Five star reviewed Professional Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning course: NCCA training date

* Five-star.jpgThe National Carpet Cleaners Association is running a three-day comprehensive training course in professional carpet & upholstery cleaning from 14th through 16th February 2019.

A two-part entry level training course that has been awarded five stars and rated as "excellent" by 100% of reviewers, it is ideal for both newcomers to the cleaning industry and experienced professionals. Attendees will learn from impartial training on a wide spectrum of carpet and soft furnishing cleaning equipment and techniques.

Says industry newcomer Steven Fletcher, of Squirrel Property Services, who attended the course previously:

"It was a genuine pleasure to attend the recent training course. Paul and Pawlo (trainers) were brilliant, and carried a wealth of knowledge into the room, coupled with a fair bit of humour. I am new to the industry and I feel the course filled in some vital knowledge gaps that will enable me to provide the very best service to my customers. I will be looking at future courses to further enhance my skill set."

Established carpet & upholster professional, Thomas Hennessy, of T W H Carpet Cleaning, is just as enthusiastic, saying: "I really enjoyed the course, I've learnt a lot and more importantly I've brushed up on what I know. It's amazing how much you can forget or brush over when you're in the working world. Great course."
