The first IICRC Commercial Drying Specialist Course in the U.S. was held at Reets Drying Academy in Atlanta, Ga., Jan. 11-15.  Students learned how to manage, document, and handle large water losses in order to expand their knowledge of their industry. The course covered a multitude of material to help water restorers with the challenges they will face when they move from handling residential losses to commercial.

“Until this point there wasn’t a standardized course offered from the IICRC covering the details of large losses from start to finish,” said Jeremy Reets, founder of Reets Drying Academy. “The students were blown away by the opportunity to actually be in a facility, put their hands on the blueprints, and build a strategy for drying a multi-story commercial loss.”
