THE FLOORING INSPECTORS EDUCATIONAL GUILD
THE GUILD WAS STARTED TO HELP INSPECTORS MOVE BEYOND CERTIFICATIONS TO BECOME EDUCATED IN THE SCIENCE OF THEIR TRADE.
First, the webinar is now starting at Noon on September 29, 2021.
The first class is Concrete Moisture Testing with New Technology.
Relative humidity testing is often described as a specific date and time measurement.
The new technology now allows an additional visit that eliminates moisture problems.
This will, increase profits for everyone and protects the contractor's profits.
Instructor: Andrew Rynhart, CEO Tramex Meters
As the cases of the virus surges in the South, we became concerned for our students. The Guild consulted with several doctors in the region asking their professional medical opinion. Each suggested, that in-person events in the region is not advisable. For that reason, we are only having a Webinar at this time. The classes **ARE NOT CANCELLED.** The Guild is still having our Webinar but the in-person classes will expose our students to unnecessary risk. That we will not do.
Our Fall Classes will be a webinar to meet your ever changing educational and health requirements and needs.

This class will teach you the connectivity of adhesives for different types of flooring and bonding issues to concrete. Do you know the different adhesives types and their characteristics? This class ties in directly with the class from Day 1.
[Tramex:] After Mr. Thornton special class, Andrew Rynhart, Tramex CEO and William will do a brief review of the Day 1 Class relating the two first classes together.
If you don't know your adhesives and the basics of concrete moisture testing, then, you are giving your profits away to your competitors.
After lunch we have Shaw Technical Department's Nick Carter and Lemarta Faulknor, with Evan Lauridsen, from Shaw Industries. They will discuss, and demonstrate installation methods for their products and also show how improperly installed flooring can happen and how to recognize the errors by demonstrating mistakes installers often make.
Why is this important to flooring professionals and restoration professionals? Learn how to avoid costly mistakes by subcontractors to protect your profits. Importance to Inspectors? If you can't explain how it happen, you are not the expert needed to inspect it. With this teaching method you learn the right way, the wrong way and how the wrong way looks. You got to know this to succeed in the flooring trade.
Jeff Offredo from Bona Finishes.
Jeff will teach us about the different types of wood floor finishes, sanding issues after a water loss, and finishing mistakes so Restoration Professionals can understand and avoid mistakes by their subcontractors. If you are called to examine a site sand / finish complaint, you had better know what it is, how it happen and more importantly, how to report it using the correct terms. Jeff is one of Bona's leading sand and finish instructors.
Next - Delmhorst Meters. Delmhorst Meters has supported the Guild and our mission for advance education since we started doing seminars and now, webinars. Delmhorst is sending one of their best, Ilene Cohn, to teach to help inspectors and restorers work smarter and better, to protect and increase their profits.
[Delmhorst:] Ilene Cohn, Delmhorst Meters, will teach a class on meters and how to properly use them. Using a meter seems simple? Do you know the "drift" and what information you should gleam from the readings?
The New Navigator and the new [Series of Restoration Meters, BDX-20 & 30] can take your services to the next level but, you have to know how to use them properly. We see reports where people are using cheap Big Box meters and don't know how to use them. In one report, the inspector stated he was unable to "stick the wood". _Come on now, we can do better!_
Delmhorst continues after lunch and they have a new specially designed meter just for the Restoration Trade. Do you know when your building materials are dry? This meter will answer those questions. This meter will take you, the restoration person to the next level in the services you offer. BUT, you have to know how to use this meter correctly.
Why this Class? Knowing how building materials dry is important or costly call backs can happen to steal-away your profits
After Ms. Cohn's classes, two of the Restoration Industry best instructors take over the day. Jermey Reets and Micky Lee will teach a class on restoration practices and drying residential and commercial buildings.
Inspectors, do you know the "whys and hows" of restoration drying? Restoration Pros, learn how to use new equipment to Protect Your Profits.
Our last class, is a "dozy"! William Thornton returns to present a class that each inspector and retailer finds most difficult to process.
Lighting and flooring, how to evaluate.
This is one you should not miss live.
