To be sure those inspectors are on the cutting edge in the appropriate technologies, they are required to become recertified on a regular basis, either online or in a classroom.

There are a few options when recertifying. You may choose the best option for you:
- Online with a self-paced course

- In a trainer-led 1.5 day session(virtual or in-person).
