About

 

 

 

custodiantraining.com is in partnership with Weiss Bros., a distributor in Maryland.  Every day we have conversations with clients who struggle with training. We understand the cost of untrained staff and that approximately 80% of a facilities spend is on labor, not products. With the help of our clients, Weiss Bros. has developed a training program that is easy to implement in any facility.

Training will save a facility more than they can save on products. Below is a list of "True Costs" that can be reduced or eliminated by implementing this training program.
