CMI, the education division of ISSA, is the premier training standard in the cleaning industry that gives you the right credentials to achieve the recognition you deserve.

The course equips trainers with the essential skills and knowledge needed to conduct hands-on training for cleaning operatives at two different levels (basic and advanced).
