NEFA Pressing Class a Great Success
NEFA Pressing Class a Great Success

NEFA started the year off right with a great Drycleaning Finishing Program held in Quincy, MA. 

“We are looking to make Education a cornerstone of our menu of membership benefits in 2019”, stated Peter Blake, NEFA Executive Director, “and this got us started on a very positive note.  This is just the beginning of our program and we are looking to having more classes, and more educational opportunities throughout our area.  Next up are Professional Stain Removal 101 and then an Advanced Stain Removal program.  Plans are underway to bring the pressing class to upstate New York in the near future.  This is very exciting for us.”

Professional Drycleaning Finishing
This program was limited to only 12 attendees as the hands -on program was designed for maximum personal instruction.  The sold-out program featured attendees from Massachusetts and Connecticut, and all of who raved about the program.

“This was terrific, just what we needed,” observed attendee Art Wald.  “We certainly got a lot out of it, and really were impressed with the instructor and the program.  We would definitely send more people to the next one, and would even like to host the program.”
The class was led by Training Expert David Grippi, who also had some assistance from long-time training expert Ken Grippi.  The class focussed on speed, production -- and maintaining quality.

“This was a great class”, concluded Blake, “and David did an excellent job sharing his expertise and experience with the group.  He was able to stress the importance of not sacrificing quality for production, while demonstrating ways to be more effective.  It is amazing how just a few tips can increase overall efficiency.”

Dependable Cleaners was a perfect place to hold the program as there was ample space around the presses, and afforded attendees the ability to use the equipment and demonstrate the skills being taught.  Keep watch for the next programs coming soon.
