Last week, I had the opportunity to sit in on a special Restoration Services Technician Training class at SunGlo Services (Novi, MI), part of an eight-week program made possible by the Detroit Workforce Development Department (DWDD) and Independent Mitigation and Cleaning/Conservation (IMACC) to teach about 40 qualifying Detroiters (ages 18-21) about the emergency restoration services industry.

The goal of the program is to provide students with the basic skills so that they’re able to secure an entry-level position in the field upon its conclusion, should they choose to enter the said field. In fact, students who complete the program receive certifications in water restoration, smoke and fire restoration, Xactimate and lead safety.

Stayed tuned to R&R for more on this program.
