When are you scheduling classes?

We’re always enrolling for private, custom classes hosted at our Culinary Center in Dallas, Texas. Take advantage of a curriculum and schedule entirely built around you.

Do I have to come to Dallas?

We encourage on-site training in our Culinary Center so you can take full advantage of the cooking equipment, interactive portions, and in-person instruction, but we can also conduct Avocado University at your location, as a customized, live virtual session, or independently via our self-directed online modules.

What is the difference between the live virtual course and the self-guided online modules?

The self-guided online modules offer the greatest flexibility to learn a standardized selection of avocado knowledge at your own pace. This is a convenient option for individuals or larger enterprises and operations looking to institute avocado certification across widespread teams with personalized certificates as proof of completion. However, only the on-site and virtual course offerings can be strongly customized to provide an avo-driven boost most relevant to you.
