Internal cleanroom cleaning training

The cleanroom courses teach the basics of cleaning and disinfection. Employees are made aware of the extremely demanding nature of cleaning and the responsibility they will bear in the future. The courses should be designed in such a way that the participants can put as much as possible into practice and the learning content is presented pictorially.

A cleanroom training and a maintenance cleaning training have different focuses. A cleanroom training refers to the training of employees working in cleanrooms where it is important to maintain an extremely clean environment. Such training focuses on emphasizing the importance of cleanliness, hygiene, and sterility, as well as the various cleaning techniques and procedures required to maintain cleanliness. It is also essential to explain to employees what a cleanroom is and why cleaning must be performed as demonstrated in the training sessions. The employees should know the difference to classical maintenance cleaning in order to be aware of their responsibility.

Course design

The courses should be designed in such a way that the participants can put as much as possible into practice and that the learning content is presented pictorially. It is important to ensure that what is seen and learned is linked to daily work. In addition, employees are used to moving around and working. Sitting still in theory is very difficult for most of them. Therefore, it is an advantage if the courses are held in small groups and short time intervals. This means that the individual theory blocks should be kept short and directly linked to practice.

Learning style

The learning style of each individual is determined by attitudes, behaviors and habits and ultimately influences how information is absorbed and processed. To make the training efficient, the course instructors should know in advance where the employees have already worked and what previous knowledge they have. The background of the employees also plays a role, as experiences from childhood and adolescence shape how they think and act. An atmosphere of trust and understanding is crucial so that employees feel comfortable and understood.

Course structure

Cleanroom employees are cleaning specialists with a great deal of responsibility. They must have a good knowledge of German (B1) and be able to think logically and apply what they have learned directly. To complete the cleanroom cleaning course, the basic course on maintenance cleaning is a mandatory prerequisite. The employees must already be familiar with the basic cleaning methods and agents. The cleanroom course then builds on this basic knowledge.

First, the work clothes are introduced, and the correct entry is practiced. Employees must wear special protective clothing that prevents particles and microorganisms from entering the cleanroom from their clothing and body. This includes sterile clothing, gloves, headgear, goggles and face masks. Next, the disinfection products, their dosage and disinfection methods are discussed. The disinfection methods differ from the “classical” cleaning methods. An example of this is that a color system is not used since disposable products are used in the majority of cases.  In addition, the surface must be moistened for a certain time to ensure hygiene. This is a big difference from maintenance cleaning. At the end of the course, work safety is discussed. Employees need to be trained on how to follow cleanroom guidelines and protocols. They need to understand how they should behave in the cleanroom to minimize contamination.

The cleanroom course is often attended by employees on a one-time basis. Depending on customer requirements, employees may have to take the course again. Annual training courses are offered with focus topics (e.g., handling and communication with the customer). The main topics depend on the audits and quality controls.

In summary, successful training in the cleanroom is only possible if the different learning styles and prior knowledge of the employees are considered and an atmosphere of trust and understanding is created. The training should be designed to be practical, so that the linking of the new learning with daily work is ensured. It is also important that employees understand the importance of cleanliness, hygiene, and sterility in the cleanroom. Continuing education courses focusing on specific topics are necessary to ensure a good quality of work.
