Global Resource Center Renovations

Major renovations are currently underway at the IICRC’s Global Resource Center in Las Vegas - both inside and outside of the building. The main meeting room is being expanded to more than 3,000 square feet to allow for future symposiums and certification council meetings. The facility changes will also allow for a separate space for training classes, a future museum and an industry hall of fame. For further information on the renovations or how you can use this space, please contact us at


IICRC is moving ahead with great enthusiasm with many new projects on the horizon. Any industry specialists wishing to participate on technical committees, task forces or other areas of interest should contact the IICRC at
