The WoolSafe course now available on-line

March 8, 2009

The IICRC recently approved the WoolSafe Fabric Care Specialist On-Line Training Course for two IICRC CECs.

According to Ruth Travis, WoolSafe’s North American director, “Previously the course was only offered in a face-to-face format with limited availability to professional cleaners interested in learning more about wool and high-value wool carpet and rug cleaning.  Now students throughout the world will have the opportunity to choose to attend a course in person or study on-line.”

Originally established in 1991 by the International Wool Secretariat (the Wool Bureau in North America) the WOOLSAFE Organization launched an accreditation program for professional carpet cleaners in October of 1998.
