Kendall College, in partnership with the Culinary Research and Education Academy (CREA), the education arm of Cuisine Solutions, has launched the Sous-Vide Technique Master Class. This self-paced online course addresses the modern-day technique of sous-vide and the HACCP safety process, exposing the learner to 40-plus years of research conducted by Bruno Goussault, chief scientist of Cuisine Solutions and founder of CREA.
Upon successful completion of the course, culinary professionals will receive a certificate of participation from Kendall College and a CREA-sponsored certification in the sous-vide technique and sous-vide HACCP safety principles.
For culinary professionals, this sous-vide course provides vital knowledge for growing their culinary repertoire, said Emily Williams Knight, President of Kendall College. The science of sous-vide cooking is used in leading restaurants around the world, but there is a lack of proper training in the technique, especially in the area of safety. Increasing the knowledge of culinary professionals in this area is a must for sous-vide to become a core part of the modern commercial kitchen. What CREA and Kendall College offer is the next level of culinary education for chefs to be competitive in todays top kitchens.
The partnership between CREA and Kendall College will combine four decades of sous-vide know-how with one of the best culinary schools in the world, culminating in this online sous-vide master course, said Gerard Bertholon, Chief Strategy Officer for Cuisine Solutions. The online course provides a wealth of resources for those who wish to be educated about sous-vide, whether they’re learning the basics or enhancing their existing knowledge. Through this course, we will be better able to educate both the novice enthusiast and the food service professional in all aspects of this superior slow-cooking method.
The Sous-Vide Technique Master Class is available for purchase at sousvide.kendall.edu.

Having been a Senior Vice President in several Fortune 500 firms over the past 20 years, Kim Moffa knew what she was getting herself into when she became the first Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) at A. Reddix & Associates (ARDX). Growth through positions in the banking and pharmaceutical industries showed her how important it is to have a business strategy that aligns with the organizations mission. Kim enjoys the challenge of strategic organizational growth and corporate positioning. The quest for challenge landed her at ARDX. She was attracted to ARDX mainly because of her interaction with President and CEO, Angela Reddix, whose background is in organizational development and human resources management. Angela understands business strategy and growth which intrigued Kim and she was hooked. Kim likes the idea of making her mark on a small company with entrepreneurial spirit and ARDX fits the bill.
Being the CAO is a big job even at a small company! Kim oversees talent acquisition, employment relations, associate development, contracts, and benefits administration. Basically, it amounts to getting Associates in the door, keeping them at ARDX, and exiting them if necessary. Once a candidate is selected to interview, all of the players must understand that they reflect the ARDX brand. Every experience from the phone screen to welcoming the candidate to orientation must be positive. Kims overall message to her staff and ARDX managers is Engage Engage Engage! This message is carried throughout the employment lifecycle, We engage Associates immediately, upfront, and often during their first year and beyond. Starting on Day-One, new Associates participate in our comprehensive, week-long New Hire Orientation Program. We check-in with them at frequent intervals throughout their entire first year. Giving and receiving feedback early and often is beneficial to both the new Associate and the organization. We truly care about our Associates and their continued success at ARDX.
Kim is building metrics to measure success, and will tweak the process as needed to make it more effective. On a monthly basis, Kim reports to leadership on the status of ARDX recruiting and retention, and she is proud do say that ARDXs retention rate is better than the national average as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Kim says that technology has both positive and negative impacts on talent acquisition. On the plus side, sites like LinkedIn provide transparency in that everyone can see the skills and experience listed, making it less likely that candidates will embellish on those sites. Unfortunately, technology has also made it easier for people to copy and adapt cover letters and resumes which may not truly represent their talents. In addition, some sites make it easy for individuals to post anonymous, inaccurate information online without verification. One very significant change is that job seekers in the past were looking for a career. Todays candidate is more likely to be looking to boost their skill-set and choose a job that will look good on their resume. Leaders have to shift their mindset to understand that not all turn-over is bad. A percentage of turn-over can be attributed to the new millennial-trend to keep looking for new opportunities.
Candidates are drawn to ARDX for a number of reasons. ARDX has a great reputation with clients and currently works on important programs such as implementation of the Affordable Care Act. ARDX also provides extraordinary benefits. ARDX demonstrates compassion for Associates by not only providing health insurance coverage for Associates, but ARDX also provides generous coverage for families. In addition, ARDX sponsors community projects including Healthcare Academy (HCA

