Spartan Chemical Company, Inc., formulator and manufacturer of sustainable cleaning and sanitation solutions for the industrial and institutional market, announced that CleanCheck Training System has been verified through International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA) as a Cleaning Industry Training Standard (CITS) Advanced Certification Program for cleaning professionals.

CITS verification demonstrates that the programs comply with the training best practice elements as outlined in the CITS Standards and are committed to promoting professionalism and increasing pride within the cleaning industry. The following CleanCheck modules (Hard Floor Care, Health Care/Acute Care/Long Term Care, Carpet Care, Restroom Care, Safety/Hazcom, Classroom, and Office) have been verified by ISSA as advanced specialty training programs.

“Training is a core focus at Spartan and key benefit provided to Spartan customers,” said John Swigart, President, Spartan Chemical Company. “Trained workers are safer, more productive, and more efficient.
