 CPW - We'll come to you with this class!

 CPW - Certified Protocol Writer (Onsite/Online)

The NORMI Certified Protocol Writer (CPW) has been trained as an Assessor and understands the remediation concepts that support the IICRC S5200, IICRC S520, NYC Guildelines, and EPA Standards.

CE APPROVAL: This class has been approved for State of Florida Mold-Related Services Continuing Education credits for both Assessor and Remediator licenses, Course # 0000261 Course Provider MRS 0003605

Based on the NORMI Professional Practices, this experienced and well-trained professional develops a written protocol that follows industry standards and supports the NORMI Certificate of Sanitization program, assuring the client that the project will be done correctly and according to General Accepted Industry Standards.

The CPW develops a Scope of Work that protects the Remediator from down-side litigation and the homeowner from the recurrence of mold infestation.

What you'll learn...

"Assessors are trained in the Mold/IAQ assessment process, how to interpret lab reports, sanitization and remediation techniques. NORMI assessors have actually been trained in the remediation process by donning PPE, establishing containment and creating negative pressure in hands-on classes. However, we have learned that there is a significant gap between the assessment process and the remediation process that can only be filled by the assessor writing a well-written, easy-to-understand Mold Remediation Protocol. Insurance adjusters and Remediators expect the Assessor to assume liability for a well-written protocol so the Remediator can focus on PRV (post remediation verification). This class provides that training and bridges the gap between the assessment process and the remediation project." D. Douglas Hoffman, Executive Director of NORMI


Why this class is so practical...

"A poorly written protocol can increase project costs for the client and create liability for the contractor. Understanding how to fit the IICRC, NY City Guidelines and NORMI Standards into a properly written gives confidence to the Remediator, client and insurance adjustor." Lance Eisen, State of Florida Certified Mold Assessor

This class is offered in both onsite and LIVE online format designed to cover what is needed to write an effective, easy-to-understand protocol following accepted standards. The course covers:

  • The flow chart of reports needed to create a complete mold sanitization and/or remediation project,
  • Understand how to interpret and clearly explain laboratory reports,
  • Identify the specific location of remediation areas,
  • Estimate quantities of materials to be cleaned or removed,
  • Suggest remediation methods appropriate for the type of contamination,
  • Clarify PPE requirements specific to the project,
  • Identify proposed containment that should be used for each are of contamination,
  • Clarify need for discovery of moisture source and remedy,
  • Possibly suggest rebuild techniques to establish long-term solution,
  • Overlay NORMI Certificate of Sanitization protocol to Generally Accepted Standards,
  • Establish Clearance Criteria for PRV (Post Remediation Verification)

Course Requirements (Laptop Needed)

PLEASE TAKE NOTES: Student are encouraged to bring an electronic version of the IICRC S520 along with MSWord or other word processor. This is a practical training that allows the student to develop his own protocol template using standard copy/paste techniques. A laptop is not mandatory but extremely helpful in the classroom setting. The student will be given access to the electronic version of NORMI Professional Practices.
