The Custodial profession today not only commands respect, but also requires a high degree of knowledge and skill. There are several reasons for the new “image”, but probably the most important is the fact that the Custodian has become vastly more important to the efficiency of an organization and a healthy environment. Modern buildings made of modern materials require modern equipment, chemicals and techniques in order to keep them sanitary, safe and in proper operating condition. The vast variety of floor surfaces alone, requires extensive knowledge if we are to adequately protect a company’s investment.
One of the important by-products in the evolution of the Custodial profession is CMI’s Custodial Supervisor Training and Certification Course. It is truly a milestone in our profession. The course is divided into three sections, each of which covers a particular area of supervising and managing custodial maintenance work. Each section also has a certification exam and the final exam at the conclusion of the course covers all information that has been presented. The exams include multiple choice, true and false, and essay-type questions.
Ideal For Continuing Training Programs
In-house facility cleaning operations and contract cleaning operations will find the Custodial Maintenance Supervision course ideal to use in a training program. In addition to working directly with individuals, CMI can also set up special arrangements with those who are responsible for custodial training.
