Twenty set to complete custodian training course
Government's two-week custodian training programme, launched last month, will soon see 20 local workers certified for janitorial work with the Ministry of Education.
The Custodial Technician Certification is offered by the Department of Workforce Development, who engaged the New York based Cleaning Management Institute to supply training.
Out of the 11 trained last month, two have found full-time jobs and three are now employed part-time in the field.
The latest session runs from March 17 to March 24. Successful participants will obtain the Front Line Certification and Cleaning Management Institute Badge, which is recognised throughout North America.
Week one delivers “soft skills” such as work ethics and communicating with customers, while the second week focuses on cleaning skills.
