Factory Training

Thank you for your interest in Star Holdings factory products training. All trainings in 2018 will be held at the Southbend manufacturing plant located in Fuquay Varina, NC.

There are a variety of class offerings in 2018 so please make your class selection carefully. Classes focusing exclusively on Southbend products will continue this year. Star Holdings brands (Star, Lang, Toastmaster, Holman, Wells) will have designated dates for training focusing exclusively on Star Holdings products. In addition, classes will be scheduled focusing on ALL brands (Southbend, Star, Lang, Toastmaster, Desmon, Holman, Wells).

Factory training class space is limited and training classes fill very quickly. Training requests are requests only and will not guarantee acceptance. An email will be sent to the address submitted on this form indicating the status of your training request. If your selected class is full, a response will indicate as such and advise you of possible options. Once a class has reached capacity, a waiting list will be kept on file and filled with any cancelations on a first come / first service basis with names on the waiting list.
