Training Nonprofit Earns CIMS-GB Certification
Training Rehabilitation & Development Institute (TRDI), a nonprofit corporation formed to enhance the lives of individuals with significant disabilities by providing training and employment opportunities, has successfully completed certification to the ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and CIMS-Green Building (CIMS-GB) with honors.
To earn CIMS certification, the San Antonio, TX-based nonprofit corporation underwent a comprehensive assessment by an accredited CIMS assessor. During the assessment, TRDI demonstrated its compliance with the five core principles of the standard: quality systems; service delivery; human resources; health, safety, and environmental stewardship; and management commitment.
Compliance with the CIMS-GB criteria illustrates TRDI’s commitment to delivering green and sustainable cleaning programs. The CIMS-GB designation helps TRDI provide its customers with precisely what they need to secure points under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance―or LEED EB: O&M―Green Building Rating System, while greening operations overall.
