What is the IICRC? What is WRT Certification?

If you’re new to the restoration industry, acronyms like IICRC and WRT might be unfamiliar to you. So what do they mean?

IICRC stands for the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification. The IICRC is a non-profit global organisation that helps to shape the standards, credentials and certifications that impact the inspection, cleaning and restoration industries. The IICRC has more than 49,000 active Certified Technicians and more than 6,500 Certified Firms around the world.

WRT stands for Water Damage Restoration Technician. WRT certification is one of many certifications defined by the IICRC and offered through approved schools like Coach8. People who have achieved WRT certification are recognised as professionals in remediation work who understand water damage and techniques for drying structures. Completing a WRT course is a common foundation for people starting their IICRC certification journey.
