Stone, Masonry, and Ceramic Tile Cleaning Program
Main Menu


The program is ideal for new technicians that are not yet ready to attend a full certification training class yet need some basic knowledge about stone, masonry and ceramic tile cleaning and care, yet is a great refresher and review for IICRC Certified Technicians. Enough technical detail is in the program for even the most experienced certified technician to review and gain new information or be reminded of things he or she may have forgotten.

Completion of this training program qualifies the technician to apply for IICRC Continuing Education Credits (CECs).
