Feb 2015 International Updates

International Office Updates

IICRC Asia Pacific
IICRC Asia Pacific is looking forward to a very busy 2015. The team is scheduled to attend five trade shows throughout Australia, with events being held in Melbourne, Perth and the Gold Coast. The first event is to be held in April in Melbourne – keep an eye out for more details soon. These events are a good opportunity for IICRC certified technicians to earn CEC points; if you are unsure of your CEC status, we encourage you to contact the office on 1300 307 751.

IICRC Asia Pacific would like to welcome our newest Certified Firms to the program – The Mould Doctor, Decker Commercial Cleaning and Hot Cleaning Services from Australia, and Avalon Services from Singapore.

The office is also developing new marketing materials for our local Certified Firms to use when visiting their customers to highlight the benefits of using IICRC Certified Firms and technicians. We believe that this will be a powerful sales tool for our firms to add to their marketing efforts.

IICRC Europe
We have been working hard to continue the growth and development of the IICRC in Europe and are delighted to report that we ended 2014 with a noticeable increase in the amount of Certified Firm applications and new registrants. There was also an upswing in the number of candidates attending IICRC exams and achieving a high pass rate. We anticipate that this is a direct result of our efforts to promote and advertise the benefits that being an IICRC member can bring.

Last December, we held a meeting to update our key stakeholders on our progress and plans for the future. The meeting provided an open forum to discuss a number of issues and we were pleased that a number of positive outcomes were reached. We are planning on holding the next meeting after The Cleaning Show 2015 which is taking place in London on the 10th – 12th March but will confirm details shortly. If you are planning on attending the show, please come over to our stand (C16) to say hi and collect your CECs for attending!

We are looking forward to a productive and successful 2015 and aim to continue developing the European branch of the IICRC to maximise the membership benefits for our registrants.

Last month, twelve of us from Hokkaido, Yokohama, Chiba and Aichi of Japan travelled to Las Vegas to visit the IICRC Global Resource Center (GRC) and attend the International Surface Event that was held from Jan. 21 – 26th. We appreciate the GRC tour we received from IICRC chairman Tony.
