IICRC to launch technical journal
VANCOUVER, WA — The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) will be launching a peer-reviewed technical journal serving the cleaning, restoration and inspection industries in early 2014.
Titled The Journal, the publication will provide certified firms, master cleaners, master restorers, inspectors and instructors with in-depth technical articles in each of the disciplines represented by the Institute: Hard-surface cleaning, soft-surface cleaning, disaster restoration and inspection.
“Technical journals are common in most professional fields,” said IICRC chairman Darrel Paulson. “The cleaning, restoration and inspection industry is a very small niche market, and is currently unserved. No other industry organization is positioned as well as the Institute to meet this need.”
The Journal will be published six times per year, commencing in early 2014 and will be distributed to certified firms, master cleaners, master restorers, inspectors, IICRC schools and instructors and members of the newly formed trade association, IICRCA.
