About the instructor:
IICRC Course Instructor (RRT)
My name is John Carter and I am a Portland Oregon native. After high school had the pleasure of serving four years in the U.S. Army as a “Green Beret” in the 5th Special Forces unit at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. Upon exiting the Army, I attended Portland State University, and earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration and marketing. While attending college, I started a small janitorial service with a budget of less than $400.00, which quickly transformed itself into a professional carpet cleaning and restoration company in 1978.
I developed the specialty skill of carpet color correction early in my carpet cleaning career, and also became certified as a “Senior Carpet Inspector” Our professional services company eventually grew into a three truck operation that catered to repeat and referral customers exclusively.
In 1993, I handed over the operation of the carpet cleaning operation to my nephew Darin, who still runs the company to this day. I was then free in October of 1993 to begin a new business venture in the wholesale distribution trade.
I started teaching in the late 1990’s and the IICRC categories I instruct are: CCT, CRT, OCT, UFT, SCI, RRT.
My teaching is based on what I would call “Real World Experience” as I have been involved in all aspects of our industry from all perspectives. As I draw from my 35 years in the industry, I don’t teach just theory but rather how to be the best you can be from all of my industry Experience.
