COMBO: (5 day course) Save $150 by taking the "Combo" Class which combines WRT and ASD Classes but instead of 6 days of training if taken separately, we have combined them into a single 5 day class. This not only saves $150 in tuition but also saves on lodging and an entire work day. The advantage of the combo class over taking the classes separate is not just the time savings but it also allows the student to spend more time doing hands on application. 

With their being two (2) courses, there are in turn two (2) IICRC certification examinations that you will qualify to take.  The WRT certification exam is taken on day 4.  The ASD certification exam is taken on day 5.

The Water Damage Restoration Technician course is designed to teach restoration personnel that perform remediation work to give them a better concept of water damage, it’s effects and techniques for drying of structures. This course will give residential and commercial maintenance personnel the background to understand the procedures necessary to deal with water losses, sewer back flows, and contamination such as mold.


The Applied Structural Drying course distinguishes restorers who have completed an intensive hands-on course in how to dry complete structures. The students actually "apply" new drying techniques as they learn them.  If you like hands on learning this class is for you. In this class you will receive both hands on and classroom lecture using all the latest in drying technology.

Learn how to:
  • extract properly using surface, sub surface, and weighted extraction tools
  • dry in place, partial float and other applications
  • directed heat application
  • proper equipment placement
  • use meters to give you the information you need
  • dry hardwood flooring
  • dry ceramic tile
  • dry cabinetry with no need for removal
  • dry drywall and insulation without need for demolition
  • use structural cavity drying systems
  • Desiccant and LGR use
  • much more
If you are ready to take your business to the next level or just need an update on new technology this class is for you.
