Life-long learning is Roy's passion. He has finished most of the Ontario Building Code courses. In the summer
of 2002, he went back to York University to seek knowledge in Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) and obtained a
Certificate as a result. He is a certified mediator.
During the fall of 2004, Roy pursued his passion of continuing education in Infrared Thermography, and became
a certified Level 1 Infrared thermographer. He has now updated to Level 2, and with this certification, he can provide infrared scanning on any
building-related, diagnostic and preventive maintenance problems.
In his spare time, Roy continues to update himself by teaching part-time at a local college, and coaching about the
inspection business to newcomers.
Currently, he is serving on a number of boards to contribute what he has learned from the industry.
