  5. Who Are We?

Leading the nation's training in flood restoration, fire restoration and mould remediation for 35 years.

Historically we have provided courses that teach practical application of current best practices from around the World, of “after the event” restoration procedures, however the ‘flood’ industry has evolved and now there is a need to cover before the event, during the event and post-flood topics, to build a truly resilient community.

We built Europe’s first flood house back in 2001, regularly flooding and drying back down the same building within our hands-on training courses for 20+ years and now we are excited to launch at our new training centre in Wallingford with our brand new flood house facility, in partnership with the prestigious HR Wallingford; the global leaders and independent experts in how to live and work sustainably with water, with world-class physical modelling facilities to educate, investigate and innovate across the marine and coastal sectors.

As well as developing professionals in their property restoration and cleaning careers, the National Flood School also offers training and professional development to insurance professionals, including Loss Adjusters and Claims Handlers with industry leading training from the global organisation the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and where the IICRC certification syllabuses do not cover aspects of the restoration industry, the National Flood School develops their own courses for restoration personnel and the wider roles within it and will endeavor to create a bespoke course tailored to the needs of the client when the need arises using their vast connections and experience.

The National Flood School is a champion and leader of industry standards and has been invited to contribute to many BSI standards over the years and been finalist in the British Insurance Awards a number of times for innovations in service to the insurance industry.

Our consultancy services are also used widely by insurers, loss adjusters, restorers and home owners, providing valuable and timely advice. Complex claims are often referred to our consultants nationwide for their expert opinion and guidance.

We are working towards more cohesion throughout the industry and through our learning and connections we are in the continual pursuit of excellence.
