Why Fe3?

Instructor Avatar
Managing energy and water use is a good business strategy
The commercial food service industry is losing several billion dollars’ in profits a year to energy and water waste. Training foodservice professionals to treat energy and water like other commodities and giving them the skills to manage their utilities, like they manage food costs, has the potential to return those billions back to the bottom line.
Online education is an effective way to train the diverse foodservice workforce
Utilities, culinary schools, restaurants, institutions, and professional organizations all face the challenge of how to train a diverse, busy, and mobile workforce. Fe3 is the first cost-effective way to provide foodservice-specific efficiency training that reaches across the entire industry. Based on over 30 years of lab and field work, energy surveys and design consultations by the industry experts at fishnick, the Fe3 curriculum is straightforward, practical and built for results.
Recognition as a Foodservice Energy Efficiency Expert shows dedication to effective design and operations
Foodservice operators increasingly understand the bottom-line benefits of efficient design and operations and they are searching for professionals who can help them reach their goals. Fe3 certification is a way to demonstrate skills-based knowledge to clients and employers. Fe3 certified professionals can use the Fe3 designation and logo in their signature block and on marketing materials. Restaurants with Fe3 certified staff can exhibit the Fe3 logo onsite to show customers their dedication to sustainability and energy efficiency.
