The purpose of this course is to provide disaster restoration supervisors and technicians with a convenient means for updating their knowledge on fire and smoke damage restoration concepts, principles and procedures at a nominal cost. This online course is intended to supplement training received in the IICRC-approved Fire & Smoke Restoration Technician (FSRT) certification course. This online course is divided into three programs each of which contains a number of sections or modules. 

In Part 1 of Fire and Smoke Restoration we discuss general fire restoration concepts including:

  • Definitions

  • Health and safety of occupants and workers

  • Job setting priorities and the technician responsibilities

  • Deodorizing agents, concepts, and principles

  • Deodorizing principles

  • Equipment and supplies

  • Fire restoration cleaning chemicals 

You will learn the continuing effects of contamination following a fire, from within minutes to damage occurring weeks after the loss.  We discuss restoration alternatives, how value is determined, depreciation, and the restorer’s responsibility. The idea is to put the value of professional restoration in perspective.  Learn to optimize operations, steer project management, and excel in customer relations.  This course will equip you with the tools to navigate insurance processes, adhere to legal requirements, and foster a safety-first culture.

This is a text-based course, with a short quiz at the end of each module.  Completing the course successfully earns 14 IICRC approved Continuing Education credit hours. Upon completion of this introduction to general fire restoration concepts, you will be well-prepared to go deeper with Fire and Smoke Restoration – Part 2: Structural Restoration.
