First NZ ‘CPSS’ Graduates Receive their Certificates
The first New Zealand intake of candidates for the British Institute of Cleaning Sciences Cleaning Professional Skills Suite (CPSS) course have now completed the course and received their certificates.
The CPSS course is administered by Master Cleaners Training Institute, New Zealand’s only Accredited Training Provider with the British Institute of Cleaning Science.
Master Cleaners is backed by Crest Commercial Cleaning Ltd, who have always put great emphasis on training their franchisees. All CrestClean personnel undertake formal training programmes including induction training, practical cleaning training, proficiency assessments and annual upskilling.
To date over CrestClean 50 franchisees have successfully completed the CPSS course.
Master Cleaners CEO Adam Hodge has been very pleased with the way the courses have operated.
“It’s great to be able to offer the CPSS ‘Licence to Clean’ in New Zealand, and our personnel have really appreciated its practical emphasis”, says Adam.
“The mandatory units cover relevant NZ Health and Safety and Environmental practices and procedures, which has fitted in well with our increasing emphasis on Health and Safety in the workplace.”
CrestClean franchisees are the most qualified cleaners in New Zealand, with over 800 personnel having been trained previously to the NZQA standards by CrestClean trainers and registered assessors.
Master Cleaners achieved accreditation with BICSc in February 2013, and commenced its first courses right away. The courses have been delivered around New Zealand, with Adam Hodge training and assessing CrestClean franchisees in their local regions.
Master Cleaners and CrestClean understand that investment in training leads to increased skills and greater workplace productivity levels. Training builds competence and confidence, improving productivity, job quality and increasing staff retention.
“We are delighted with the way our partnership with BICSc’s is operating”, says Adam, “and we are looking forward to the next 50 candidates graduating the CCPS course in the second half of this year”.
