Local Organization Gives Custodial Staff a Second Chance

After a long battle to provide better public health services for Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) staff, the Leadership Training Institute (LTI) and Cleaning Management Institute of America recently announced the National Certification of 10 PGCPS custodial technicians.

With this level of certification in five categories, LTI, which provides safe and natural Environmental Protection Agency-certified standard training, has made PGCPS the only system in the state of Maryland to acquire this level of specialized instruction.

“What this means is that everyday citizens for worked as janitors with PGCPS school systems now have the skill set to advance their careers,” said Shawn Muhammad, CEO of LTI. “Now they can go on if they wish and apply for jobs through agencies like the EPA or higher level school system maintenance because of their skill set, learning how to properly and adequately and safely clean school systems, one of the hardest places to address germs overall.”

The technicians who have earned their nationally recognized certification also gained 12.5 continuing educational units should they want to expand their degrees.

“This program is also approved by The International Sports Sciences Association so we are literally creating advanced jobs for people within our own community,” Muhammad said.

In addition to skill training to local custodial staff, LTI also offers Environmental Maintenance/Green Cleaning Veterans Training, which allows a large population of homeless veterans a chance to also earn a National Certification in Environmental Maintenance.

Established to offer culturally relevant programs and initiatives that develop human potential and character in each client, LTI looks to effectively address urban pathologies.

The institute’s training provides participants with a comprehensive program targeting behavior modification and technical training which enables the participants to earn certification upon completion.

The institute emphasizes growth and progress and is based on the belief that each customer’s “needs are of the utmost importance, committed to success.”
