Doug and Sandy have both been active in the Cleaning and Restoration Industries for many years. Doug’s knowledge of carpet; construction, dying methods, soil and stain repellents, and how each affects our ability to clean and restore – along with his ability to pass on this knowledge - is just a few of the many reasons for over 35 years he has had the privilege of assisting countless thousands of folks to use that knowledge to develop, operate, and contribute to their successful Carpet Cleaning businesses. Doug is known for his humorous approach, making learning FUN – a true “Edutainer.”

Sandy has birthed, owned, operated, and sold three restoration businesses during her career. During that time, she’s been able to help many folks solve problems in their own restoration businesses. She’s had the privilege of being the Chair of the IICRC Fire & Smoke Restoration Technician (FSRT) Technical Advisory Committee for over 16 years. She’s an IICRC Triple-Master and has taken that in-field experience, education, and knowledge, and passed it on to her students wanting IICRC certifications for over 25 years.

The challenge of a successful business often depends on the ability to access quality training. In recent years, on-line training has become a viable and valuable source of educating business owners and their employees.
The opportunity to fill the need of education has been met with courses that can be accessed through computers and tablets, and literally thousands of companies have discovered how to evaluate, qualify, and benefit from live on-line training.
Here are a few of those advantages for you to think about:


You do not have both the time and expense of travel.
You do not have the expense of hotel accommodations and you sleep in your own bed. There are no additional meal and incidental expenses.
You are not confused by the opinions and the influences of others.
There is no one there trying to sell you something.
There is no one that may try to hire your valued employee.
Employers can monitor their employee's progress.
You still get a comprehensive reference manual and field guide.


In addition to the above advantages of live on-line training, we go above and beyond when it comes to providing every student with an entertaining and educational experience. We love teaching and we make learning fun. We treat our students like family and nurture them with follow-up help when needed.
