What is the IICRC?

The IICRC stands for the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification. The IICRC is a non-profit organization that certifies, produces and oversees standards for the inspection, cleaning and restoration industries. 

This organization produces standards on cleaning and restoration topics. These standards include the “ANSI S500 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration” and the “ANSI S520 Standard for Professional Mold Remediation.” ANSI is the American National Standards Institute, which means each standard produced by the IICRC is peer reviewed and agreed upon by industry professionals. See a list of available standards and to purchase a subscription to access all the current and historical standards. (If you sign up for a subscription, use our code “REME”)

They offers certifications for individuals who take certification courses and pass an exam. These the include Water Restoration Technician (WRT), Applied Structural Drying Technician (ASD) and Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT). There are many other certifications you can obtain through. To earn a certification, a student must take an approved course, however, they do not offer education directly. Courses are available through approved schools. LearnToRestore.com is an approved school, and we offer many certification courses. 

Many IICRC certification courses are now offered online through live-stream classes. These classes require students to participate in class and take an exam. While most classes are available in the live-stream format, some classes like ASD, are not available online.

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification doesn’t just certify individuals, they certify businesses. Businesses can apply to become an IICRC Certified Firm. To apply, a business must have at least one IICRC certified and active technician, have the proper insurance coverage and business licenses, and pay an application fee. (Note that these requirements change from time to time, check the IICRC website for the latest requirements). 

Becoming a certified firm has several benefits. These include being listed on the IICRC global locator list, free monthly webinars on industry topics, Google verification, and use of the IICRC Certified Firm logo on your vehicles, business cards, and website. This shows your customers that you have gone through the application process and have been vetted by the IICRC.

Why do I need an IICRC certification?

IICRC certifications let others know you have been taught and have demonstrated the knowledge to obtain a certification issued by the IICRC. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification is a standards body that creates standards documents, courses and exams. With input from leaders in the restoration industry, the IICRC is recognized as the industry standard.

How do I become IICRC certified?

Earning an IICRC certification is an easy process! Take one of our IICRC classes and pass the corresponding exam. The exam lets you demonstrate your knowledge gained from the class. After you pass the exam, the IICRC will send you a certificate, patch and wallet card. Many IICRC classes don’t require any prior experience, such as the IICRC WRT (Water Restoration Technician) course. Some classes build upon knowledge gained in other IICRC classes and require prerequisite courses to be taken first. For example, the AMRT (Applied Microbial Remediation Technician) class requires students to take and pass the WRT course first. 

The IICRC ASD (Applied Structural Drying) class also requires WRT as a prerequisite, however we offer a combined WRT/ASD course so you can earn both certifications in one class!
