Dry Cleaning and Laundry Workers
In most shops, laundry and dry cleaning workers learn their
skills on the job. The only requirement is usually a high school
diploma or its equivalent. Computers are being used more and more
in this industry, so computer familiarity is a plus. High school
courses that might be helpful include chemistry, computers,
textiles, machine shop, sewing, and clothing construction. If you
plan to operate your own dry cleaners, you'll be interacting
constantly with customers, so it's a good idea to also hone your
communication skills by taking English and speech classes.
