Safeguarding Cleaner And Healthier Outcomes, ANAB Accredits Newly Launched Cloroxpro Healthyclean ® Certificate Program – Trained Manager Course
To help guide commercial cleaning managers with essential strategies and best practices needed to run efficient and sustainable health operations, the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the American National Standards Institute, has accredited the CloroxPro HealthyClean ® Certificate Program – Trained Manager Course, in accordance with the American National Standard (ANS) ANSI/ASTM E2659-18, Standard Practice for Certificate Programs.
The course is now the second industry-wide certificate program designed for professional cleaners to earn ANAB accreditation, in addition to the CloroxPro HealthyClean ® Trained Specialist Certificate Course accredited by ANAB in 2022.
Launched in October 2023, the ANAB-accredited CloroxPro HealthyClean ® Certificate Program – Trained Manager Course is a comprehensive online course designed for cleaning managers and supervisors. It provides strategies and resources to help hire, manage, and empower a cleaning team—amplifying the importance of investing in education and auditing training outcomes. The course offers best practices for streamlining operations and logistics, managing inventory and staffing, selecting products and tools that both enable cleaning and support smart disinfection and risk assessment approaches, among other guidance.
The HealthyClean Trained Manager Course is the latest addition to the CloroxPro HealthyClean ® online learning platform, which provides cleaning professionals with education and training with on-demand certificate courses that offer specific cleaning and disinfecting protocols, product use and processes, and the latest best practices.
Through its Certificate Accreditation Program, ANAB assesses and accredits certificate programs as conforming to the requirements of ANSI/ASTM E2659. The ANS was developed by ASTM International Committee E36, Personnel Certificate Programs, in accordance with the practices established by the World Trade Organization (WTO) Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee’s “Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations.”
“ANAB accreditation means that accredited CloroxPro certificate courses have met the highest standards for program quality and training,” said Dr. Vijay Krishna, ANAB vice president, credentialing, ANAB. “We are proud to have a leading role in supporting sustainable health in facilities through accreditation.”
“CloroxPro is committed to bringing education to the industry that helps safeguard public health and supports cleaning managers and employees, especially with the current levels of burnout and retention the industry faces,” says Kyra de St. Paer, senior director of marketing, CloroxPro. “We are proud to work with ANAB to confidently build high-quality training programs for professional cleaners.”
Manager candidates are encouraged to first complete the CloroxPro HealthyClean ® Trained Specialist Course. Candidates who satisfactorily complete the course and final evaluation are assigned a Certificate of Mastery, digital badge, and the “CloroxPro HealthyClean Trained Manager” designation. The certificate and designation term are valid for three years.
