IEHA and WoolSafe begin educational partnership
December 10, 2010
The International Executive Housekeepers Association and
WoolSafe North America have announced an educational partnership to provide
IEHA members with advanced training in the care of wool carpet and furnishings.
The IEHA Board of Directors recently approved the WoolSafe
Fabric Care Specialist online training course to provide IEHA members with
education in the cleaning and maintenance of wool, and ultimately recognition
as WoolSafe Fabric Care Specialists.
“This initiative enables us to take our IEHA Professional
Education Credentialing Program curriculum to an even higher level by providing
advanced training in the care of wool textiles,” says Beth Risinger, CEO and
executive director of IEHA. “Offering our members professional credentialing as
WoolSafe Fabric Care Specialists gives them an additional way to showcase their
expertise while ensuring the highest standard of care for wool in the upscale
hospitality and executive environments they service.” www.ieha.org
