About This Course

YOUR EMPLOYEES LOOK TO YOU TO BE THE EXPERT.  SO DO YOUR CLIENTS.  BE THE EXPERT!  If you want to be fully trained in the science, chemistry, microbiology and regulatory issues of this industry, we can help.  This course is unlike anything else available anywhere.  

It will help broaden the scope of what your company can offer and help you become the expert you want to be.  

Learn more about crime scene biorecovery.  

Learn more about disinfecting all types of microbial pathogens and the science behind how they live, reproduce, the diseases they cause and how to destroy them.  

Regardless of your background, previous training or educational level, you will benefit from the information in what is perhaps the most in-depth and comprehensive course in the world.  We include almost 1,100 slides and videos in 35 chapters crammed full of the best information available.  

This science-heavy course is packed into about 20 hours of lectures and quizzes and qualifies for 20 CEU's from the IICRC and ABRA.  YOU HAVE 60 DAYS TO COMPLETE THE COURSE FROM THE TIME YOU REGISTER.  You can stop the course and re-open it as needed.  You can review each chapter or portion of each chapter as many times as needed until you feel you understand the material.  There are quizzes at the end of each chapter.  Once you reach the end of the course, you cannot go back.  Just like an in-person course, when it's over....it's over.  There is no book, cheat sheet or reference to accompany this course, so it's imperative that you take lots of notes.  You can pause slides to give you time to write.  If you have questions, I am here to answer, weekdays 10am to 5pm eastern time.

If you intend to take the American BioRecovery Association CBRT exam, please go to their website to see all the pre-requisite requirements for taking that exam BEFORE taking this course.
