Lincolnwood, IL, USA-ISSA has announced the second group of individuals to achieve certification as official Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) ISSA Certification Experts (I.C.E.) in 2008. This brings the total number of experts to 253 individuals representing 43 U.S. states and Canadian provinces as well as Mexico and the Caribbean.

Becoming a certified CIMS Expert positions an individual to provide training or consulting services to those cleaning organizations interested in complying with the Standard and preparing to certify to CIMS-a consensus-based industry standard that sets forth the universally accepted management principles proven to be the hallmarks of well-managed and customer-centered cleaning organizations.

“The ISSA Certification Expert program continues to gain tremendous momentum, and we could not be more pleased with its reception in the community,” stated ISSA Director of CIMS Dan Wagner. “I look forward to seeing our newly certified individuals follow in the footsteps of those professionals who have achieved this prestigious designation in the past and are presently offering a value-added service by actively assisting customers in preparing for CIMS certification.”

To become a CIMS Expert, professionals within the cleaning industry must attend a one-day workshop and pass an examination regarding the management elements contained in the Standard. The CIMS Expert designation is earned by and applies to an individual professional and not to an entire organization. One additional I.C.E. workshop will be held in 2008: in Las Vegas, NV, USA, on September 8 (in conjunction with ISSA/INTERCLEAN® North America), and registration for the session is now open!
