DLI On the Road drycleaning class to visit Oakland
The Drycleaning and Laundry Institute will be offering another round of its “On the Road” series this November when the association heads to Oakland to present its five-day “Introduction to Drycleaning” class.
The course is ideally suited for newcomers to the industry or those with little experience and provides students with a solid foundation for the basic fundamentals of drycleaning. DLI began the On the Road program to give plant owners the opportunity to send their employees to the class without having to pay airfares, hotel accommodations, or leave their families to learn the basics of the drycleaning business.
With DLI instructor Brian Johnson, topics to be covered will range from sorting loads to pressing and all the stages in the middle.
Those who attend will learn about cleaning garments including satin, silk and more; load classification; operating a drycleaning machine; removing stains including coffee, ink, grease and more; pressing pants, coats and skirts; and using tensioning equipment to improve finishing quality.
The program will be hosted at James Mosley Equipment, located at 4032 E. 15th St. in Oakland, CA. It will take place from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from Monday through Friday, Nov. 5 to 9.
The cost is $995 per person for CCA members and $1,495 per person for non-members. The course counts toward 10 Seal of Approval points.
Those interested in attending should register as soon as possible. Contact DLI’s School of Drycleaning Technology for more information by calling (800) 638-2627 or the California Cleaners Association office at (916) 239-4070.