A certificate program offered through an educational alliance between Cengage Learning and the NAPSRx (National Association of Pharmaceutical Sales Reps) will allow aspiring pharmaceutical sales applicants to obtain skills in the industry and improve their employment opportunities. The CNPR vocational training is an economically viable alternative for many job seekers or individuals looking to transition into pharmaceutical sales.
Vocational certificates like the CNPR Certification can significantly boost applicants placement rate as well as the earning power of those who obtain them. “It is vital and important to educate as well as certify pharmaceutical sales rep in this very technical industry. Training and expertise in an era when more and more pharmaceutical sales reps are turning to a clinical data-driven, informational physician decision support to provide care for their patients,” said Brad Sullivan, Educational Coordinator for the CNPR Certification Pharmaceutical Sales Training program. Pharmaceutical sales reps and the clinical information they deliver to physicians with specific drug efficacy details can optimize pharmacology results to patients.”
In 1999, the NAPSRX took note that the demand for formal pharmaceutical sales rep training and certification for pharmaceutical sales reps was continually growing within the industry. Two years later, with support from many industry executives, the NAPSRx launched the CNPR Pharmaceutical Sales Certification to define the core content for entry level pharmaceutical sales education and the training requirements for proposed accreditation. In 2006, Cengage Learning/Gatlin Education agreed to sponsor the CNPR Pharmaceutical Sales program and examination at over 300 major universities in the United States. The NAPSRx is honored to be working in collaboration with Cengage Learning to support their efforts to set standards of competency assessments for pharmaceutical sales reps, said Brad Sullivan, Educational Coordinator at the NAPSRx. These pharmaceutical sales training standards will not only be markers of professionalism for industry reps, but will also provide better qualify information to physicians with a way to measure the knowledge and skills necessary to deliver quality care. says Sullivan.
The CNPR was also submitted in 2006 to the U..S..Patents and Trademarks office with a formal application to be considered for a new Federal Certification Mark. Once submitted, the CNPR proposal attracted support from many pharmaceutical sales rep executives. Subsequently, several pharmaceutical companies expressed interest in joining as formal co-sponsors.
The NAPSRx has developed many pharmaceutical sales industry examinations to support specialty rep assessment programs initially for CNS, diabetes, cardiovascular, rheumatology, dermatology, oncology and more. All of these specialty programs will complement the structured formative training that the NAPSRx and Cengage Learning has implemented for its Continuing Medical Education training system. The collaboration will enhance the system of assessment that ensures that physicians will receive quality details on pharmacology products from industry reps. The CNPR program is designed to enhance the healthcare industrys current efforts to meet its evolving health care demands. We are honored to partner many industry companies and education institutions to enhance the assessment of the competencies of pharmaceutical sales reps.
The CNPR training and examination is administered online and can be taken at any time. This NAPSRx

There have been many discussions recently by financial experts regarding the increasing popularity of alternative investments. Clients of Advanta IRA know a viable alternative asset can potentially score higher gains at a faster pace than more traditional methods.
Self-directed IRAs are also receiving recognition, as these accounts allow a very large pool of non-traditional assets not available in the typical IRA. Why? Because, the average IRA custodian limits investors to options they sell which are typically the more traditional options such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Those who use these custodians are comfortable allowing their account managers to pick and choose investments for themfrom the limited, traditional offerings on the firms menu.
Self-directed account owners have decided they would rather be in control of their own funds and decisions and doing so opens the door to a vast amount of alternative investments permissible in these plans, says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Services in Florida and Advanta IRA Administration in Georgia. “Additionally, these plan owners have learned that by investing in things they personally know and understand, their chances of success increasesometimes exponentially.
This webinar is designed for investors to learn about alternative investments and the diversification these assets offer to portfolios. Knowledge is powerand Advanta IRA believes that when people come to understand these alternative assets the more willing they become to explore the potential they hold in building wealth inside a self-directed IRA.
Event: Webinar: Do Not Be Scared of Alternative Investments
Date: October 31, 2014
Time: 2:00 3:00 pm
Cost: No charge.

Husson University and Kennebec Valley Community College (KVCC) signed agreements that will create a smooth process for the transfer of credits from KVCC to Husson. The signing ceremony, representing the culmination of the agreement process, occurred at 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 13, 2014 on KVCCs Harold Alfond Campus,17 Stanley Hill Road, Hinckley, Maine in the new KVCC Sustainable Agriculture classroom building.
The agreements cover the transfer of credits from the following KVCC Associate degree programs into the corresponding Husson University baccalaureate degree programs:
Courses from KVCCs Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in Business Administration with a computer systems integration option will qualify for up to 55 credits toward a Husson University Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Computer Information Systems (CIS). Students who complete the required 55 credits worth of coursework specified in this agreement would only need to complete an additional 66 credits in order to earn a bachelors degree from Husson University.
Courses from KVCCs AAS degree in Business Administration with a marketing/management option will qualify for up to 63 credits toward a Husson University BS degree in Business Administration. Students who complete the required 63 credits worth of coursework specified in this agreement would only need to complete an additional 60 credits in order to earn a bachelors degree from Husson University.
Courses from KVCCs AAS degree in Business Administration with an accounting option will qualify for up to 69 credits toward a Husson University BS degree in Accounting. Students who complete the required 69 credits worth of coursework specified in this agreement would only need to complete an additional 51 credits in order to complete their bachelors degree at Husson University.
Courses from KVCCs AAS degree in Business Administration with a computer systems integration option will qualify for up to 64 credits toward a Husson University BS degree in Software Development.

Up to 60 credits from each of these AAS programs will now seamlessly transfer to Husson University. Since the BS in Psychology degree requires students to complete 120 credits in total, students transferring 60 credits from KVCC will already be halfway toward completing their bachelors degree at Husson.

These agreements help aspiring professionals advance their education and provide our mental healthcare system here in Maine, and beyond, with a more knowledgeable workforce. We welcome the opportunity to develop such agreements with as many community colleges as possible for appropriate Husson programs.
KVCC Vice President and Academic Dean Jon Connolly praised Husson for the ease with which the partnership unfolded. Developing this partnership and these articulation agreements was smoother than any we have ever conducted. Hussons openness to putting students degree attainment and advancement above all else is evident in both the attitude of the partnerships construction and in the structure of the agreements themselves.
