Laundry & Linen College

The Laundry & Linen College is the premier resource for laundry training and education. For over 30 years, the college has provided training in laundry processing and linen management for individuals in the U.S. and abroad. This program is recognized nationally for developing skilled, informed, and accomplished laundry professionals.

COVID-19 has affected every part of our lives, but it shouldn't get in the way of you being the best textile care services professional you can be! We at ALM didn't want to disappoint those who already registered for a session, so we've made both sessions blended learning opportunities. That means you may attend sessions virtually from your home or workplace, as well as complete a hands-on class project with your small workgroup online.

To enable attendees to learn all the Laundry & Linen College has to offer, we are spreading both sessions over two weeks each, with live presentations of the material from 10 a.m.-noon, and 1-3 p.m. every day. Workgroups will collaborate later in the day at times that best work for group members.

For full details about both sessions, please visit ALM's Laundry & Linen College page. To register for the session you want, please click the appropriate button below. 

Textile Care Services will be Monday, September 14 through Friday, September 18, and Monday, September 21 through Thursday, September 24. In the session, participants will learn about textile selection, linen management, pack room management, and textile budgeting.

Laundry Processing and Operations will be Monday, September 21 through Friday, September 25, and Monday, September 28 through Friday, October 2. During the session, participants will learn about equipment selection, preventative maintenance, key performance indicators in production and plant operations, and safety.
