Enrollment opens for next ‘Textile Pros’ program

December 9, 2011

SAN DIEGO, CA — Rug expert Lisa Wagner and upholstery expert Jim Pemberton have opened up enrollment for their 2012 team of Textile Pros, according to a press release.

The Textile Pro program is a three phase training process that spans six months incorporating on-line basic textile training, in-person advanced “hands-on” skills training, as well as strategic marketing, business development, and technical support.

"We have a serious deficit in specialists in the fields of rug and fine fabric care because the current training model in our industry is broken. This is our way of fixing this problem through a multi-faceted training process that helps cleaners to be the best in their craft," shares Jim.

Lisa adds, "There are plenty of classes to take in our industry that hit the basics and power point you to death. We didn’t want to teach yet another typical class, we wanted to train the next group of top experts in our fields and give them all of the tools that they need to succeed."

Jim and Lisa are currently accepting applications in order to choose the forty companies that they will be working with from January through June of 2012.
