Bane-Clene Institute is a unique carpet, rug and upholstery cleaning training school devoted to the concept that "nothing is constant except change." Content of classes actually changes every month to incorporate the latest developments in the economy and the carpet cleaning industry.

The three-day carpet cleaning classes are held with an intense classroom and hands-on curriculum. Highly skilled instructors cover a myriad of subjects. Every class is based on the actual experiences of our service business in Indianapolis.

The camaraderie and friendships that develop are invaluable to every individual, as people from around the world share their experience and knowledge. Students who have passed the written examination receive a registered certificate, suitable for framing, upon the successful completion of the course. Catered luncheons, gifts and many valuable handouts make this an enjoyable learning experience.

A detailed map of Indianapolis with nearby hotels and their rates will be sent to you with the confirmation of your registration.
