PuroClean’s new training center, the PuroClean Academy, is one of the most state-of-the-science facilities delivering the highest level of training in our industry. The PuroClean Academy consists of a new, high tech classroom with special features to facilitate distance learning opportunities such as interactive webinars; live, interactive video presentations; and other hands-on learning opportunities for the most effective adult education.
The PuroClean Academy also includes a state-of-the-science, IICRC-approved Applied Structural Drying (ASD) facility, we affectionately call our “Flood House”, which is the focal point of real-life practical instruction. One of only 17 in North America, this is the premier ASD facility in the nation and will further assist PuroClean in providing the very highest level of training available anywhere. The “House” was built strictly to code for southeast Florida – making it “hurricane proof,” even though it has been constructed inside of a built-to-code warehouse, yet it was designed to emulate any residence in all regions of the country.
There is also a specially designed Smoke/Soot Simulation Room, complete with cabinets, fixtures, etc., that will be used specifically for fire/smoke/soot remediation training.
And, finally, there is a separate Contents Cleaning Room, fully equipped with the latest equipment where students will be able to learn the very best approach to cleaning contents after fire, flood, or mold damage.
The PuroClean Academy allows all PuroClean Franchise Owners and their employees the opportunity to receive certifications from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the restoration industry's top standard-writing agency. Certifications will be available in: Applied Structural Drying, Water Damage Restoration, Fire and Smoke Restoration, Odor Control, Carpet Cleaning, and Carpet Color Repair. Other courses will also be provided in business and financial management, sales and marketing.
The PuroClean Academy is also available to insurance professionals across the country. We are proud to provide a unique opportunity for insurance companies to ensure that their adjusters and others in the industry are able to receive superb training to further improve their own ability to serve their customers.
