Commercial & Office Cleaning Training Course

Become the very best with our cleaner training course for cleaners working in commercial buildings, offices, schools, colleges, and similar places with a thorough foundation in all of the most essential cleaning skills and techniques.


Commercial and office cleaners, who are often a mix of employed and contract, are often the forgotten army of cleaners. Day-by-day they go about their tasks in the background and yet their role and the impact they have on the organisation is very significant. They maybe in the background but failing cleaning standards and failing safety awareness are highly visible, their actions (or inactions) can lead to an abrupt interruption to normal business operations.


Contract cleaners have the additional responsibility of being representatives of the cleaning company or agency they work for, after all, the cleaners are the very visible face of the company. It is therefore incumbent on cleaners to think and act like professionals delivering a service to customers.

Course Content




Impact of Cleaning

Cleaners and housekeepers are often unaware of the consequences of their actions or inactions and the impact they have on the organisation, its staff, customers and public. It is vitally important for cleaning and housekeeping staff to understand that the standard of cleaning has a direct and significant impact of the successful operation of an organisation. Everyone – staff, customers and the public, must have confidence that you can provide a safe and clean place, no exceptions.


The following topics are covered:

The consequences of a poor appearance and visual standards to staff, customers and the general public

The risks of poor hygiene on infection control

The risk of injury to people from poor or lack of good cleaning practices


Planning for Cleaning

The biggest cause of inconsistent and inefficient cleaning is the lack of a structure for cleaning tasks and an attitude that lacks the drive for self continuous improvement. The key concept of this section is to approach cleaning focused on quality and on the people that use the rooms and surfaces, which could be staff or customers. This section takes students through the entire process of creating working cleaning plans, which by the end they will know what cleaning technique to use, the order of cleaning tasks from start to finish, and the cleaning standards to achieve. This section covers the following topics:

The problems with poor cleaning planning

An understanding of surface materials and the appropriate cleaning technique for that surface

Prioritising cleaning tasks into different cleaning routines according to the impact of cleaning

Detailed cleaning standards to achieve for different rooms and areas

Principles of arranging cleaning tasks in order to maximise efficient working

Cleaning plans for specific rooms as applicable – toilets, bathrooms, showers, kitchens, etc

Self-reviewing for continuous improvement

Good housekeeping practices

Training Delivery

The delivery of training must accommodate the widest reach and most flexible range of situations cleaners and housekeepers work in, so we offer a range of onsite and distance learning delivery options.

Onsite Training is the gold standard option and confers the greatest assessment of learning. An onsite course can be created from a range of modules and specific topics within modules can be emphasised or removed to match the needs of the organisation.

Distance Learning is a cost and time effective option for busy organisations. The full course content, chosen from the list of modules, is presented in a printable workbook for delegates to study. Every delegate is required to submit an answer sheet and assignment for marking.
