Instructor: Joe Dobbins
The IICRC-approved Applied Structural Drying (ASD) course is designed to teach the effective, efficient and timely drying of water-damaged structures and contents, using comprehensive classroom and hands-on training, in order to facilitate appropriate decision making within a restorative drying environment.
This training is performed with 'hands-on' in a flooded house with the focus placed on proper technique of extraction, setting up equipment, monitoring the drying process, and completion of the job.
Our teachers have in the field experience and have owned their own restoration companies. With this experience comes their knowledge and the ability to relate to your trials and everyday experiences you may face. This affords you the opportunity to skip costly learning curves and benefit from their years of hard work.
The flood house that you will be working in has an easily accessible dirt floor crawlspace. Unlike working in a warehouse or manufactured home, this home was built using construction techniques and materials you are expected to restore on a daily basis. Nearly 40% of the structure is covered with hard surface flooring such as travertine, ceramic tile, custom finished hardwood flooring and pre-finished hardwood. There are 9 different types of wall board to give you a depth of experience you won't find elsewhere. Cost $1,295
