Alliance Laundry Systems Launches Industry-Leading Training Program

Program designed to help service technicians stay up-to-date on the latest laundry technologies & services.

RIPON, Wis. -- Oct. 12, 2010 -- Alliance Laundry Systems announced today that it has launched a new and improved industry-leading training program as part of its continued commitment to Alliances Customer One initiative. Alliance Laundry Systems University (ALSU) focuses on the continuous development and education of Alliance's employees and authorized customers with an emphasis on certification for service technicians.

Alliance is the only laundry manufacturer to offer a training program of this magnitude. ALSU's online training classes are designed to help technicians better understand the operation of equipment components, teaching them how to diagnose and correct issues quickly and accurately. After successfully completing roughly 30 courses and passing a final exam, technicians become certified. To maintain the certification, students must complete three classes every two years.

"Our authorized customers have some of the best trained technicians in the industry. This program has been intentionally designed to build on and enhance their technical skills," said Brenda Henke, Director of Training and Technical Communications. "Every class is created in conjunction with equipment engineers and designers to help increase students' knowledge of Alliance equipment. We've been working on the development of this program for a number of years and are excited about what the new website has to offer students."

ALSU classes train and educate authorized users in technical and soft skills that will improve their performance. Classes are self-paced and end with a graded quiz that tracks each individual's progress. In addition to classroom activities, users have access to an online reference library that includes informational videos and documents.

More than 900 students across the globe have already taken advantage of Alliance's training program. Many of the changes implemented into ALSU came as a result of their feedback. As the program and classes continue to evolve, input from students will continue to be incorporated in an effort to develop the best training curriculum available.
