Green Cleaning University

Welcome to ISSA Green Cleaning University

ISSA Green Cleaning University (GCU) is a program for individuals interested in developing their ability to sell green cleaning products and services. GCU also offers an industry title that recognizes sales and training professionals for their green expertise: ISSA Green Cleaning Professional.

GCU’s 10 comprehensive courses are applicable to professionals from all segments of the industry: manufacturers, distributors, service providers, building managers and owners, advocates, government officials, and others.

Our goal is to provide sales and other industry professionals with the information and insights they need to succeed in the marketplace.

ISSA GCU represents a partnership between ISSA and GCU, which was founded by Stephen P. Ashkin and David Holly. ISSA’s partnership with GCU leverages the strengths of both organizations and promotes the adoption of cleaning programs that protect human health while minimizing overall environmental impacts.

GCU can even help CIMS ISSA Certification Experts (I.C.E.) achieve the professional credits they need toward re-certification!  Specifically, those professionals who receive the "Green Cleaning Professional Designation" by graduating from Green Cleaning University will receive all 30 required credits.
