Crime Scene Cleanup Certification

Warning - Do not pay for crime scene cleanup training or "certification"

You will not find a crime scene cleanup job because county employees, coroner, medical examiner, probate's public guardians and even fire fighters and homicide detectives have a monopoly over crime scene cleanup work. This includes suicide cleanup as well as unattended deaths, decomposition.


Fight Corruption - Certifications


Crime scene cleanup "certification" means you got cheated, nothing else.
Bing - Google - Yahoo!

Don't spend money on a crime scene cleanup certification school. Employers do their own employee crime scene cleanup training, then they award employees their crime scene cleanup certification beanie. This is usually bloodborne pathogen training with janitorial skills thrown in.

Your most important cleaning certification come from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, Certification, and Restoration. Do a simple web search with one of the above search engines. Also known as the "IICRC," this certifying body has years of service across the United States. It certifies thousands of cleaners.

Acton's Official Crime Scene Cleanup Certification Web Site

Look no further because you have found it.


Here's what you need to do. After a visit to the official crime scene cleanup web site, come back, if you dare. What you will learn may blow your mind away. Some who visit will not get far. They will know that whatever they do, they have chosen a losing path. Are you one of those without patience?

By the way, your county coroner's department as well as the public guardian most likely have their own monopoly over crime scene cleanup. These folks usually hire their friends and family members first. Be prepared for receiving zero in job placement.

Next, place a writing pad near your telephone along with a telephone. Leave these tools in place.

Then, visit a bloodborne pathogen training web site. Once you find a bloodborne pathogen training company for about $25, take the course. Perhaps Californiahas an American Red Cross. Get your bloodborne pathogen training here through 4 rigorous hours of first aid training, including a certification in bloodborne pathogen training. Cost, about $50.

Now you have CERTIFICATION for blood cleanup .


Next, call your local environmental protection agency, your local health department, and then state offices for these same subjects. Ask about requirements for cleaning up after deaths for a profit. If you think you need bloodborne pathogen training and something else, then find out what that something else might require.

Next, have the very best of luck with your bloodborne pathogen certification. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration require bloodborne pathogen training. Now you have it.

If someone says you need more and they work for the government, you better listen. If someone says,"You need crime scene cleanup certification" and they own a "school" or crime scene cleanup training web site, I don't think that they have much integrity. Find out for yourself.


Now, if you enjoy reading my words of wisdom, perhaps you might find something useful at my crime scene cleanup blog, the official, certificated web site. I certified it myself, so I should know about its certification. There's much more to know.

I use Orange County Consumer Fraud to inform Orange County residents about their local government's fraud. There are many other web sites that I use for public education. I use Los Angeles Biohazard Cleanup to inform Los Angeles residents about corruption in their local government. It seems that employees from coroner, medical examiner, county administration and public guardian, fire fighters, and police and sheriff's deputies have their fingers in crime scene cleanup referrals.

There's not much else that I can do when it comes to these local government corruption issues. I've done all I can do. I continue to do all I can do. At least, I think I've done all that I can do.

One day we'll live in a better place. Free enterprise for the little wallets will prevail. Those with an interest in blood cleanup will make a decent wage. Those with a goal to do biohazard cleanup work will find reasonable advertising from of government sponsors, like crony county employees.

Fight Corruption

It's never too late to help Ed Evans fight corruption in our local governments. Fight back with all of your might. Tell you county supervisors to post public information sign wherever the public does its county business. Inform people, tax payers that county employees have no right to refer death cleanup companies. I have created a death cleanup directory to help citizens in need. One day it will lead them to a local death cleanup company for help during their moment of grief.


Just as important, bloodborne pathogen certification will help those who must help themselves. Not everyone will have money enough to hire a certified cleaner. Some people prefer to do their own blood cleanup work. After all, it's a family matter many times.


Certification may become a common term. It seems that many other occupational fields, besides this janitorial blood cleanup field, should have certification There's no telling who must work around blood. Even Los Angeles General Contractors have accidents on their grounds. Certify these builders. Certify those who work with them for knowledge in bloodborne pathogen exposures.

