IICRC Announces New Technician Certification

February 16, 2021 IICRC Announces New Technician Certification

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) has announced the availability of a new Contents Processing Technician (CPT) certification.

CPT certification details best practices for contents processing based on available technology and resources. Topics include the restoration of contents subjected to various contaminations as well as inspection, inventorying, wrapping, packing, deodorizing, storage, and other principles.

“The CPT certification course fits a very specialized, but much needed, niche in the IICRC certification categories,” said Jessika James-Goern, CPT technical advisory committee chair.  “As the contents recovery and processing industry grows and advances, our certified firms and registrants must have the appropriate education available to work with the high expectations of insurance companies and customers in this highly profitable area of restoration and preservation.”
