The American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC) will offer a third-party accredited professional certification in restorative and structural drying.

In August 2010, ACAC assembled a certification steering committee to explore the need for an accredited structural drying certification and make recommendations for its development. The steering committee included representatives from the Restoration Industry Association (RIA), who provided welcome expertise.

The committee has now completed its work, having identified industry stakeholders, recommended exam reference texts and established eligibility guidelines for the structural drying certification.

An ACAC certification board will now administer the program, which will available to applicants by year’s end.
