IICRC Classes

 

Required "Inputs" for Technicians
 
 

1. IICRC Classes to learn current "Standards" of the Industry

2. Product or equipment specific non IICRC classes

3. Experience

4. On-the-job-training of industry and Company Standards and procedures, to ensure all guidelines have been taught and continue to be followed.

 

After following and maintaining the above three principles, you have an educated and valuable technician.

 

IICRC Classes

 

The IICRC lays out accepted procedures and guidelines for each subject, that is taught. Books that contain this information are called “Standards”. These are the justification for what we do in each area.

 

IICRC classes teach the information and Certifications, awarded after testing, show you have learned it.
