FRANKLIN, TN — The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) approved the WoolSafe Fabric Care Specialist On-line Training Course for two IICRC Continuing Education Credits (CECs), according to a press release.
The WoolSafe Fabric Care Specialist Training Course provides professional cleaners with a convenient and cost-effective means for advancing their knowledge of wool-rich carpet, high-value rug and upholstery cleaning, the release stated.
Ruth Travis, WoolSafe''s North American Director, said: "Previously the course was only offered in a face-to-face format with limited availability to professional cleaners interested in learning more about wool and high-value wool carpet and rug cleaning. Now students throughout the world will have the opportunity to choose to attend a course in person or study on-line."
This course is divided into numerous sections or modules and includes subjects such as:
History of wool
Wool characteristics

Specialty spotting
Wool cleaning-related challenges and solutions
WoolSafe approved cleaning products.
Each of the 33 modules is followed by self-evaluation, multiple-choice questions based on the information presented in the current module; students simply read each question and select the correct answer from the options provided, the release noted
Each question is graded electronically for immediate feedback. Once the course is successfully completed, students receive a completion certificate to send to the IICRC for two CECs, the release added.
