Dishwasher Training Made Easy

A Dishwasher is an important part of every meal served and every guest’s experience in your restaurant – as they take great pride in making sure every meal is served with clean plates, dishes, glasses, silverware, and all other utensils. Dishwasher Training Made Easy will help your restaurant maintain its high standards as your dishwashers learn adapt to your values – and desire to do the very best job possible for your guests every day.

The guidelines presented in the Dishwasher Training Made Easy program have been established to help you in your effort to instill these high standards within your Dishwashers. Along with the hands-on training you will provide, this training will provide answers to questions your Dishwashers will have regarding the operating procedures for your restaurant.

Key “Dishwasher Training Made Easy” learning objectives:
