Custodial Skills Training

Custodial Skills Training is designed to provide individuals with training in custodial methods in preparation for entry-level janitorial/custodial positions.

The  program begins with an introduction to the work environment and includes an equipment and supply review as well as a thorough overview of safety procedures regarding working with chemicals and other equipment.  Material data sheets and safety precautions are reviewed with each individual enrolled in the program.  In addition, participants are instructed in the proper methods for blood-borne pathogens cleanup and receive a separate certification in this area.

The curriculum is divided into five areas of housekeeping: restroom care, office cleaning, stripping and refinishing, floor buffing, and carpet cleaning.  Classroom time consists of trainer presentations, videos, and discussions, while hands-on work is completed in different areas throughout Vocational Guidance Services’ buildings.

Each phase of training includes classroom instruction and paid work experience or
on-the-job training with a qualified supervisor.

Participants who successfully complete VGS’ Custodial Skills Training Program
receive certification from the International Executive Housekeeping Association’s (I.E.H.A.) Frontline Program.
