 CBA - NORMI™ Certified Biocide Applicator

When addressing IAQ problems, SURFACE contamination must also be considered. There are some very good IAQ solutions (many for which we do training) that are extremely pro-active in their approach to solve indoor air quality problems, however, surface contamination is so prolific, in most cases, air purification cannot keep up with the contamination. Contact transmission is one of the most common reasons for the spread of bacteria, viruses, and their subsequent illnesses so in every environment, surface cleaning and protecting is equally important to air purification.

As a CBA you will learn to apply approved, green technology, safe and proven anti-microbials, protectants, encapsulates, biocides, and other chemicals for the prevention and control of surface microbes including mold, bacteria, and algae. Having the ability to offer long-term warranties for such contaminants is an added benefit to build your business around this certification.

This class designed to train you in a better understanding of surface contaminants and the problems with current commonly used but less effective products. "Bleach does not kill mold" so true biocides need to be understood and promoted for effectively killing mold and mildew. Many of these well-known products set up a chemical environment that allows microbes to mutate and become "superbugs" and we train the student to understand why it is important to use products that are mechanical kill products instead of chemically leaching products. This fits well with our desire to use environmentally safe and effective technologies and we encourage you to do the same whenever possible.

This NORMI CBA Class is the pre-requisite for the 2 Day AAA Class. Upon successful completion of this class you will be eligible to be trained as an AAA. For more information on the AAA program or to register for the 2 day AAA course click here.

ONSITE Classes

The onsite class is a two and a half hour class under the direction of a NORMI Senior Trainer where a tight and very specific agenda, as seen below, is followed. The primary difference between ONSITE and ONLINE classes is the ability of the instructor to better personalize the class and provide some product to the attendees.

ONLINE Classes

The online class follows the same schedule as the ONSITE class and is also under the direction of a NORMI Senior Trainer. It utilizes an interactive audio and visual Internet experience as it leads you through this LIVE training. This class is best experienced with a computer that has a high-speed connection capability and you will need a computer headset with microphone and earpiece so you can respond to and ask questions. Pre-registration is required.
