This is a flexible collection of practical skills which allows you to select those which are most suitable for your business needs. Additionally, you can build upon your training over time.

CIM Compulsory Cleaning Elements

This is achieved by attending a one day training course where you will learn about:

  • Chemical competence and risk assessment
  • Safe assembly and storage of equipment and materials

Delivery of the course is interactive using a mixture of presentations, exercises and discussion sessions. The course is 80% practical and builds upon the knowledge, skills and behaviours.

General Cleaning Skills

With more than 12 General Cleaning Skills available from damp mopping to cleaning toilets, the CIM General Cleaning Skills encompass all the cleaning skills and use of equipment that cleaning operatives use on a daily basis. Candidates can complete these skills once they have successfully achieved their Compulsory Cleaning Elements.

Advanced Cleaning Skills – Machinery

The Advanced Cleaning Skills require the use of machinery such as Buffing Machines and Scrubber Dryers. We are partners of Matrix Steam Cleaning Systems and Hygieia Group Ltd so our candidates can also undertake training in the latest steam cleaning and I-Mop Cleaning.

Specialist Cleaning Skills

Specialist Cleaning Skills are not your normal day to day cleaning operative duties. These skills require intense training for a number of reasons such as the use of specialist equipment, working at height, additional health and safety requirements. Covering cleaning including high level cleaning, boat cleaning and biohazard decontamination cleaning these skills equip you with the knowledge, skills and ability to perform specialist cleaning to the highest level.

Approved Training Centre for Matrix Cleaning Systems

We’re delighted to be an approved Training Centre and supplier for the Matrix Steam Cleaning Systems. Steam cleaning is becoming increasingly used in both domestic and commercial markets. Hospitals and schools, nurseries and care homes have seen the benefits and efficiencies that steam cleaning offers.

I-Mop – Working in Partnership with the Hygieia Group Ltd

The i-mop solves the problems of floor cleaning systems by combining the flexibility of a floor mop with the power and speed of industrial scrubber driers. Our cleaning audits and training identified that many cleaning operatives still clean floors by mop and bucket as they find many cleaning machines too big and bulky to clean some areas. The Hygieia Group introduced us to the Imop and we now offer training on this fabulous piece of kit as part of our CIM Cleaning Technology training packages.
