DLI On the Road

The Drycleaning & Laundry Institute’s School of Drycleaning Technology can go on the road to your location and bring you the Introduction to Drycleaning course, as well as other residential classes. Teaching the course in the field offers plant owners the opportunity to send their employees to the class without having to pay expensive airfares, hotel accommodations, or even have them have to leave their families to learn the basics of the drycleaning business.

The course provides an understanding for completing many tasks in the drycleaning business. From sorting loads to pressing cleaned garments and all points in-between, students will walk away better prepared to handle the hurdles of daily life in a drycleaning plant.

The One Week Introduction to Drycleaning course is geared toward providing individuals with a solid foundation for professional cleaning. It is ideal for people who are new to the industry. The course covers the basics, including:

  • Sorting loads for drycleaning
  • Cleaning garments, including silk, satin, and more
  • Operating a drycleaning machine
  • Removing stains, including coffee, ink, grease and more
  • Pressing pants, coats and skirts
  • Using tensioning equipment to improve finishing quality

The course is $995 for DLI members and counts toward 10 Seal of Approval points.
