Prochem Europe announces IICRC course accreditation approval for CEC
Prochem Europe tells us that all its training courses are now accepted by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) as Continuous Education Credit (CEC) courses.
The IICRC is a US based standards and certification body for the cleaning & restoration industry and has a global presence with offices in the UK, Australia and Japan.
There are currently over 59,000 IICRC certified registrants worldwide, of which approximately 600 are in the UK who can now add Prochem, not only as one of the UK's primary training organisations for carpet and upholstery cleaning professionals, but also as one which can provide the credits needed to help maintain IICRC accreditation if they are following the IICRC certification program.
Prochem courses included as IICRC CEC courses include:
- The C1 - One-day carpet cleaning course (7 IICRC CECs)
- The C2 - Two-day carpet cleaning course (14 IICRC CECs)
- The U1 - One-day upholstery cleaning course (7 IICRC CECs)
- The HF1 - One-day hard floor cleaning course (6 IICRC CECs)
- The SR1 - One-day stain removal course (7 IICRC CECs)
- The WS1 - WoolSafe Fibre Care Specialist course (This course is hosted by Prochem on behalf of The WoolSafe Organisation) (7 IICRC CECs).
The IICRC is a non-profit organisation supported in the UK by the National Carpet Cleaners Association. The NCCA is one of many trade associations who are shareholders of the IICRC and have a seat on the board of directors.
IICRC certified registrants require 14 CECs every four years to retain their IICRC certification, unless they are designated 'Master Textile Cleaner', 'Master Water (damage) Restorer' or 'Master Fire & Smoke (damage) Restorer'. These designations require 14 CECs every two years. One CEC is earned for each hour of training. IICRC CECs can only be earned via pre-approved IICRC events. All Prochem courses now earn IICRC CECs.
