(Wood Dale, IL, January 5, 2010) – Disaster Kleenup International (DKI), North America’s largest disaster restoration contracting organization, announced today that they are the first organization to have achieved the Green Risk Professional designation established by Vale Training Solutions.
DKI made the decision to partner with Vale Training Solutions for Green Risks training in response to the market’s demand for green building. The curriculum provided in Vale’s Green Risks courses has allowed DKI to continue at the forefront of industry trends, the company said.
“We have pioneered this movement by being the first and only disaster restoration and reconstruction organization to be green risk certified in building reconstruction and restoration services,” said Dale Sailer, president of DKI. “DKI understands that in today’s marketplace, individuals and organizations continually strive to do their part in building or creating green environments.”
Jon McCreath, President of Vale Training Solutions, says “As more carriers offer green coverage, independent adjusters, restoration professionals, and engineers must be adequately trained and possess the expertise and professionalism necessary to understand the makeup of green construction and building products, rating systems and insurance coverage.”
McCreath continued, “GRP adjusters and restoration professionals provide the expertise necessary when buildings are insured with 'upgrade to green' endorsements or where restoration/repairs include green measures to replace damaged traditional products”
