ABRA – Certification Programs
The American Biorecovery Association has established an international program to test and certify students who have completed ABRA-approved training courses. These courses are offered by ABRA members who have met the stringent criteria of knowledge, experience and ability to present their course in an approved manner. Although each instructor must create their own program, which may vary in depth and presentation mode, each course must address the basic key points established, in order to be accepted; and provide the needed information to pass the ABRA certification exam.
The benefits of ABRA certification are:
1. It is a TRUE certification. True certification occurs when a student takes an exam designed by an independent certification body. Usually this is administered by a non-profit organization that is not associated with the presentation of the course itself. Individuals or companies that give a course and a certificate is not in itself a certification. It is simply a certificate.
2. ABRA instructors provide a balanced curriculum that includes science-based processes, current technology, accurate materials, and regulatory compliance information. As a technical course designed to enhance skills and knowledge, the emphasis is on developing a well-rounded technician.
3. ABRA training is live and personal. Our philosophy is that students enjoy and appreciate the benefits of meeting with their peers, sharing information, enjoying the camaraderie, as well as interacting with an experienced instructor who can address questions, concerns and pondering thoughts at the very moment they are conceived.
4. ABRA is the oldest and most respected organization of its kind. Other professional organizations, government agencies and related industry leaders recognize and respect ABRA’s standing in the restoration community. That is why ABRA Certification is the most sought after certification in the Crime and Trauma Scene BioRecovery Industry.
