Meth Awareness Training

This course will aid the attendees by getting a better understanding of items/actions commonly associated with meth production and/or meth use. They will also gain an understanding of the “contractor”side of meth labs/contamination as an understanding of knowing what contractors “should” be doing. Lastly they will learn why communities, managers and company representatives should be on the lookout for meth signs and understand why they need to be addressed quickly and properly (specifically as they relate to long term liabilities and tenant health/safety).

Register for this course to learn about:

  • Identification / awareness of meth use and/or cooking
  • What the “process” is after a meth lab is seized (proper assessment, remediation and post remediation testing)
  • Considerations where there has not been a bust, but there is reason to believe that a resident is using and/or making drugs.
  • Discussion of the liabilities associated with meth contamination and why awareness is so important.
  • A review of cost-saving ideas to limit potential exposures without breaking the bank.

Lisa Turner, Property Manager, Autumn Ridge Apartments
I have been in the apartment industry since 2008 and loved it the moment I started. The IAA is as strong as its members, so it is always great to recruit and meet new members. I am a firm believer in networking; getting to know, like, and trust others. On top of the networking opportunities, the IAA offers exceptional and important classes.
Alissa Morlan, Regional Manager, Chair, IAA: Lafayette, HI Management
As a team, we felt like we were a little slow in terms of how long it took us to join IAA, but looking back are so glad we did. It was one of the best decisions we made not just because it put us in front of our target audience on a monthly basis, but because we have been able give back and be active members of the industry. Sitting on committees, attending events / meetings, and diving in to serve and make an impact where we can has been so rewarding for all of us.
