The International Executive Housekeepers Association’s (IEHA’s) Professional Education Credentialing Program (PECP) is now available online 

The International Executive Housekeepers Association’s (IEHA’s) Professional Education Credentialing Program (PECP) is now available online in unabridged form for IEHA Members seeking to obtain their Certified Executive Housekeeper (CEH) or Registered Executive Housekeeper (REH) designation.

  “This exhaustive compendium of professional housekeeping information, a virtual encyclopedia of management and technical expertise, is now available 24/7 from any Web browser for aspiring and current CEH and REH certified members,” says Beth Risinger, IEHA CEO and Executive Director.

  “We believe the access this provides our members seeking certification and advanced education will help them to succeed in a very competitive environment,” says Sarah Larsen, IEHA Deputy Director and Education Director. “It’s all there, available by topic, and searchable, enabling IEHA members to complete some 330 hours of study at their own pace - or take refresher courses - whenever and wherever they have Internet access.”

  The online Managing for Effect (MFE) Series included in the PECP consists of five modules. Review materials and module exams are also online where IEHA members can test their knowledge and prepare for the final proctored exam (offline).

  “Our internal surveys have shown that IEHA education increases job skills, confidence, and earnings, while yielding a 100 to 1000 percent or greater return on investment for the majority of our members,” said Larsen.  “By placing our curriculum and other tools online, we hope to enable our members to reach their professional goals in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible.”

   IEHA, with assistance from qualified persons, will draft two Integrated Cleaning and Measurement (ICM) Modules in August 2010 that will become part of IEHA’s Professional Education Credentialing Program (PECP) curriculum, as well as provide the raw material for the ICM Certification Framework Committee to do its work (the committee will offer input on the module drafts and IEHA will finalize the certification curriculum based on that input).
