At the request of VSR (Association for Cleaning Research) the foundation organizes and manages all VSR training. For that purpose the foundation has teamed up with SVS, the training institute for Cleaning Companies and Services (SVS B.V.) who delivers the actual training.
In the present structure of training every participant is trained in a modular system.
The three different modules are:
- VSR-DCS level 2 – Daily Checking System
- VSR-QMS level 3 – Quality Inspection
- VSR-QMS level 4 - Inventory and basis statistics
Every module consists of a two-day-training and is concluded with a written exam. To obtain a level 3 diploma one needs to hold a level 2 diploma; and one needs to hold a level 3 before one can obtain a level 4 diploma.
Application for the training
Candidates can apply for training programmes by sending the application form to SVS. This form can be downloaded on the SVS SVS-Website:
This applies to training in Dutch only. For training in other languages by other training institutes contact the SSK secretariat.
All training is delivered by highly qualified and experienced teachers. Both trainers and examiners are certified by the training institute.
The foundation receives the list of qualified candidates from the training institute. The foundation then sends every qualified candidate a diploma.
The foundation sends the diploma’s together with the Application form registration and ID-card inspectors and the ‘Code of conduct’ for VSR-QMS inspectors.
The qualified candidate returns the filled out and signed form together with the underwritten code of conduct to the foundation and proof of cleaning experience.
The foundation then furnishes an ID-card and sends this to the applicant.
Recognition and registration
The VSR-QMS inspectors that have underwritten the code of conduct and have received an ID-card from the foundation are registered and by that are formally recognized by the foundation.
The registrations (see documents SSK 016 and SSK 017 Registration of recognized VSR Quality inspector levels 3 and 4) are publicly accessible on the foundation’s website.
