Record number of IICRC Registrants visit IICRC booth at SURFACES

VANCOUVER, Wash. -- More than 125 IICRC-Certified Inspector and Cleaner registrants--a record number--visited the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification booth at Surfaces 2002, the global floor covering marketplace, and inquired about advanced and additional training certifications. By signing the booth roster, they received two continuing education credits (CECs) for attending the trade show.

Additionally, several hundred more Surfaces attendees received IICRC informational brochures. Representatives from the Executive Committee, Marketing Committee and IICRC Administration staffed the IICRC booth.

IICRC used the tradeshow to communicate and reconfirm its commitment to the inspection, cleaning and restoration industry. IICRC staffers also spoke with representatives from 3-M, Bissell, Carpet Cushion Council, SB Latex Council, CRI, DuPont, ServiceMaster, Bane Clean, Host/Von Schrader, Shaw Industries, Mannington, Tile Council of America, and other floor covering organizations during the three day show. Additionally, the IICRC Executive Committee held a semi-annual meeting following Surfaces.

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) (www.iicrc.org) is the certification registry that develops and monitors educational programs and standards for the inspection, cleaning and restoration industry. Founded in 1972, IICRC is the largest non-profit registry of inspectors, cleaners and restorers serving the U.S., Canada, Great Britain and Australia. IICRC is owned and controlled by 16 regional and international industry trade associations. IICRC does not own schools, employ instructors, produce training materials or promote specific product brands, cleaning methods or systems. It approves schools and instructors that meet the criteria established by the IICRC. IICRC also serves as a consumer referral source for certified firms, technicians and inspectors.
