BIO: Dan began his career in the foodservice equipment industry in 1979. Since then, he has filled the roles of Tech in Training, Service Technician, Supervisor Technician, Assistant Service Manager, Director of Operations, Director of Service, and Company Co-owner. Dan’s favorite part about his job as CFESA’s Director of Training is giving back and seeing the technicians reach the “ah-ha” moment, where the information being taught becomes knowledge learned.

TECHNICIAN TRAINING CLASSES

CFESA sets the Standard for Service Excellence. One of the ways we achieve excellence is through our custom designed continuing education and training programs.

CFESA has developed five extensive training programs for foodservice equipment technicians.

Our technician training programs cover the basic elements of gas, electric, steam, water and refrigeration. All CFESA technician training programs include classroom and hands-on education and testing to identify, troubleshoot and repair problems on many types of equipment. Hands-on training is provided utilizing our custom-designed modules in addition to the equipment our manufacturer partners donate for our use in training sessions. The flexibility of having our training facility equipped with four training kitchens allows us to ensure that the students receive the essential live hands-on time needed with the equipment.
