Pardon our boasting for just a moment, but in order to be the best, you’ve got to train like the best, right? Aside from sounding like an Army recruitment commercial, Woodard takes its restoration training and certification program very seriously. After all, training is a critical factor in the development of knowledge, as well as the professional growth of our team, so we strive to keep our service levels top-notch. Training to be the Best We offer close to 20 in-house courses and bring in outside experts from key trade associations to train and certify our staff in nearly 50 other subjects. At last count, our team held nearly 300 professional cleaning and restoration accreditation’s, including certification restoration technician, applied odor control, and applied microbial remediation. The next time you place a call to Woodard, rest assured in knowing that each and every one of our technicians has been carefully and thoroughly trained to take excellent care of you, as well as your needs; the way we see it, there’s no other choice. In the restoration industry, the top-level professional certification that can be earned is the title of “Certified Restorer” – and there are only about 350 people with this level of knowledge working worldwide. We are so fortunate to have two of these individuals on staff here at Woodard!
