Why Should You Take This IICRC Commercial Drying Specialist (CDS) course?
This IICRC Commercial Drying Specialist (CDS) course is designed to be an advanced drying concepts and management course. The focus of this curriculum is on commercial, industrial, institutional and complex residential structures.
During the course, students will become proficient in the analysis and anatomy of commercial structures, improve their inspection techniques, learn advanced psychrometric concepts, and administrate and manage a large drying project. The goal of this course is for the students to be proficient in drying a commercial or complex structure and understand the concepts of managing such a project.
Commercial drying projects frequently have many more potential hazards and safety risks that are not generally encountered on residential projects. These hazards may include (but not be limited to): higher voltages, confined spaces, energized machinery, hazardous chemicals, heavy equipment and forklifts. The CDS course is not intended to be a health and safety course, nor will it cover all of the potential hazards that may be encountered on commercial projects. It is required of participants to comply with all applicable local, state/provincial and national safety rules and regulations.
Class Prerequisite: You must have WRT (Water Damage Restoration) Certification. The participant is strongly advised to research and complete appropriate training programs (e.g. HST, OSHA 10-hour, Canadian HST) prior to participating in the CDS course.
IICRC Exam Fees: $65.00 for certification exam; retests will be $65.00. These fees are in addition to the registration fee, and are paid directly to IICRC. Please be sure attendees have the proper fees available when attending class.
