Our Instructors

Our trainers are experienced consultants and contractors who share tested, practical approaches to real-world problems and concerns. Several of our instructors taught in UC Berkeley’s Asbestos and Lead courses for that program's 29 years in existence. Several have also been involved in developing and updating hazardous materials regulations and model curriculum. We learn from professionals in all aspects of the industry and share those informed perspectives in class.
