Learn. Achieve. Succeed.

Stay competitive and successful with the gold standard in training excellence. The Cleaning Industry Training Standard (CITS) provides you with a means of proving your skills and experience, so you can achieve continued and sustainable success.

CITS is the premier training standard in the cleaning industry that gives you the right credentials to achieve the recognition you deserve. The goal of the certification program is to increase professionalism and to validate your efforts to your employer and peers.

How It Works

To become CITS certified, you must first pass a pre-requisite exam called Cleaning 101. This exam covers the basic necessities for what it takes to work as a frontline cleaning professional.

After passing Cleaning 101, you can participate in any of the advanced specialty training programs, all of which have been verified by ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association. Each verified program meets a rigorous standard covering everything you need to know for that category.

It is also possible to receive a CITS Master’s designation. To receive a Master’s, you must pass an exam and receive certification in seven specific categories, noted above with an asterisk (*).
