I have a small business cleaning tile and natural stone in Miami, Fl. I recently decided to start cleaning carpet and upholstery. I attended a IIRC carpet class and it was really overwhelming with text book information. I didn’t feel like we got much hands on training. I have been turning down many jobs with natural fibers, especially upholstery. Can anyone recommend a great class with alot of hands on cleaning in the Florida area or a good online class to learn?

Honestly it all depends on your instructor.
Over here in Concord I had an awesome instructor. He made clean some real life client upholstery. Upholstery that a " profesional " had cleaned many times with same results, and that the owner had washed in the washer and was frustrated. She wasn't frustrated once our instructor had us clean it, It pretty much looked brand new and the person who brought it in was in awe! the owner was super excited to see it like never before.

So it really depends on your instructor, he made us do cleaning for like 4 hours everyone had to.
