About the Class
The House Cleaning Technician (HCT) training and certification program is a comprehensive overview of best practices in cleaning. This course is designed specifically for the HCT who wants to meet the expectations of this more educated marketplace of homeowners. Those who complete this course and pass the certification examination will be certified professionals who understand the value and methodology of proper cleaning. The material presented in this course has been researched and peer reviewed; it presents the cleaning industry's best practices. HCT Certification classes must be taught by IICRC-approved instructors and through an IICRC-approved school, such as ISE – the Institute for Service Excellence. It is this third party validation through IICRC that ARCSI believes will make House Cleaning Technician certification a "must have" for those cleaning companies who want to be viewed as the industry's leading professionals in the future. ARCSI will utilize IICRC-approved schools and instructors to present the classes. The HCT course takes approximately 14 hours over the course of two (2) days to deliver. An opportunity to take the HCT Certification Examination immediately follows the conclusion of the instruction; an additional payment of $65 to IICRC/CleanTrust must be made at the time the technician attends to take the certification examination.
An Important Distinction: Certification versus Training
The Development of a Professional Certification for House/Residential Cleaning
In 2007, at the urging of Past President David Kiser of Champagne Services, ARCSI began to explore the process of developing an industry-wide certification for the residential cleaning technician in conjunction with IICRC, the industry’s leading technical certification organization which also verifies certifications for the carpet cleaning industry, water damage and remediation, and others. In 2009, IICRC approved the House Cleaning Technician certification concept, for which the Institute for Service Excellence then developed the first curriculum and manual which was approved by IICRC.
