Cleaning professionals can now obtain their certification over the weekend with IEHA’s traveling Boot Camp program.
Westerville, OH — The International Executive Housekeepers Association (IEHA), a leading non-profit organization providing education and resources to individuals who manage professional cleaning operations, today announced that it will take its Professional Education Credentialing Program (PECP) on the road. IEHA’s 2016 Boot Camp Road Show will provide individuals looking to obtain their certification with a comprehensive two-day, instructor-led training session covering the curriculum included in IEHA’s PECP. At the conclusion of the review, attendees will test to receive their certification. 

“More organizations are starting to understand the impact of cleaning on health and business, and we’re starting to see an increase in the demand for our PECP program as result. Our certification program is one of the most widely recognized in the industry, with organizations such as the U.S. government, mandating that their employees and contractors maintain a Certified Executive Housekeeper (CEH) or Registered Executive Housekeeper (REH) designation,” said IEHA President Michael Patterson, REH. “We hope this Road Show will make our certification program more accessible to busy cleaning professionals who are ready to take the next step in their career.”
