We will purchase your training materials and cover testing fees, but we do not pay for your time to take the class. It’s a scholarship to learn how professional cleaners clean. And if you have cleaning experience you will still learn a great deal.
What’s in it for you?
1. You become certified by the Maid Training Academy
2. You get a Happy Window Green Cleaning Certification,
3. A $50 bonus for passing the exam,

You must be a certified professional cleaner. If you're already certified by the Maid Training Academy, great. Simply provide a copy of your certificate. If you are not, no problem, we will pay for your certification classes. To put this into perspective, lifeguards have to pass a 25-hour class (The American Red Cross) before they can be hired. Lifeguards typically pay for their training and are not paid to take the class. This is common in many professions. This is why most cleaning companies like us do NOT pay for the time to take the classes.
