Class Description

(Prerequisites:  IICRC Certification in WRT) Special note to Participants: Commercial Drying projects frequently have many more potential hazards and safety risks that are generally encountered on residential projects.  These hazards may include but not limited to higher voltages, confined spaces, energized machinery, hazardous chemicals, heavy equipment and forklifts.  The CDS course is not intended to be a health and safety course, nor will it cover all of the potential hazards that may be encountered on commercial projects.  It is required of participants to comply with all applicable local, state/providencial and national rules and regulations.  The participant is strongly advised to research and complete appropriate training programs (e.g. HST, OSHA 10-Hour, Canadian HST) prior to participating in the CDS course.  The Commercial Drying Specialist course teaches damage inspection and evaluation, work flow management, process administration and technical methods of effective and timely drying of commercial, industrial, institutional and complex residential water-damaged structures, systems, and furniture, fixtures and equipment (FFE).  Resources for the course include: the current ANSI/IICRC S500 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration, reference, media, scientific, technical and industry resources.
