In response to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, MTEC will launch a new program called, Clean it Right, Training for the Tourism, Hospitality and Retail Industry, on June 1, 2020.

Clean it Right, is an online training program designed to provide awareness and education on cleaning your facility. There are three custom modules:

  1. Hotels, Motels and Bed & Breakfasts
  2. Restaurants and Food Services
  3. Retail Businesses

This training will raise awareness and educate participants on:

  • the necessity to have all staff aware and involved in cleaning
  • types of cleaning solutions
  • the difference between cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting
  • what happens when things are not cleaned properly
  • all the areas that should be cleaned and disinfected
  • the frequency in which they need to be cleaned
  • and much more.

It is important to note that this session is NOT a program to teach participants HOW to be cleaners, or to replace internal policies and procedures. It is an awareness and education program that considers our current situation given COVID-19, but will also be a program that has long term benefits for business. The commitment to a clean and safe environment will give your business a competitive edge.

Participants will then be tested on the materials and must receive 100% to pass to ensure they have understood the information and have the knowledge to provide a clean and safe environment for customers and employees.

Individuals that pass the test will receive a temporary certificate and have a wallet sized, laminated card mailed to them. Businesses that train all of their cleaning staff will receive a window decal to show the public they are committed to provide a clean and safe environment.

The Clean it Right program – will be FREE for tourism, hospitality and retail business until June 1, 2021.
