PCUCA: Take Another Look

May 9, 2003
The Professional Carpet and Upholstery Cleaners Association, based in the Denver Metro Area, continues to serve an 11-state region with an active schedule of IICRC-certification programs, informative “Business after Hours” and up-to-date information for growing and developing successful businesses in our industry.

In its broadening efforts to meet both the local and regional needs of the region, the board of directors has successfully launched “After 5” programs in the Colorado Springs area. These events take place on the second Thursday of the month. The Denver area “After 5” programs are on the third Thursday. Locations, topics and other information can be found on the PCUCA website at www.pcuca.org.

PCUCA is sponsoring an IICRC-Certified Applied Microbial (Mold) Remediation Tech-nician/Specialist Training Course in 2003. PCUCA is partnering with All Dry Water Damage Experts, who are providing the classroom and training facilities. The course is being taught by Restoration Consultants, and is scheduled for Sept. 17-20. The cost of the program to PCUCA members is $895; to non-members, $1,095.

PCUCA offers membership in the World Floor Covering Association. For $175 in membership fees, the WFCA provides $500 in scholarships to attend training programs and conventions. It is a very cost-effective means of providing training for yourself and your staff. Those funds can also go toward attendance at Connections 2003, the colossal industry conventions and trade show taking place in Las Vegas, Oct. 2-4. For more information on this event and related opportunities from vendors, see www.connections03.org. ICS
