Having trained, qualified and recognised cleaners contribute to your organisation’s productivity and efficiency.  There is so much more to gain!

1. Consistent and standard level of cleaning

Trained and qualified cleaners adhere to your organisation’s standard level of cleaning. You will be assured that they know your policies and procedures.

2. Increased productivity and efficiency

Reduced amount of time spent in re-work. Trained cleaners commit fewer mistakes which make them efficient and more productive. For commercial cleaning companies, productivity and efficiency can lead to client satisfaction and increased profitability.

3. Recognised cleaners are more motivated

We understand that your cleaners are already experienced. We can recognise those existing skills and knowledge through our REAL approach to training. This approach to training ensures cleaners are respected and their skills are recognised so they feel motivated.

4. Added advantage of having specialist cleaning skills

Have your cleaners acquire new skills to be a specialist in one or more areas of cleaning. Their new skills can help your organisation expand its scope and services to get that edge and added advantage.

5. Contribute to the health and wellbeing of people

Cleaners who are well trained can help contribute to the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders by preventing cross-contamination and controlling the spread of infection. They are an integral part of maintaining the health, safety, and wellbeing of our communities.

 A cleaning qualification developed by the sector for the sector

The New Zealand Certificate in Cleaning (Level 3) has been developed in close consultation with the cleaning sector to identify the skills and competencies you need. This qualification is for experienced cleaners in commercial, residential, health and domestic settings. It has flexible learning pathways for generalist cleaning, specialist cleaning and supervision.

The content and structure of the qualification will provide cleaners with the skills and knowledge identified as essential by the cleaning sector. Careerforce worked closely with sector representatives during the development.

“Lifelong learning is a hallmark of the cleaning industry which offers cleaners a range of qualifications which uphold industry standards. The cleaning industry recognised the need for a level 3 qualification building on level 2 certified skills and competencies. 

A level 3 qualification recognises a next step in the career path of cleaners, who are able to carry out their duties to a higher level, working independently as well as providing direction to their team.

Providing a level 3 qualification gives employer’s confidence, that all those who hold the qualification have demonstrated a recognised core set of skills and understanding.”
