There is so much at a lodging property that can go wrong; maintenance employees are the first to respond when something needs to be fixed and kept in top shape. The Certified Maintenance Employee designation recognizes that these employees know how to maintain the physical property, whether it is replacing faucets, fixing holes in the wall, or performing regular preventive maintenance. Their extensive skills ensure that guests stay in a well-maintained property.
The certification is supported by the START and quickSTART (Skills, Tasks, and Results Training) programs. START resources present concise instructions for training new or prospective employees on how to perform key tasks correctly, along with the general hospitality knowledge and soft skills needed in the hospitality industry.”
