Quality Programs. Quality Training. Quality Results.

Your Restoration Coach divides its programs into seven distinct categories (called “Tracks”) based on the type of training that is needed. All courses, workshops, and training is geared specifically towards helping Disaster Restoration and Remediation Contractors develop their talents and staff. 

These Tracks include:

  • CEC Training (IICRC & RIA CEC approved) 
  • IICRC Certified Training 
  • Technical Training
  • Sales & Marketing Training
  • Leadership & Management Training
  • Customer Service Training
  • Xactimate & Software Training

All programs range in duration from 1 to 52 hours.  They are coordinated to be done over short periods of time or multiple courses can be bundled together for various employees of a contracting firm and scheduled out over a quarter or up to a year. 

Many of our courses help staff of restoration and remediation firms qualify for continuing education credits needed by various organizations, such as the IICRC and RIA. 

Your Restoration Coach also offers highly specialized, tailored training to meet the specific needs of our Contractor clients.

While most training programs are hosted and presented at your location, there are some courses that can be taken remotely through video conferencing (Zoom). We anticipate having an online learning platform in the future as well.

Canada Jobs Grant

Your Restoration Coach is becoming a recognized trainer for the Canada Jobs Grant programs that are administered separately, by each Province. This Federal/Provincial Government program is targeted to private sector and non-profit employers, and provides a financial contribution to organizations (companies, industry associations, etc.) to help them train existing and new employees. 

There is an annual maximum government contribution for each employee trained and for the company. The goal of the program is to increase labour force participation and to help develop the skills necessary to find and keep meaningful and long term employment and to encourage employer involvement in training to ensure that skills are aligned to job opportunities.
