“What if you train them and they just leave?”
“What if you DON’T train them and they STAY?”
Ahhh, the eternal employer conundrum…for which there seems to be no definitive answer…HOWEVER, over and over again, training has proven to be the way to go!
“There is no time that an employer devotes to his business
more profitable to the company
time he takes to improve the training of his employees.”
Continuing with that sound advice, studies show that hands-on training is an extremely successful way to teach water removal and drying procedures. The IICRC recognized this and established the WRT/ASD Combo Course (Water Restoration Technician / Applied Structural Drying). This full week course teaches restoration personnel the concepts and effects of water damage. Then the class continues as the students observe and use the equipment in an actual flooded building situation. This invaluable hands-on, real world experience, along with the use of state-of-the-art equipment, will allow your technicians to make informed decisions on the best tools to use for each situation.
Avoid the lost customers, costly mistakes, lost time and increase in miscellaneous expenses, due to untrained employees. Remember, OVR is an IICRC Certified Training Center!
