Al Brown's Insurance Industry career started in 1979, shortly after receiving his Diploma of Technology from British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT). Al's focus was in the property restoration field, working directly with Insurance Company Adjusters, Independent Adjusters & Property Managers throughout the Lower Mainland. During his tenure with On Side Developments, he obtained his CR designation in 1993 with Association of Specialty Cleaning and Restoration (ASCR) & Restoration Industry Association (RIA). Later he earned his Water Damage Restoration (WRT), Applied Structural Drying (ASD) & Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT) designations through Institute of Inspection Cleaning & Restoration (IICRC).
