GreenEDU Partners With National Institute of Decontamination Specialists

Piedmont, SC- Recently, GreenEDU announced a strategic partnership with the National Institute of Decontamination Specialists (NIDS), a South Carolina based training center. NIDS is a decontamination training center dedicated to the success of its students, striving to create a positive experience. Additionally, they provide lunch free of charge to all of their students for every day of training. They provide hands-on training for the clean up of crime scenes, meth labs, and other biohazard challenges by using Hollywood-type sets so that students are able to interact with the environment and understand what a real hazardous situation may look like. Students interact with the set while being instructed and aided by an "actor," giving students realistic, hands-on training. They are affiliated with several accredited industries, such as IICRC, the American BioRecovery Association, and the Restoration Industry Association.

NIDS is currently offering Meth Lab and Tear Gas Decontamination training and Crime and Trauma Scene Bio-Recovery training in Piedmont, South Carolina.
