Restoration Technical Institute (RTILearning.com) and iRestore, Restoration Company  Management Software Have Collaborated

March 9, 2023 Phone: 610-926-0223

Reading, PA
, Restoration Technical Institute (RTILearning.com) and iRestore, Restoration Company  Management Software, Palm City, FL, have collaborated and integrated in their joint mission to provide solutions  that help restorers serve their purpose and have positive business driven results.  

With the simple click of a button, iRestore users can now access MY LEARNING through Restoration Technical  Institute’s signature product, the Digital Training Solution. iRestore customers have access to iRestore specific  training videos as well as a variety of additional resources provided by RTI organized and housed in a digital  learning management system designed to support training and implementation of the software solution. In  addition to the software specific training and resources that support employee development and operational  success, users will have the option to upgrade their portal to gain access to more high impact training and  resources. This includes templates, SOPS, technical, operational, safety and more via Restoration Technical  Institute.  

There was instant synergy and passion for serving the restoration industry when the Lavenders, owners of  Restoration Technical Institute and Ryan Smith, founder of iRestore met and became business partners. They  each are restorers, so they have a keen insight into the challenges when designing, creating, and delivering  solutions to the market. In 2020, RTI was forced to pivot as the core curriculum in the form of in-person training  events came to a screeching halt. Although the mission did not change, RTI changed their course to embrace and  harness the benefits of delivering training digitally. Lavender says, “Using software solutions and new  approaches in Learning and Development is not new, it was just new for us in 2020. Many industries globally  have been leveraging this approach for years.”  

“We are a very collaborative software company embracing all opportunities to integrate and work with other  solution developers to deliver customer success. This integration is an extension of our approach, and I am thrilled  to offer our users another solution to one of their biggest pain points; onboarding, training, and development of  the team.” Smith said. 

Lisa Lavender exclaims, “I started in this industry in 2000 and had no idea where it would lead. In 2012, when  we started RTI, it was out of the realization that I wanted to work with restorers and help to instill pride and joy that comes from the opportunity of serving others. Personally, this integration is a dream come true.”

IICRC Revision of ANSI/IICRC S500: 2021 Standard 


Revision of ANSI/IICRC S500: 2021 Standard 

Las Vegas, Nevada - January, 27, 2023. The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) announces the initiation of the revision of the ANSI/IICRC S500: 2021 Standard. 

Applications are now being accepted for volunteers to serve on the Consensus Body for the revision of the ANSI/IICRC S500 Standard for Professional Water Damage Restoration. 

This S500 Standard provides a specific set of practical standards for water damage restoration. It does not attempt to teach comprehensive water damage restoration procedures; rather, it provides the foundation for basic principles of proper restoration practices. It does not attempt to include exhaustive performance characteristics or standards for the manufacture or installation of structural components, materials, or contents (personal property). 

The IICRC is seeking volunteers from the following stakeholder categories: restoration companies and workers; those who investigate or assess abnormal water intrusion, prepare restoration specifications, procedures and protocols, and manage restoration projects, (e.g., indoor environmental professionals (IEPs), and other specialized experts); and other potential materially interested parties (e.g., consumers and occupants, property owners and managers, insurance company representatives, government and regulatory bodies). 

To submit your application, https://iicrc.org/s500/

About the IICRC The IICRC is 

international, ANSI-accredited 

standard-development organization (SDO) that certifies individuals in 20+ categories within the inspection, cleaning and restoration industries.
