 NORMI Water Classes for Water Restoration Technicians

Water ClassesBreaking the tradition of IICRC trainings from the S-500, these courses are being offered to help small businesses to become successful providing the latest technical procedures tested in class, by the students, intertwined with successful small business practice.

Who Should Take This Class?

  • Anyone interested in knowing more about mold or water damage restoration.
  • Technicians and owners who want to become more successful by separating themselves from the competition
  • Any technician who wants to know more about equipment, how it works and what works best
  • Technicians who want more extensive hands-on training to understand which equipment actually works and which is "hype".
  • Professionals interested in learning more about drying techniques without the influence of manufacturers pushing equipment that does not work well in the "real world".


"NORMI is interested in expanding the knowledge of technicians who may have already been trained in the field of water restoration, as well as those who are new to the industry. The science of water damage and restoration is constantly changing and we want to make sure that those who are actually doing or supervising the work fully understand the newest equipment and techniques available to make their projects more profitable and the solutions more effective." D. Douglas Hoffman, Executive Director of NORMI
