Cleaning Training Course
The course provides students with the basic knowledge, skills, and competences related to general cleaning methods. Through the course, the skills gap generated by cleaners who learn the trade through past experience at work and at home due to a lack of formal education and training is bridged. This vocational training programme provides CLENTEC’s personnel with an understanding of interpersonal skills and allows growth in oneself to thus furthering their chances with the cleaning industry.
Following a skills gap-analysis and a consultation with CLENTEC’s management, a proffesional agency have created a training programme which factors in and ameliorate the typical weaknesses and strengths of each induvial. In order to ensure that all trainees, regardless of their intrinsic learning capabilities, reap the benefits of CLENTEC’s in-house training, an extremely interactive approach is undertaken.

To this effect, CLENTEC’s staffs are given the tools to embrace the profession’s theoretical aspect and are given the opportunity to turn theory into practice in a supervised environment.
The final objective of this training programme is to provide CLENTEC’s employees with a theoretic and practical anchor upon which they can continue to build their skill-set through ongoing hands-on experience and customer relations.
