Contents Science & Theory is a two-day program where a restoration professional can gain and hone expertise in the best practices of contents restoration due to fire, smoke, flood or disaster.  This interactive and hands on course is a prerequisite for those pursuing their advanced certifications and geared towards the more experienced restoration trainer, estimator or supervisor, covering intermediate to advanced restoration and theory.  This courses includes a refresher on the basics of contents cleaning and deodorizing and wood restoring and refinishing before branching into the niche markets of textiles, electronics and art. Take your skills beyond period furniture identification and learn how to translate that knowledge into building business practices focused on safe and effective contents restorations.
