Green Cleaning University Courses

Like a brick-and-mortar university, ISSA Green Cleaning University (GCU) offers professor-led classes; however, they are on an interactive compact disc to accommodate students’ busy schedules. Class length is between 18 and 40 minutes. Many classes offer additional reading materials or forms and templates to help amplify or implement the material discussed in class.

The current offering of courses begins with a basic introduction to the concepts of green and green cleaning and covers topics ranging from building the green cleaning bundle to the sales process, overcoming objections, and setting up a pilot project. We also introduce organizations such as the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), Green Seal®, Hospitals for a Healthy Environment, the Healthy Schools Campaign, and more.

The ISSA Green Cleaning Professional designation requires students complete five core courses, listed below.

The current list of classes is:
