New Education Collaboration: Restoration Technical Institute & Large Loss Mastery

Restoration Technical Institute (RTI) and Large Loss Mastery (LLM) have created a new strategic collaboration in education.  

The organizations will join forces on the development and access to both live training events and eLearning. We  are excited for the opportunity to work together, and we look forward to more collaborations in the future. 

The synergy exists in the sharing of values and approaches in training. The experiences, existing curriculums,  and opportunity for future curriculum development makes this collaboration an exciting opportunity for both  organizations to expand its offerings and services to the industry at large. Tom McGuire, Large Loss Mastery,  has an extensive background in commercial disaster restoration and document recovery. He has developed  successful training programs focused on the recovery of properties damaged by fires, floods, and other natural  disasters. Chuck Boutall, RTI’s Director of Education, shares a similar background and has been lead instructor  of the IICRC Commercial Drying Specialist course and was instrumental in the development of the curriculum.  RTI and LLM have over 100 years combined experience in restoration and training supporting the delivery of  practical and applicable programs.  

LLM’s existing programs which include but are not limited to: Business Development, Project Management,  Estimating, and Document Recovery are a perfect complement to RTI’s diverse courses and content on topics  including but not limited to: water damage and intrusion, flooring and substrates, microbial remediation, cleaning,  building materials, construction, soft skills, and other training related to building services. RTI’s commercial  hands-on training center supports in-person training in addition to a platform that offers timely eLearning. The  efforts will launch with LLM’s Project Management Essentials and Document Recovery Courses offered in RTI’s  digital training environment as eLearning and is followed by one of LLM’s most popular courses, the live hands on ELITE Super Course featuring THE EDGE PLUS at RTI’s training center in October 2022.  

“I have known Tom for more than two decades and it is our privilege to be working with him and LLM, offering  excellent classes in Estimating and the Management of large commercial projects,” said Chuck Boutall, Director  of Education.  

I am very excited to be able to offer the Large Loss Mastery ELITE training program on the robust RTI training  platform. Bringing the live LLM ELITE Super Course and THE EDGE PLUS estimating system to the Greater  Philadelphia Area and the RTI training facility will be the highlight of the 2022 training schedule. It is wonderful  to have high quality people working together to expand educational platforms to better serve the ever-growing restoration industry. I couldn’t be happier, and I look forward to more collaborations with RTI as the Large Loss  Mastery Program continues to grow, ” said Tom McGuire, LLM.

The opportunities to work together extends beyond training programs as both organizations are affiliated with  cloud-based tools that support restorers in their operations. Tom has developed, THE EDGE PLUS, a one of a  kind estimating tool based on 35 years of project information and statistics. Designed to accurately calculate  budget, reserve, billable, project costs in less than 30 minutes. Lisa Lavender, COO of RTI is also the VP of  Operations Design for iRestore, a cloud-based management software system designed specifically to power the  vision, values, and leadership of restoration companies.
