The purpose of the Janitorial Skill Training program is to provide participants with an opportunity to learn a broad range of janitorial tasks that will lead to successful employment in the Janitorial Services Industry.
Janitorial skills are taught in sequential learning from the easiest to more difficult tasks. The methods used in training include classroom demonstrations followed by group and individual instruction. Real work experiences involve practicing the performance of specific janitorial tasks within the agency and at training sites in the community.
Training begins with instruction in dust-mopping, mopping, garbage disposal, exterior clean up, vacuuming, high dusting, washroom sanitation, and window washing. Advanced training includes buffing, stripping, waxing, and carpet shampooing. Development of safe work habits in the use of janitorial chemicals and cleaning equipment is stressed throughout this program.
