Thousands sign up for new BICSc industry-leading online offering
An innovative virtual training initiative, offering online courses for the professional cleaning sector, has been inundated by thousands of candidates worldwide signing up for the pioneering e-learning sessions.
BICSc (British Institute of Cleaning Science) is celebrating the phenomenal success of its recently-launched BICSc Business Services Virtual Training Suite, which has seen an unprecedented number of candidates register to participate.
As the largest, independent, professional and educational body within the UK cleaning industry, Northampton-based BICSc announced within weeks of unveiling its comprehensive virtual training option, more than 5,000 students, nationwide and globally, had enrolled to access the range of courses.
The Covid crisis accelerated the need for qualified, competent cleaning operatives and highlighted how essential their work is in helping to minimise the spread of the virus.
"The pandemic has meant that the benefits of cleaning & hygiene have been bought to the forefront of people's minds," says Michelle Iland, marketing manager at BICSc. "Cleaning operatives are becoming more visible and, more importantly, more respected.?
"Part of our mission is 'to protect the operative' and one of the best ways to do this is through professional training.??We are delighted that, for the first time, we're able to offer online a range of BICSc accredited and certificated training courses, aimed at making training accessible to all and enhance our ongoing training options, including our in-person training."
As BICSc celebrates its 60th anniversary, the organisation demonstrates how it continues to revolutionise the industry with groundbreaking innovation and pioneering developments, including the announcement of its new BICSc Cleaning Supervisor's Certificate, which launches this month.
BiCSc chief operating officer, Neil Spencer-Cook, adds: "We are extremely excited to announce the introduction of the BICSc Supervisor's Certificate. This will be a 360-degree course and will be one of the most comprehensive courses for a supervisor within the cleaning and hygiene industry. It demonstrates how we continually review our training offering and always look for innovative ways we can make our training more accessible to all."
Designed to be the 'go to' qualification for the industry, the new course aims to provide a robust and well-rounded knowledge for any supervisor of cleaning operatives. As BICSc most comprehensive course to date, it will consist of 10 modules, which can be completed over a 12-month period, allowing course candidates access to a breadth of more than 170 lessons.
