Carpet Repair & Reinstallation Tech (RRT)

Carpet Repair & Reinstallation Tech (RRT) 2-day course

Jim Carfield is one of the industry’s foremost authorities on carpet specification and installation. With over 30 years experience, Jim’s firm still sells a variety of floor covering materials and runs multiple installation crews in central Indiana. A dynamic personality and down-to-earth instructor; over 2/3 of Jim’s course is hands-on!

Show me a home or business that needs carpet cleaning and I’ll show you one that needs repair services as well. “Why don’t I see that need on my jobs?” you ask.

That’s probably because you haven’t been trained to look for them. Maybe it’s because you lack confidence in your repair skills, and you don’t want to see the opportunities. For a small investment in a box with a few tools, you, like hundreds of other IICRC Certified Technicians, can cash in on thousands in extra income from carpet repair.

Still not convinced? Well, try this . . .Have you been putting off diversifying into water restoration services? Don’t feel qualified to handle those claims? How much are you paying subs to reinstall carpet that’s premeasured, precut, and already has the tackless in place? How much extra money could you or your crews earn if they could reinstall carpet? How much more convenient would that be for you and your customers?

Not interested in the money? Well, how bout learning repair and reinstallation simply to protect yourself from problems, caused by installers, that get blamed on you? That’s reason enough to get educated in carpet repair and reinstallation!

“So what’s the course cover?” you ask. Actually, it’s divided into 3 sections that cover the following:
