If you want a clean install, best practice is to use Disk Utility to erase the drive first. I prefer to create a USB with Disk Utility and the OS installer on it, and use that to erase the hard drive. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201372


Not sure how the technician did it, but it sounds like you have a fresh, clean install of El Capitan now.
