Training is VERY good. I did mine about 4 years ago, with 17 years experience as a CC, I learned shedloads of new things and was reminded about the amount of knowledge i had forgotten Roll Eyes
Paul Pearce was the trainer and was very easy to listen to, without the wish to sleep or look out the window. I am going to go again in the near future and then go on to join up, should have done it before but.......... Embarassed
At the risk of upsetting anyone.......i would say that you cannot go on a better course than the NCCA one.
*Disclaimer: Other training courses may offer paralled value and knowledge but possibly with a brand bias *

I attended the training in November 2003 which was excellent Paul Pearce and Pawlo Woloszyn have vast knowledge of the carpet cleaning industry and are not frightened to pass it on.I joined in December and i only wish i had done it sooner.I implemented some of the tips to my business and I have doubled my turnover in such a short period Grin.I would highly recommend it

Just going for a day, Rob?

    Yes, just the upholstery course on the saturday.
  I did the carpet course 17 months ago, so I can still take the exam after the saturday.

I did the course 20 years ago with Ian Day at Franklins factory, but never took the exam so I could join.

Hey Rob 's'

Twenty years ago...Franklins...Ian Day...that brings back some memories.

To all those going on to the NCCA course in a couple of weeks....

Enjoy the will learn a lot... the most important thing is to have an open mind and be prepared to change some of your existing practices
