CCT - Carpet Cleaning Technician
The IICRC-approved Carpet Cleaning Technician (CCT) course is designed to teach the art and science of carpet cleaning to professional service providers, as well as others in related industries. Emphasis is placed on practical application, identifying fiber, yarn and carpet constructions, style types and finishes, soiling conditions, cleaning science and methodology, and other issues and concerns faced by individuals who maintain and clean installed broadloom carpet. When coupled with additional on-the-job training and field experience, students should be adequately prepared to perform carpet cleaning techniques and procedures. They also should be adequately prepared to accomplish further training in other IICRC-approved courses, which require CCT as a prerequisite. The course is designed to cover pre-inspection, fabric identification, basic cleaning chemicals and equipment, and proper cleaning techniques and procedures with a residential and light commercial emphasis. (2 day course; 14 hours, not including exam time, lunch and breaks)
People looking to start their own business should seriously consider this course! In a 2013 Carpet Cleaning Benchmark Survey Report by Clean Fax Magazine, they found that 74% of Carpet Cleaning businesses in the United States had gross revenues exceeding $75,000.00 a year! 72% of those companies were expecting to see significant increases in revenues in 2014, and were currently enjoying a whopping 40% profit margin. Many of the companies we cater to are one man operations. That means that with a little training, a lot of hard work, and the support of a full spectrum supplier/maintenance/and education facility like PCCS you could very well be making six figures in close to the time it would take you to get an associates degree from a community college! Once you've decided to take control of your own destiny and start a business in the carpet cleaning or restoration industries, PCCS will support and guide you every step of the way from start to finish!
