Life is a stage…
and we’ve been trained to clean it

Training and Qualifications

Training is the single biggest factor in making a good cleaner, and most kiwi cleaners get no formal training…

CrestClean is the largest private trainer of cleaning personnel in New Zealand. Each year we host more than 200 training events for our personnel nationwide. We’ve invested in comprehensive training for all personnel which covers cleaning skills and processes, Health and Safety, and hygienic practices. Personnel are upskilled annually and regular auditing is carried out by CrestClean’s Quality Assurance Co-ordinators.
