Foodservice equipment specification platform Specifi has announce a new initiative for commercial kitchen designers, project managers and sales people whose positions have been made redundant.
Any catering equipment specialists with AutoCAD experience, that have worked for a UK dealer, and who have found that their position has been made redundant, will be offered the opportunity to hone their skills for 60 days on the Specifi Design Plus platform, which includes an OEM version of AutoCAD 2020.
In addition, the Specifi UK team will host weekly training sessions to get these individuals up and running. At the end of the course there will be a short exam to become a Specifi Certified User.
Specifi vice president of sales for UK and Ireland, Nic Banner, said: “Specifi is known for empowering commercial kitchen designers with state-of-the-art tools.
“If we can help to ease the burden, and help kitchen design specialists to learn new skills on our platforms we are happy to do that to fully support our industry.”
Specifi CEO Bob Wolters commented: “The world is going digital. Our business is based on helping designers, consultants and dealers learn and prosper from going to a digital model. We will do what is needed to help out those that have found themselves in this unfortunate position.
“The industry we serve is continuing to evolve in exciting ways. Specifi is proud to be helping lead the way. This initiative is just another example of how we can help everyone involved in the foodservice equipment and commercial kitchen design industry.”
