HealthyClean brings interactive and specialized training to the College’s Healthcare Environmental Services Management program, which uniquely prepares students for supervisory roles in health-care settings. Centennial’s two-year diploma is recognized and recommended by the Provincial Infectious Diseases Advisory Committee — a multidisciplinary group of health-care professionals who provide expert advice to Public Health Ontario on Infection Prevention and Control.

The course will build on the lessons first- and second-year students receive at Centennial, preparing them to manage and mentor frontline environmental services staff on the systems and processes that protect workers, clients, and patients from environmental hazards in health-care settings.

“With HealthyClean, CloroxPro is building on its commitment to support the next generation of environmental service professionals with the skills needed to succeed in the health-care industry,” said Bilal Demachkie, Business Unit Director, CloroxPro Canada. “Launching the one-of-a-kind HealthyClean program in a school was a no-brainer because it provides an opportunity to directly prepare students for supervisory roles, and Centennial was a natural fit — we’re thrilled to have them on board.”

What can students get out of the HealthyClean Trained Specialist Course?

Students who successfully complete the HealthyClean Trained Specialist Course will add a Certificate of Mastery to their portfolio as well as a digital badge they can add to their online signature, and social profiles, like LinkedIn.

“Offering an opportunity to learn from an industry giant is just one more way we are preparing students for supervisory roles in health care, where effectively managing environmental services is critical to keeping patients, staff and visitors safe,” said Karen Barnes, Program Coordinator and Professor, Healthcare Environmental Services Management at Centennial College. “We are excited to partner with CloroxPro to help students enhance their resumés by earning a unique certificate that attests to their knowledge and skills while completing their diploma.”

HealthyClean is the only industry-wide certificate program designed for frontline cleaners and managers that is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) National Accreditation Board, with recognized accreditation by Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) Canada. To receive an ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) accreditation, a certificate program must meet rigorous global standards set for design, delivery, monitoring, and outcomes, indicating these courses have met the highest standards for training comprehension and quality.
