Carpet Dyeing Classes

About Carpet Dyeing Classes

Rest assured you have come to the right place for your carpet dyeing education.
Americolor and The Dyers Guild have offered classes in the use of carpet dyes for over 40 years. As a family owned and operated business we have taught thousands of classes in the art of color repair and are leaders in the professional carpet industry.  We have written countless publications, given lectures across the world and have been an integral part of setting the national standards with the IICRC, including writing the first CRT exam. We are the only source for a full education in all aspects of carpet dyeing; including spot, full room, side match, over-dyeing and fine rug restorations. More importantly we have over 100 years of combined experience in performing various color repairs on residential and commercial carpets as well as fine rugs.

F.A.Q.

Yes, you will need dyes and the carpet samples for the class. A class kit can be purchased for $25.50. If you already own dyes we can send you the carpet samples for free plus shipping.

If you already own dyes we can send you the carpet samples for free plus shipping.

The prerequisite is not required by me for the course. It is only required by the IICRC for taking the Color Repair Technician Test.

If you have no interest in taking the test and getting certified with IICRC then, you do not need the prerequisite.

With any online class you must have a computer with video and audio capabilities. We will be using Zoom. You must have access to a strong, stable internet connection. All Classes are held in Pacific Standard Time.
