LOA Training and Certification at USIBD's 2016 Symposium

USIBD Level of Accuracy (LOA) Specification

The first event of USIBD's 2016 Symposium will be a training course in the use of USIBD's Level of Accuracy (LOA) Specification document.  This course will cover Version 2 of this document.  The training is followed by a testing to be certified in the use of the LOA V.2.  

This training will provide an overview of the document, and show how it will close the gap in your clients' expectations by increasing communication, ensuring the right use of available or chosen technology, and get the right results more easily, accurately and efficiently.  

Once certified, individuals can use their expertise in the LOA documents when discussing proposals with clients and colleagues.  Individuals who pass the test will be certified based upon Version2 of the documents they test for (there is no expiration date).

The current Version 1 of the LOA is the most downloaded document currently published by USIBD.  This document provides a flexible approach to specifying accuracy regardless of the size of a project, ultimately serving as a risk reduction tool for both the client and the service provider.  Version 1 of the LOA is available to download at no charge. 

This training will dovetail with the publication of Version 2 of the LOA.  Version 2 has been updated to include user-requested enhancements, comprehensive LOA suggestions, expanded reference frame specification, and now also includes a heritage overlay.

Training 1:45 - 2:45 pm., followed by a 15 min. break
