Nov. 11, 2011 - PRLog -- Experts from the National Flood School are running a three-day Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) Water Restoration Technician course this month.

At the end of the programme, successful students gain the IICRC’s Water Restoration Technician qualification – evidence of extensive specialised knowledge that will help builders, contractors and restorers bring in more business restoring water-damaged properties.
The course focuses on the theory behind the practice, concentrating largely on Psychrometry – the ‘science of drying.’

Lectures, discussions and video are used to cover topics such as the latest equipment, safety, water extraction procedures, structural drying, chemicals and dealing with sewage.

Attendees will also learn everything they need to start dealing with water damage claims.

Chris Netherton, Managing Director of the National Flood School, said: “Water damage costs the insurance industry billions of pounds, and the volume of claims means there is high demand for contractors with the right skills.

“Using a restorer with an internationally-recognised IICRC Water Restoration Technician qualification saves the industry money because properties are dried out more quickly and effectively and it helps improve customer service.

“That means enrolling on an IICRC Water Restoration Course at the National Flood School is an opportunity for contractors to significantly increase their income.”

The course is being delivered at the National Flood School’s headquarters in Farnham, Surrey, between November 22 and November 24.
