Water Damage Restoration Technician/Applied Structural Drying (WRT/ASD) Combination

Water Damage Restoration Technician/Applied Structural Drying (WRT/ASD) Combo Houston – Mon, Nov 9 2020 – Fri, Nov 13 2020


This course combines the information taught in both the Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT) and Applied Structural Drying (ASD) courses (see course descriptions for more details). It must be attended in its entirety along with passing both WRT and ASD exams during that same five-day period. If any portion of the course and exam are not completed, the student is required to re-attend the entire five-day course to receive both certifications.
