Carpet and upholstery cleaning courses

Anyone contemplating setting up in business as a carpet cleaner could find a weekend in Leicester well spent. This is where the National Carpet Cleaners Association is holding the next training course, aimed at both newcomers to the business as well as more experienced professionals, who may wish to extend, or update, their technical skills and knowledge, or perhaps complement the training courses provided by equipment manufacturers.

The NCCA Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning course provides impartial training on the complete spectrum of carpet and soft furnishing cleaning techniques and equipment currently available within the industry - with the added bonus of NCCA membership at the end of the line.

Attendance at this course, or a similar course, is mandatory for all new applicants for NCCA membership, who must achieve a pass to an appropriate standard of the test paper, which follows. Only after successful completion of the course will the applicant become eligible to be a fully accredited member of the NCCA and add the coveted logo to their company name.

The course will be led by Paul Pearce and Pawlo Woloszyn (directors of the NCCA) who are practicing carpet cleaners in daily touch with customers and their problems, as indeed are all the NCCA directors. As a result, participants are able to reap the benefit of their combined experience and thus avoid the pitfalls, which lie in wait for the unprepared.

The next course is to be held at the NSPCC training centre in Leicester on 22 & 23 January 2010. There will also be further courses throughout 2010 on: 9 & 10 April; 25 & 26 June; 20 & 21 August; and 29 & 30 October.
