The institute provides quality education and training to experienced, qualified individuals; conveying the knowledge and skills necessary for performing inspections and remediation on structures that were built with defective drywall.
The Institute’s First Annual Conference, Training Seminar & Exhibition for Defective Drywall Inspection and Remediation will occur on October 24-27, 2010 at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina located at 1881 SE 17th Street Causeway in Ft.

BESI provides the most comprehensive training program for inspection and remediation of structures with Defective “Chinese” Drywall; graduates of these courses are given the opportunity to qualify their work for a 10-year warranty which provides coverage for up to $500,000. This warranty is offered by National Construction Warranty (NCW) and is the only Chinese Drywall (CDW) warranty available.

Professionals searching for accurate and relevant information about the Defective Drywall crisis may obtain recertification credits (RCs) while attending the two-day National Training & Certification Seminar on “Chinese” or Defective Drywall in America being held on October 26-27, 2010. This course is accepted by the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC) for sixteen (16) recertification credits (Registration #10092301).
The training program for Defective (Chinese) Drywall covers topics such as inspection/identification techniques, corrosion, cross-contamination of building materials and personal belongings, remediation methods, warranty program, scientific data, and removal of the stigma from having defective drywall. One of the advancements in diagnosing Defective “Chinese” Drywall is the handheld X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) analyzer which can be utilized by trained professionals in the field to provide immediate results. “It is the most reliable tool in the field for non-destructive analysis of drywall,” says Scott “Spiderman” Mulholland of U S Building Consultants.
