CHICAGO, August 31, 2020 â€“ 

As the recognized authority in health care environmental services, and as a professional membership group of the American Hospital Association, the Association for the Health Care Environment (AHE) has developed two eLearning certificate programs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

AHE has developed and curated a wide portfolio of complementary resources for members and the environmental services community at large in response to COVID-19, and will release the Pathways to Clean certificate program in late September. In addition, AHE today released the Ready. Set. Clean. certificate program in response to an outpouring of inquiries from the hospitality industry looking for the resources necessary to educate and train their frontline staff to achieve hygienically clean and safe guest spaces that contribute to combating COVID-19, and that reaffirm customer confidence.

The Pathways to Clean certificate program and the Ready. Set. Clean. certificate program will both include webinars, presentations and checklists related to COVID-19, infection prevention strategies, cleaning, disinfection, sanitation, emerging pathogens, and preparedness for biological events. Facilities that complete the programs’ trainings will earn a certificate of completion and gain access to the communications toolkit to make their accomplishment known, affirm their commitment to hospital caliber clean, and assure guests that their facility is hygienically clean and safe.

This content was made possible in part by generous sponsorships from Kimberly-Clark Professional, Tork, Cintas, and Rubbermaid.

The Ready. Set. Clean. certificate program delivers evidence-based health care caliber cleaning best practices customized for the hospitality industry, and is currently available for purchase.
