Carpet Inspector Education Becoming Certified
Carpet inspector education is far too basic and far to easy. To become a truly Qualified and Certified Carpet Inspector is not easy! In fact, very few individuals ever continue their carpet inspector education to that point.
Carpet inspector education required to gain Certification is a short 3 to 5 day class. The student learns how to identify the more common carpet problems. The basics of carpet inspection, basic report writing and what the carpet industry expects of them. If they pass the test and pay the fees they become a Certified Carpet Inspector.
Most newly certified inspectors soon learn that becoming a successful carpet inspector is much more difficult than they expected. It is not just about the carpet but also, industry standards, structural concerns, maintenance and more. Many are taken in by the ads they read for an inspection school. These ads have them believing that they would become an instant success. After performing a few inspections, they throw in the towel and move on to a different line of work. Few carpet inspectors that find success in the industry. Those that do, realized that becoming Certified was but a single step towards becoming a successful qualified expert.
