Paul Davis Restoration, a national franchise company providing fire, water and mold damage restoration services services for residential and commercial properties, has opened its new national training center in Jacksonville, Fla.
The company’s former training facility was also located in Jacksonville.
The center features most categories of approved certification courses from The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) including emergency fire and water damage mitigation, structural clean up, fire and smoke restoration, water damage restoration, odor control and contents cleaning and restoration.
The company constructed two large theater-style classrooms at the new facility with state-of-the-art, audio visual systems.
The centerpiece of the new national training center is the “flood” house training module – a full-scale, fully-functional residential structure built within the new facility. The 1,700 square foot home has a full size bedroom, living room, kitchen, dining area and bathroom. It also includes furniture, appliances, a variety of flooring types, home décor and electronics.
The flood house includes space for classroom activities that are designed to give students a real life training experience while learning proper mitigation and restoration techniques. In accordance with IICRC specifications, the house is designed to be completely flooded with thousands of gallons of water under controlled circumstances as part of the IICRC Applied Structural Drying (ASD) course and other related courses.
