The Certified Decontamination Association (CDA) is a for-profit training organization that was created through collaboration between Mike Rowzée and Michael Leavitt as they identified the huge void in the environmental decontamination and sampling marketplace. Their initial goals were simple, “We wanted to provide the best certification training possible as we teach other environmental professionals how to decontaminate and take lab samples," shared Mike Rowzée.
Looking at the work history resume’s of both Mike Rowzée and Michael Leavitt, you can see that together they bring together all of the life experience needed to make a success of the CDA. Michael Leavitt explained, “The initial idea was to put together two online trainings for the betterment of the environmental decontamination industry. But as we brainstormed and reflected back upon Mike’s military decontamination background and curriculum development, combined with my home inspection and testing background, website interface expertise, and long time presenter and trainer, it was obvious that we needed to think bigger. And from the brainstorming sessions, the Certified Decontamination Association was born.”
