Certifications

The IICRC continuing education program seeks to encourage registrants to actively participate in their industry through conventions, workshops and specialized training with continuing education and by sharing knowledge with others in the industry. Recognizing that not all registrants can attend courses in-person, a list of approved distance and online learning courses are available for continuing education credits (CECs).

Inspectors

Due to rapid changes in fiber, yarn, dye, manufacturing, finishing and related technologies, IICRC-certified inspectors must attain 14 hours of continuing education credits every two years.

Cleaning and Restoration Technicians

IICRC-certified cleaning and restoration technicians face many changes in their field and require 14 hours every four years.

Advanced Designations

Those registrants achieving the advanced designations of Master Textile Cleaner (MTC), Master Fire and Smoke Restorer (MSR) or Master Water Restorer (MWR) will be required to attain 14 hours of continuing education every two years.

Note: there are no Health and Safety Technician (HST) equivalents in Canada, Australia or New Zealand** Definition of Applied Microbial Remediation Specialist (AMRS): One year of active IICRC certification as an Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT); plus Health and Safety Technician (HST) certification or approved equivalent, and 10 verifiable microbial remediation jobs.

    WHAT IS AN APPROVED SCHOOL?
