proActive Safety March Report

Thank you for taking some time to read our proActive Safety March Report. After having primarily an email newsletter for the last 10 years. We have noticed less people opening the newsletter, so we are going to start posting a little bit more on the blog.

Please share your feedback with us. If there is something you want us to cover, please let us know. We are curious about safety and love to learn about new topics, or the topics that are important to you. If we can add them to the proActive Safety March Report, we will.

Congratulations to the University of Cincinnati, and the Cincinnati Bengals!

EPA Lead Renovator June Training Schedule is being posted!

We have moved to a confirmed only model for our open enrollment Lead Renovator Training classes. With this model, we must be careful to schedule the courses when other training providers are not in certain markets. Due to this, it is taking quite a bit longer to get the schedule posted.

If you would like a class in a certain market for a future date. Please email or dial 877-209-9648. In most cases we would be willing to setup a class for you.

Please reach out early for private classes!

With the new schedule model. We have left Monday and Friday open for private classes. However, with enough notice we can be flexible with the day of the week. Typically, most people start to register for the open enrollment courses about 3 weeks prior to the course date.

If you know that you will need a private class on a Wednesday. If you can contact us two or three weeks prior to the date you need. We should be able to accommodate your request. If you have any questions, or you would like to schedule a private class email or dial 877-209-9648.

Looking for trainers in distant markets!

Unfortunately, the Covid pandemic has really had an impact on how we operate the company. Prior to Covid, we were able to fly our trainers from Florida to California and teach courses in both cities on consecutive days. At the time of writing the proActive Safety March Report. Inflation is extremely high.  With the reduction of available flights we have had to reduce our workforce by 10 trainers. It is difficult for us to teach in some markets that are more than an 8-hour drive from Cincinnati, OH.

Over the past few years, we have started working with a very select few renovators who have contacted us about training, and a few that we reached out to during class. This has been a win, win for everyone. We can offer the class more frequently, and the local renovator, who has availability. Can earn additional revenue and develop a new skill.

If you are interested in a part-time position with us instruction the EPA RRP Initial and Refresher Certification courses please reach out to me. You can reach me by email or dial 513-550-3860.
