NORTHBROOK, IL — February 22, 2019 — As a part of its brand promise to change the way the world views cleaning, ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, has released a new online learning platform under the Cleaning Management Institute (CMI) portfolio. This extensive program will feature engaging opportunities to achieve certifications and earn continuing-education credits, as well as private-branding opportunities to increase awareness for participating ISSA members.

The CMI Online Learning Platform is an expansion of the current educational offerings and reflects ISSA’s continued support of education, training, and certification within the cleaning industry. The platform will continue to grow with more courses being added, but some of the immediate opportunities include:

  • ISSA Online learning subscription (annual)

“ISSA recognized the need to provide a dynamic platform accessible from anywhere,” said Brant Insero, director of education, training, and certification for ISSA. “Cleaning professionals are busier than ever, and we want to empower them with effective educational tools that are available 24/7, on demand.”

The new online learning platform is the first industry-wide learning management system designed to support each member class within ISSA: residential cleaners, in-house service providers, building-service contractors, distributors/wholesalers, and manufacturers. Any and all cleaning-industry professionals can access and utilize ISSA’s online learning, and ISSA members will enjoy a discounted pricing structure.
