Training for Luxury Housekeeping - Source Training

The first luxury housekeeping courses of their kind

Master luxury housekeeping and specialist interior skills with the top online training courses designed by industry experts

You might be thinking you don’t need to learn how to clean or do laundry

Maybe you think you already know how to do both or you’re expecting to learn on the job. Unfortunately, that’s what most think, but the reality is quite different. From day one your job will include long hours and some pretty unglamorous situations. The job is fast paced, leaving little time to learn and zero room for costly errors. 

Expectations within the luxury industry are also incredibly high. This is an industry where cleaning and laundry are a refined and particular skill, and something you will be doing 85% of your time, so you must know what you’re doing and do it right.


Reasons why people working in luxury interiors and housekeeping love our Source training courses:

Designed by top industry experts

Learn essential knowledge and skills you’ll use everyday in your job

Take the course from anywhere and at your own pace

Our Courses



The Cleaning Course consists of six modules, which cover everything from basic cleaning principles, to choosing the right chemicals for the task. It includes our Eye for Detail Challenge and access to our Facebook group. Essential  for anyone in housekeeping.



The Laundry Course includes four modules, covering everything from how to identify fabrics and weaves, to stain removal. This will give you the foundation knowledge you need to wash, treat and dry any type of fabric with confidence. It includes access to our Facebook group.



When you’re trying to choose the right products to clean with, that are also safe for the environment, it’s easy to feel lost when faced with complicated scientific jargon and marketing ploys. 6 simple steps to choosing the most planet-friendly products on the market and know the brands to put your faith in.



The Complete Collection includes both the cleaning and laundry courses, our “I want to go eco, but where do I start?” guide, a bonus Eye For Detail Challenge and access to both our cleaning and our laundry Facebook groups. This is a must-have combination.

About Source Training

Source training founder, Sheila is an ex-stewardess, mother of two boys, grandmother and founder of two successful businesses.

Sheila worked as a stewardess for a number of years, has always had a deep love for the ocean, and is an environmentalist at heart. It was this love and passion to preserve nature which led Sheila to launch her first business, EYS – Environmental Yacht Services – a supplier of eco-friendly products to yachts across the world.

From her own experience as a stewardess and from supplying to many luxury yachts, Sheila noticed there was a clear gap in knowledge and learning for laundry and cleaning personnel. This is why she set out to raise the standards, by creating Source training. She enlisted the help of other top experts within luxury cleaning and laundry to help create truly unique and insightful courses with you in mind.

If you are wondering about the quality of these courses, just check out the online demos. One tip: the cleaning course is quite long, so don't try to do it all in one go. Well worth the investment!
