THE IICRC; WHY WE SHOULD ALL CARE
Cleaners and Restorers, as well as customers, should care about the IICRC.
Education is “part” of the process. It’s absolutely necessary. As someone who learned much, early in my career, from the “School of Hard Knocks”, I can tell you, “It’s not a fun way to learn!” If I had to do it again, from the beginning, I would spend more time learning from those who have already been there. Yes…..experience is necessary, but knowing the right thing to do, is critical for “good” experience.
A major source of proven education, compiled by people who have, "been there, done that", is The International Institute of Cleaning and Restoration Certification (the IICRC), There are more than 53,000 certified technicians. and more than 6,000 Certified Firms around the world.
That’s 40 years of experience, trial and error and documented proof available to you. Why learn the hard way when it’s been done, already? It’s been arranged in great books that have the most recent knowledge accepted by the industry, known as “Standards” for what we do. They are upgraded by hundreds of industry professionals (which can include you, if you want) every few years.The S500, for water restoration, has been, consistently, upgraded undergoing some major changes in outlook.
So let’s say you’ve taken advantage of this accumulation of “great stuff” and become Certified. Now what? No-one ever asked me if I was certified. continue

Everything I've done in my
career, prepared me to be an
instructor. My first 20 years
in the industry, it was never
my goal to be one. I'm glad
it turned out this way.
