Company Rescues Cleaners

Company Rescues Cleaners

Dunedin based CrestClean has stepped in to provide new training skills to New Zealand cleaners following the collapse of the Building Service Contractors Industry Training Organisation (BSCITO).

We are excited to announce the launch of the Master Cleaners Training Institute that is an Accredited Training Organisation with the British Institute of Cleaning Services (BICS). In partnership with BICS the institute will provide accredited training programmes in the Professional Cleaners Skills Suite,” says Grant McLauchlan, Managing Director of Crest Commercial Cleaning.

CrestClean has experienced significant growth in people seeking out formal industry training as they enter the commercial cleaning sector as a career path to achieving both business and personal goals. Long gone are the days of part time employees using the cleaning industry as a stop gap between other jobs, customers these days demand and expect a professional service and this move will support that demand.

CrestClean has been working on the new Master Cleaners Training Institute concept for the last 6 months which has proven timely with the loss of the dedicated cleaning ITO that has struggled under its current Building Services Contractors control.

“We have grasped the opportunity to step in and provide internationally recognised training programme for the commercial cleaning industry,” said Mr McLauchlan.

One of the industry's most experienced trainers Adam Hodge has been appointed CEO of the Master Cleaners Training Institute.

“Moving forward, and where we can be of great benefit to other organisations, we will be in a position to offer a customised training program, which can be based around their workplace, tailored to suit all their business requirements, resulting in staff that are competent in the necessary core skills, Health & Safety and best practice process and procedures,” said Mr Hodge.

With over 30,000 commercial cleaners across New Zealand, this drive to raise the standards and status of the industry has got to be good news for both New Zealand employees and the businesses that employ them.

“There is no doubt that an investment in training builds not only confidence, but also competence in people. That is why CrestClean has invested heavily in training its people which has led to the explosive growth in our business.”

“Being associated with the BICS also supports CrestClean’s international business expansion strategy that has seen our operations in India and pending South East Asia rapidly expanding to meet client demand for cleaners that have been properly trained. Now New Zealand cleaners have that opportunity,” Mr McLauchlan said.