Whether blood cleanup certification, suicide cleanup certification, or trauma cleanup certification, certification gives the world notice: this person has a certificate proving that they've achieved crime scene cleanup certification requirements.

I, for instance, improved my self-esteem as a young man by becoming a "certified" scuba diver. For me, this achievement gave me something special. Something special like achieving certification helped prove to my peers that I could do something unique, where before I seemed to be failing.

We find that certifications help individual s improve their skills, abilities, and knowledge. We also help consumers ensure their services receive a minimum standard of work.



Below find courses offered through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, Restoration, and Certification.

  • WRT/ASD Combo Course: This is fundamental training. This type of course will usually include water damage restoration training and applied structural drying. No crime scene cleaner should be without it. It begins a strong foundation for dealing with fluid movement, damage, and restoration. Once a sound background develops, cleaners will find that more than one course experience pays for itself.
  • CCT - Carpet Cleaning Technician: Why a carpet cleaning course? Because a professional cleaner comes to those conditions where a wide background in carpet cleaning serves their clients. There are times when blood smears and blood droplets require removal. Needlessly damaging an expensive carpet for lack of cleaning experience leaves the mark of an amateur. We remove carpet only when blood puddles or otherwise saturated fabric.
  • CCMT - Commercial Carpet Maintenance Technician: Like above carpet issues, commercial "glue down" carpets need not be damaged unless soaked or saturated with blood. Easily removed blood smears or tiny blood droplets do come off. Peroxide and other chemicals may complete decontamination as cleaning comes to completion.
  • FCT - Floor Care (Hard Surfaces) Technician: Reading some of the literature about crime scene cleanup leaves one with the impression that hard surface floor care is not taken seriously. I must receive attention to avoid silly, costly errors. See my review of The Dead Janitors Club.
  • FSRT - Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Technician: There's no telling when a homicide burned out by a perpetrator will come your way. It would do the cleaner well to know something about this world of chard remains.
  • HST - Health and Safety Technician - "Safety first" needs a hearing on all job sites before work begins. A health and safety technician looks before leaping. Know what to look for and what not to move pays dividends for clients as well as cleaners.
  • HCT - House Cleaning Technician - At least one home inspection course will round out a cleaners rough edges. There's plenty to know. What about those electric wires? What about those water pipes traversing through an addict soiled by great quantities of blood. There's building structure and all the add-on accouterments to a home's life support system.
  • LCT - Leather Cleaning Technician: This course becomes a must for those interested in cleaning high-end vehicles, including aircraft and boats.
  • OCT - Odor Control Technician: - Death's odors typically overcome the uninitiated. What to do about it and what should not do about death's odors confronts almost every crime scene cleaner.
  • RRT - Carpet Repair & Reinstallation Technician: At times a cleaner can remove more money from their client's table by offering these important services. You're there, you know what to do, so why not do some repair and reinstallation work. Besides, this training gets to the nooks-and-crannies of what goes on below those two layers of latex.
  • UFT - Upholstery & Fabric Cleaning Technician - Like any other type of cleaning, knowing upholstery and fabric cleaning pays off. It's not correct to destroy perfectly good upholstery and fabric out of ignorance. A trained practitioner knows before hand what can and cannot be salvaged. It's as important know what to salvage as it is to know what to demolish.
  • WRT - Water Damage Restoration Technician - As a refresher or first time course, there' more than enough here to chew on. One time in the course gets the brain moving on important subjects. The next time in this course, cleaners begin there career as a subject matter expert, given the personal initiative.
  • ISSI - Introduction to Substrate Subfloor Inspection - If you didn't know before, you will soon. Every now and then the cleaner enters a building's subfloor out of necessity. Floor must come out when blood migrates too far.
    SMT - Stone, Masonry and Ceramic Tile Cleaning Technician - It's clear enough that these skills join the cleaners routine cleaning efforts. Knowing what to do and how to do it proves important. If "time is money" holds true, this course will leave cleaners with more money in their pockets. It's good to know what to look for in a room upon entering. Knowing what can be done by cleaning and what must be done otherwise rewards the informed.
