The classes listed below (except the free one) are intended to expand upon material learned in IICRC and NWFA courses. Completion of each class earns the student 1 or 2 CEC credits for IICRC certifications in all categories. Completion of the wood-related classes earns CECs for IICRC OR NWFA. It is not possible to use these classes to earn an IICRC certification. I will report your CECs to the appropriate agency. If you want to do it yourself, download the completion certificate at the end of the course and send it with your renewal.

Cleaning Science
Cleaning science examines the characteristics of soil, detergency and pH as it relates to carpet cleaning and cleaning in general.

Carpet Construction
Carpet Construction examines carpet construction including a variety of woven construction types.

Construcción de la Alfombra
La limpieza eficaz de alfombra requiere una cierta comprensión de la construcción de la alfombra, los forros o apoyos, los estilos de hilo de la cara y las fibras que hacen la alfombra. En este curso, nos concentraremos en los componentes de la alfombra y cómo se relacionan con la limpieza.

FREE SAMPLER COURSE
Bits and pieces of the carpet related courses are thrown together here to give you a FREE preview of what it is like to go through one of our courses. This does provide an excellent overview of our course but, the resulting mismash does not follow a logical theme. In other words, this is alot like our real courses except that the real courses actually make sense. Enjoy it for what it is. There are some educational bits and some fun bits and some that are both. Let us know what you think. Ron and Libby
