Training Collaboration: Restoration Technical Institute & The Center for Disaster Recovery


Restoration Technical Institute (RTI) and The Center for Disaster Recovery (CDR), Barrie, ON, collaborate  to close the educational gap between the property ownership, restoration, insurance, cleaning, and all industries  related to the built environment.

Both organizations have a rich history of delivering resources and training to the industry. They are both IICRC  approved schools offering both eLearning and live classes. This collaboration will allow them to enrich existing  offerings and to expand course availability for all who are involved in the restoration and operation of the built  environment.

There is great alignment between the organizations’ values, standards, and drive for excellence. Both  organizations have a passion for developing programs that focus and combine technical training with operational  success and in support of an individual’s personal growth. The collaboration will include efforts in sharing  existing curriculum and coordinating efforts in future program development.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with CDR lead by Stephanie Beattie an experienced IICRC  instructor for over two decades and an expert in an expansive and impressive array of subject matter. The only  downside of the collaboration is that our organizations’ synergy is so strong, rooted in our shared passion of  connecting technical skills, soft skills, and operational systems, we become a bit like mad scientists in sharing  ideas and planning future curriculum.” Lisa Lavender, COO, RTI.

Stephanie Beattie, CEO, The Center for Disaster Recovery said, “I am proud to work with RTI and believe that  this collaboration allows us to deliver consistent and expanded quality education to a global audience. The goal  is to engage our industry with defined alignment by working together to serve everyone from the newcomer, the  seasoned pro or those that just need a refresher. I am excited to inspire those in our industry.”

Chuck Boutall, Director of Education, RTI quotes, “This is an incredible partnership. Our goal is to unite owners  and insurers together with service providers, so we are all working towards one goal.” – “A healthy and pleasant property for all who live and work in the built environment.”
