The Certified Foundation Repair Specialist (CFRS) Program

These ideals include moral and professional integrity, compliance with local laws and ordinances, honest information in advertising and practice, and dedication to excellence.
The “Specialist Credential” is regarded as going beyond the normal standards of field work competency. Applicants are provided with a library of engineering and foundation repair methods study materials, across a wide spectrum, and must study diligently to pass a rigorous 3 hour, 150 question exam. The applicant is taken through many phases of common and critical thinking on foundation repair questions and circumstances using their practical experience and knowledge. The applicant must solve problems that occur regularly, or even rarely, and demonstrate a fluency in terminology.
