About the Training Program

Our training program covers topics like Pear Varieties and Growing Areas, Pear Handling and Receiving, Pear Merchandising and Pear Nutrition. With this knowledge, you will become a Pear Expert: a smart pear merchandiser and a valuable resource to your department and your shoppers.

The training program will take about half an hour, and you'll earn a Pear Merchandising Certificate after successfully completing a short quiz at the end.

There are a total of four courses so you can take a course and then come back to finish when your schedule allows.

When you are finished take the quiz to show us what you know.
