Digital Training & Education (DTE) Committee Update: September 2021
The DT&E Committee develops programs, services, and training to assist our rep and manufacturer members in all areas that have and will have a technological impact on them and their partners. Their initiatives include:
Foodservice Academy is home to our online training programs including Foodservice 101 and Smartphone Video Workshop.
- Foodservice 101: Our hugely successful six-course Foodservice 101 curriculum has educated over 300 reps and manufacturers, receiving 5-star reviews. If you have staff members with under 5 years experience, you need to sign them up for Foodservice 101—the industry’s only training on the channel and channel partners. Cost is $299 for all 6 one-hour courses.
And as the industry continues to see recovery from COVID, the committee is working on getting the word out on Foodservice 101 to non-MAFSI members including dealers, consultants, service companies, and non-member manufacturers. Please encourage your channel partners to check it out at foodservice101.org.
- Smartphone Video Workshop: Also hugely successful, is our Smartphone Video Workshop—the only program in the industry for how-to training making marketing and demo videos on your smartphone—an absolute must for all reps and manufacturers looking to expand their reach on social platforms. Cost is $349 per company.
