What Makes The Institute Unique?

New Courses

Deli Clerk 1 – Food Slicer

The food slicer is one of the most recognized pieces of equipment in the deli department. Not surprising, as deli clerks use it throughout their shift to fill customer orders. However, to use any piece of equipment safely, you must familiarize yourself with it and how to use it. In this course, you’ll learn about a food slicer — specifically its components and the proper way to operate and clean one.

Deli Clerk 2 – Equipment

In the deli department, you will use many different types of equipment to prep, cook and hold prepared foods. Some of this equipment is easy to use, while some may require special attention. Always follow your store’s policy when handling and operating equipment. In this course, you’ll learn about commonly used equipment and the purpose it serves within the deli department.

Deli Clerk 3 – Display Cases

Display cases, located within your store’s deli area, showcase a wide array of cold or hot products. Cases may be either full-service, requiring the assistance of a trained associate to fill a customer’s order, or self-service, allowing the customer to pick and choose from the products available. In this course, you’ll learn about full and self-service cases, and how they keep displayed food safe for consumption.
