Today (Dec. 11) marks the launch of ISSA's free online educational video series

ISSA, the association for the cleaning industry worldwide, is launching a new online Educational Quick Clips series of cleaning industry and business management videos on December 11. The first Quick Clip will feature Steve Ashkin of the consulting firm The Ashkin Group in an online chat at 2 p.m. EST today.

The Quick Clips series, broadcast on ISSA-TV, the association’s online video community, will provide brief (two-to-five-minute) video clips from an array of industry specific and general business experts on topics ranging from communication skills and sales techniques to green cleaning and workloading. ISSA-TV, ISSA’s online video community, includes multiple video segments regarding such topics as the ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard, ISSA/INTERCLEAN® North America, and a host of other industry videos and product demonstrations.

Starting this December and continuing through 2007, two new clips will debut each month. All new clips are free for the industry to access through the ISSA Web site and will remain archived on the site for repeat use.

“This is just another way for ISSA to bring valuable education right to your company in a quick and easily accessible way,” said ISSA Director of Member Services Anthony Trombetta. “Not only do we encourage you to use these clips for personal and staff training, but we also hope you will take advantage of the online chat with Mr. Ashkin to ask follow-up questions.”

All members of the cleaning and facilities management industries are encouraged to join the live chat with Ashkin about green cleaning, December 11 at 2 p.m. EST. The session will last 45 minutes.
