Pineapple Academy’s proprietary micro-training strategy focuses on the mobility of the deskless workforce and brings learning to their existing workflow.

Micro-Training Course

Like songs in a playlist, micro-training courses are the building blocks of our training which can be grouped together to achieve a larger, overall training objective.

  • 5-Minute or less skills demonstration video(s)
  • Optional: Supporting documents (pdf)
  • Optional: Quiz
  • Example: How to Steel and Sharpen a Knife

Numerous evidence-based studies support the idea that the highest level of learner retention, engagement and overall effectiveness comes from providing learners with short bites of information.

Training Topic

Time is limited when it comes to ongoing training, and designing a training program to fit into a day of unpredictable interruptions is almost impossible. Pineapple Academy takes the guesswork out of training with our hassle-free “playlists” known as training topics.

  • Suggested weekly training assignment
  • Specific group of micro-training courses
  • Total training time of 50-Minutes or less
  • Example: Kitchen Basics

#1 key to a successful training implementation is to make training a priority. Our recommended best practice for all operators is to allow their team members to use the first 10 minutes (or less) immediately after clocking in for the shift to complete their micro-training assignment. Training topics make it easy to do a little each day.

Training Series

For operators who prefer the “plug and play” option, or to assist those who are designing a micro-training program for the first time, our turnkey solution, known as a Training Series, is just for you!

  • A collection of courses organized by topic to achieve a specific training goal
  • Continuing Education hours are available at the Training Series level for Certified Dietary Managers with the individual training format
  • Example: Job Role Training – Cook

There are many applications for a training series, including job role training, career development programs, segment specific regulatory compliance solutions, company and department-level onboarding… the possibilities are endless.
