Certification program verifies fire and safety inspectors and service companies’ credentials, certifications and training
ATLANTA, GA – October 8, 2014 - BuildingReports, the most trusted name in compliance reporting, today launches the TrueCompliance certification program. The program verifies an individual inspector as well as service companies’ credentials to ensure the proper certifications and training are in place as a professional service provider within the BuildingReports Member Network.
There are billions of fire and life safety devices that require individual testing, maintenance and inspection. BuildingReports has created the TrueCompliance certification program to ensure nothing is left to chance.
“There’s an old adage that says you’re only as strong as your weakest link,” said Jason Kronz, president and CTO of BuildingReports. “But with BuildingReports’s certification program, we’re removing any doubt from building owners and fire and safety officials’ mind that they are working with the best inspectors and service companies in the industry. We are also raising the level of awareness for inspectors and service companies who go above and beyond the average level of compliance inspections through the proper training and certifications.”
By enabling service companies to list their licenses, certifications, insurances, distributor relationships along with their employee’s details, building owners and fire and safety officials can rest assured that the service companies they do business with conduct thorough and fully compliant inspections.
“We pride ourselves not just on the volume of service providers in our member network, but in the quality of the service they provide across the country,” said Kronz.
The TrueCompliance certification program has two levels: the Certified level for inspectors and the Verified level for service companies.
- Certified Service Member - Individual inspectors can become certified in the TrueCompliance program by training on BuildingReports’ inspection reporting tools by a BuildingReports trainer. Once complete, the inspector receives a proof-of-training certificate which can be stored in the BuildingReports solution to automatically appear on all of their inspection reports. The “Certified Service Member” seal appears within a report when both the inspector and service company have received BuildingReports training. This assures building owners and managers that the inspector is trained on documenting a life safety compliance inspection correctly.
- Verified Service Member – Similar to the certified service member process, a service company can become verified by providing company licenses, certifications, affiliations and insurance details. BuildingReports verifies this information by contacting each association, insurance company, etc. to independently confirm the service company is up to date on each of the required documents. Verified service companies also receive a “Verified Service Member” seal that identifies them to building owners and managers as a higher-level BuildingReports member. Note: there is a fee associated at this level of the certification program.
