Individuals entering the industry or wishing to develop a better understanding of basic damage management protocols and procedures. Particularly relevant to those aiming to sit the BDMA Technician examination in order to gain professional qualification and accreditation as a BDMA Technician.


The course aims to provide delegates with a basic knowledge of water damage management procedures and best practice in-line with the BDMA Standards. It is anticipated that completion of the course, combined with further study of the BDMA Training Module, the BDMA Standards and the relevant Examination Syllabus, will equip students with sufficient knowledge to competently deliver basic damage management solutions and be in a position to better understand the water section of the BDMA Technician examination if they wish to progress to accreditation as a BDMA Technician.


In addition to an overview of the generic procedures followed by professional damage management practitioners when dealing with water and flood damage, the course will cover:

Measuring moisture in building materials, accurately to avoid extended drying periods

Correctly identifying the most efficient drying systems for each loss.

Understanding how to classify water incidents to help make better decisions

How drying systems can be used to significantly reduce the scope of building work

Which materials and building designs affect drying, and how they can be dealt with

Ways to control indemnity spend in general and improve the customer’s experience

Identifying common building faults that may hinder your drying protocols

Being able to better understand psychrometrics and how this applies to day to day water losses.


Please note that this is a practical course and dress accordingly.

Please bring your own moisture meter for use during the course.  If you do not have one, different types of meters will be available to you during the training.

As this is a generic course with no affiliation to any specific manufacturer, we want you to gain the most knowledge of the equipment you own.
