The WoolSafe Course now available online

February 3, 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 - under the name CAMPES - the Carpet Maintenance Products Evaluation Scheme by the International Wool Secretariat (IWS) - the WOOLSAFE Organization launched an accreditation program for professional carpet cleaners in October of 1998.  The WOOLSAF® Certified Operators program was created in response to demand from the cleaning and carpet manufacturing industries.
