Certification helps you stay competitive and grow your business. Just as certified accountants, plumbers and mechanics project a higher level of competency in their fields, and just as members of the American Medical Association and American Bar Association set themselves apart through training, experience and comprehensive examination — IICRC certification helps to immediately identify the cleaning, restoration and inspection industry’s most skilled and dedicated technicians and businesses.
Keeping up with the latest techniques and technologies not only helps you stay competitive, it’s also one of the best ways to motivate and retain employees. Education and training are key to a meaningful work experience; professional advancement is key to job satisfaction; and educated, well-trained, satisfied employees are the key to satisfied customers.
An IICRC Certified Firm must first employ one or more IICRC Certified Technicians, and apply with the IICRC to become a Certified Firm. Certified Firms are the only cleaning, restoration and inspection companies listed in the IICRC locator. They also promise to adhere to the IICRC Code of Ethics, be current in their business insurance and licensee requirements, and can proudly display the IICRC logo on their company website and vehicles.

WHAT ARE CERTIFICATION CLASSES?
Certification classes are classes taught by an approved Instructor or School. Each class taught varies from one day to five days, depending on course content and requirements. Online learning is also available in select categories for those who cannot attend a class.
As a certifying and standards-setting body, the IICRC owns no schools and has no instructors on staff. Rather, to fulfill its education commitment, the IICRC approves schools and instructors that apply to and meet the criteria set forth by the board of directors.
The IICRC does not provide recommendations for any approved instructor, rather, any individual seeking to attend a class is required to contact an approved instructor from the directory provided for any inquires related to their services.
