This online course is intended to supplement training received in the IICRC-approved Water Restoration Technician (WRT) and Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT) certification courses.

You will learn the difference between anti-microbials, biocides and disinfectants and when it is appropriate to use each.  Additionally, the course will introduce learners to microbiology and emphasize the importance of health and safety practices in the field.
