The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Flooring Contractors Association (FCICA). As part of the recently approved MoU, the partnership will allow both organizations to combine their expertise and openly collaborate in providing best practices and awareness in the floor covering industry.  

"Partnering with an organization like FCICA allows the Institute to take a step forward and reach a new audience," said Tony Wheelwright, IICRC chairman.
Through the memorandum, IICRC and FCICA will work together to raise awareness of their collective industries and maintain an open dialogue in the sharing of industry knowledge and resources. As part of the agreement, both organizations will also cross promote their educational programs and cooperate on expanding internationally.
"We plan to educate our membership on IICRC and work together on commercial flooring issues like maintenance," stated Kim Oderkirk, FCICA's executive vice president. "In addition, IICRC will recognize FCICA's education sessions and webinars as continuing education credits for IICRC certifications. That's very important to us."
