See What Our Participants Have To Say

Good presentation! I learned things I did not know. The information that I found most useful was calculations for determining labor hours, production record information and inventory control.

– Financial Management for Managers VILT – 08/05/2021

I learned ways I can incorporate a family style meal dynamic into my program. The allergy portion of the training was the information that I found most useful.

-Introduction to Happy Mealtimes in Child Care VILT – 05/08/2021

Great presentation, and I enjoyed the breakout sessions and getting to collaborate with other educators.

-Introduction to Happy Mealtimes in Child Care VILT – 05/08/2021

Thank you for the training so helpful end enjoyable. I’m so glad that I was able to attend this training which will help me my family and my facility to have a healthy environment.

I really enjoyed the instructor and this class. I learned things that I did not know.

– Food Safety in Child Care VILT – 07/10/2021

The many examples and problems worked throughout the course ensured each participant was easily able to grasp the concepts taught. It was also extremely helpful to be taught all the features of ZOOM conferencing.

– Basic Culinary Math VILT – 04/24/2021

This helped participants not only navigate the training with ease but will
help us all in the many ZOOM trainings that will take place in the future due to the pandemic.

– Basic Culinary Math VILT – 04/24/2021

The information provided on determining the scaling factor was particularly helpful.

The following equipment is required for the virtual sessions:

  • To participate in a virtual training, a camera, microphone, and speakers are required. Most new laptops, smartphones, and tablets are equipped with internal cameras, microphones, and speakers. These internal devices are sufficient for use in our virtual trainings.

  • However, for the best experience, we suggest participants use an external headset with a built-in microphone. This may include your Apple earbuds or third party headphones with microphone. Headsets with built-in microphones provide listening privacy, reduce microphone feedback, and transmit higher quality audio.

  • If you have a pair of headphones that do not have a built-in microphone, your computer, smartphone, or tablet internal microphone will suffice, but to minimize microphone feedback, we ask that you still listen to the audio with your headphones plugged in.

  • If you do not have a pair of headphones with or without a built-in microphone, you may still complete the training using the internal camera, microphone, and speakers of your device.
