The 32BJ Training Fund offers a wide range of excellent industry and basic education programs designed specifically for commercial cleaners. These courses are developed with input from building owners cleaning contractors, and union members to give your employees the skills they need to succeed. Our instructors utilize the latest teaching techniques to provide an interactive experience in all classes. The Training fund is your partner in helping your employees to achieve success in their careers. We look forward to working with you and your eligible 32BJ employees.
Give your Commercial Cleaning staff a brief introduction to green cleaning, by having them attend the three-hour Green Buildings: Basic Green Cleaning and Maintenance quick course. For a more in-depth version, you can request a class called Green Buildings: Commercial Green Cleaning for Health and Efficiency. This course combines cleaning instruction with training on how to help your building save energy and water and improve indoor air quality. Both classes can be held at your onsite location to accommodate your staff.
English as a Second Language
We continue to offer English as a Second Language courses to help your employees improve their English. Your employees can learn and improve their English in a comfortable setting with other commercial cleaners. For the first time we are also offering a hybrid Online/In-Person class for members who are computer savvy and wish to practice their English language skills at home, as well as in the classroom.
The 32BJ Training Program has developed two Commercial Cleaning career tracks, Cleaner and Cleaning Foreperson/Lead Cleaner, to provide students with the essential tools and competencies needed to excel at their careers. Each Career Track is composed of both required and elective courses/quick courses developed to give students the fundamental structure necessary to meet the challenges and changes in today’s commercial building service industry.
