Details of the program:

  1. Simply purchase and download the program, including the 48-page instruction manual and two slide presentations.
  2. Study the training manual in detail and review the slides.
  3. Establish a training schedule that works for you. Arrange for a minimum of 1 hour of hands-on cleaning up to several days with procedures with equipment and supplies.
  4. Note: individuals may elect to study the program alone.
  5. Consider the value of purchasing the IICRC test and diploma for $25 per student. If your budget does not allow the purchase of several hundred tests and diplomas consider a non-IICRC $5 test and certificate of completion or any mixture thereof.
  6. Agree to testing requirements of not altering the class materials, providing a safe classroom environment, a suitable learning environment, support a code of ethics including dignity and respect for all students, follow class curriculum as approved by IICRC and agree to confidentiality and integrity in administering all tests.
  7. Present the class materials. Have someone read each slide and have a supervisor available to answer any questions by sharing materials from the training booklet.

Currently this carpet care training program is not available for purchase for those who would resell the materials. In other words, any and all instructors who want to present the program to others outside their own organization must first become an approved IICRC instructor with our school.
