Dallas Fire and Water Restoration Training
Training for a SERVPRO employee begins on day one. Each of our employees immediately gets started on a specialized training program which includes practical field training and nightly course training. Everyone, regardless of position, must pass the SERVPRO Employee Certification Training courses. The series of courses covers all of our core competencies and prepares our technicians to handle every type of job they might face in Dallas as they work with the rest of their restoration crew and production managers.
We cover topics such as:
General SERVPRO Crew Training
This class is designed to teach our technicians what it means to be a SERVPRO technician. As the leader of the cleanup and restoration industry, we hold high standards for our technicians.

Carpet & Upholstery
Our technicians learn about different types of carpeting and how to effectively each type. They learn how to test different fabrics in upholstery and choose the most effective type of cleaning procedure.
Moving Services and Storage of Contents
Because our office provides moving and storage services, our technicians also learn how to become professional movers. Our technicians learn about inventory procedures and how to clean and restore all kinds of contents at our cleaning facility.
Once our employees have earned their restoration trainings, they are ready to move on to advanced training with the IICRC.
Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification IICRC
The IICRC is a non-profit organization for the cleaning and restoration industry. We are an IICRC Certified Firm.
The technicians that hold IICRC certifications are recognized by the restoration industry as having achieved a level of expertise where they understand and can perform the standard of care required for different kinds of restoration needs.
Our technicians quickly move into different training phases in order to get ready for IICRC training and certification. Our office currently holds the following certifications from the IICRC:
