“Our registrants have asked to be kept abreast of IICRC activities—we will keep that as a top priority and open as many channels of communication as possible to accommodate the request,” said Lee Zimmerman, president of the IICRC.
Additional goals include the creation of advanced training categories and stronger relationships with industry associations. The IICRC has experienced a 250 percent growth in registrants since 1990. The new designations will provide registrants who already hold basic certification an opportunity to expand their knowledge and receive more advanced training.
“The IICRC also intends to work with other industry related organizations such as the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) and the American Furniture Manufacturers Association (AFMA) to promote common goals and strengthen the industry voice,” said Zimmerman.
