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 on the ability 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 own training facility equipped with 4 training kitchens allows us to ensure that the students receive the essential live hands-on time needed with the equipment.
