IICRC News: New Year, a More Educated You
Is advancing your career on your list of 2020 New Year’s resolutions? The IICRC offers a variety of advanced certifications, including a Trauma and Crime Scene Technician course. If physical certifications aren’t what you’re looking for, take a look at our Inspection Certifications such as the Resilient Flooring Inspector certification.
As technicians accumulate various certifications, they become eligible for advanced designations such as the IICRC Master – the industry’s highest technical designation. With a minimum of three years as an IICRC Certified Technician and the attainment of specific courses, you can advance your career by earning an IICRC Master Designation in Textiles, Fire and Smoke and Water Restoration.
