We would like to congratulate Marco Garcia for successfully completing the fire restoration 151 class with flying colors. He is now certified in fire and smoke restoration technology.
According to the IICRC: In this class, the registrant will learn how to properly approach the technical side of the job. Students will be taught the best available techniques for removing damage caused by fire and will learn how to manage the job site while working. Also, the instructor will walk the registrant through assessing and pricing the work for the customer beforehand, ensuring that the professional is fairly compensated for their duties. This class is taught over two days, for a total of 14 hours. The IICRC does not conduct classes itself, but approves schools and instructors to teach the classes — usually long-time registrants with many years of experience in the course area. This ensures that all techniques and technology used are relevant to the field at the time the course is taught. A professional who wants to take a smoke restoration course through the IICRC can likely find an instructor in their area, because they are spread throughout North America.
