Laundry Processing and Operations: October 17-21, 2016
Textile Care Services: May 1-5, 2017
ALM’s Laundry and Linen College is the most comprehensive training program in the industry for textile care services professionals. Though it may sound too good to be true that ALL essential industry training for directing operations of a laundry or textile services department could be found through one program, take a look at the curriculum (link to course descriptions) and see for yourself. Participants typically include a mix of those new to director level positons, seeking promotions, industry veterans and vendors looking to round out their base of knowledge.
The college is comprised of two focused sessions. In the fall, classes are on processing and operations starting with equipment, safety, and maintenance, and rounded out with chemistry in the wash process, energy management, productivity and performance metrics and overall laundry management (disaster recovery, transportation, business development). In the spring, classes in textile care services are offered and include textile basics, textile selection, linen distribution, linen management and par levels, linen replacement budgeting, packrooms, infection prevention and QAPI.
Participants leave the laundry and linen college inspired, motivated, and filled with ideas and new approaches to impact their operations.
