The vending repair technician training program at Edison Fareira High School in Philadelphia, Pa. will move to the Randolph Skills Center in Philadelphia.
The Randolph Skills Center is located on Henry Avenue about four miles from Edison Fareira High School, according to Bud Burke, who is an advisory board member for the program.
Burke told VendingMarketWatch that the board was not satisfied with the manner in which the program was being managed at Edison Fareira High School.
At the Randolph Skills Center, Burke said the program will have the necessary support from the school’s administration.
Many vending equipment manufacturers donate equipment to the program. The program is the only vocational technician training program for vending in the U.S.
