About us

The quality of training you get matters

In this competitive industry, having a higher-level of expertise in restoration and cleaning will set you apart from your competitors.


ARK Education courses are designed to give you a rich understanding of not only the process to restore after a disaster, but the nuances of the science that dictate what is needed to restore a home back to the way it was before an incident. As a business owner Chris has unique insights ranging on how to document the workflow to even how to communicate with the customer. Most importantly you leave well prepared to take the IICRC exam.

You don’t have to travel, be away from your family for an extended time and jump through the hoops usually required to attend an in-person course.


Imagine walking away qualified and ready for the exam after taking the online training from the comfort of your home or in the conference room. 

As an added bonus ...
