What did I like about the FLS? The FLS takes all of the knowledge that you have relating to fire restoration (in my case over 20 years’ worth and I’ve forgotten some) and builds on it. Sharing the unique experience and challenges of the FLS with a group of highly motivated people has given me bonds with my peers who are leaders and experts in their field. As a CR, I know that these bonds become friendships and they’ll always be there to share their expertise and I’ll be there for them too. I love a challenge and the FLS delivered. If you love a challenge and If you want to raise the bar and be recognized as a leader in the field of Fire Loss then the new RIA FLS Certification is for you.
