CrestClean personnel have completed 1038 Master Cleaners Training Institute courses over the past year, demonstrating the company’s ongoing commitment to professionalism in the cleaning industry.
Institute CEO Liezl Foxcroft said despite lockdowns over the past 12 months, the number of CrestClean the personnel to undergo training has increased by a third, indicating that franchisees are staying with the company longer and choosing to grow their businesses.
The introduction of pandemic training, including courses on how to carry out deep cleans and sanitising, has contributed to the increase in upskilling, says Liezl.
“Many businesses have continued with our sanitising service. They value having healthy, clean workplaces for their staff,” said Foxcroft.
“With a heightened awareness about health and hygiene, businesses are seeking a cleaning service that is not only carried out efficiently, but one that is backed by science. All CrestClean’s personnel are trained to a high standard, based on international best practice.”
The Master Cleaners Training Institute was established by CrestClean in 2012 to raise the standards and status of the cleaning industry in New Zealand.
It is based on and draws expertise from the British Institute of Cleaning Science, the largest independent, professional and educational body within the cleaning industry.
“In the absence of a governing body here in New Zealand, we wanted to set the bar, and set it high,” adds Foxcroft
“We don’t just train, we assess as well, to ensure people are competent in what they are taught. You can have the equipment, the chemicals and the staff, but without training, you have nothing. It is the training that underpins success.”
