The industry has been asking for another option for certification. You now have an option.

International Cleaning and Restoration Association Certification

The ICRA is now offering certification based upon written exams (cognitive assessments) in addition to their Performance Assessments as part of a new “Comprehensive Certification Program.” In response to the industry’s desire to have an option for certification, the new Comprehensive Certification Program is the next logical advancement in that process. Industry leaders from around the country have been working on bringing this program to the market for many months.

ICRA has registered 32 schools interested in offering ICRA certification exams. These are well known and respected schools and instructors that have been teaching in the industry for years. For a list of participating schools, please click here.

ICRA will “grandfather in” your certifications at a flat $40 fee

If you have a certification from another certifying body, you can have your certifications recognized (grandfathered in) without the need for another course or exam. Simply go to the ICRA website and complete a form, upload a copy of your certificate or ID card and pay a flat fee of $40 no matter how many certifications you have.

To have your certifications recognized by ICRA as part of the Certification Recognition Program, go to: http://icrassociation.org/certification/icra-certification or visit us at The Experience Convention and Tradeshow in Vegas, ICRA booth #604-606.
