CMI certifies its latest crop of JanSan professionals

June 7, 2011

LATHAM, NY — The Cleaning Management Institute (CMI) recently completed another successful Train the Trainer course at their office just outside of Albany, New York, on May 17-19.



For those not familiar with Train the Trainer, it is a course structured to help train and certify members of the JanSan industry so they can successfully implement training at their organization; the class is a great way to begin or refine effective, high-quality training.

Over the years, Train the Trainer has seen hundreds of attendees successfully complete the three-day course, which covers the curriculum in the Custodial Technician Training and Certification programs and includes topics such as:

  • The chemistry of cleaning
  • Cleaning above floor surfaces
  • Cleaning and caring for carpeted floors
  • Cleaning and maintaining hard floors
  • Restroom care.

Attendees have diverse backgrounds: The course has seen everyone from front-line cleaners to corporate chief executive officers (CEOs) and corrections officers to building owners.

Though it hasn''t been held in every state, Train the Trainer has received an attendee from each state in the U.S. and has welcomed numerous international guests.

The key to CMI''s Train the Trainer course is its dedication to educating attendees on the best ways to teach and inspire their employees.

CMI''s training programs have been used as steppingstones within organizations to encourage growth — and, a few organizations have even rewarded their staffs for completing different levels of training with wage increases.

In the end, educated and motivated staffs are empowered to work more efficiently and diligently while showing increased pride in their work.
