Participants learn to grow their hydronic expertise and boost profitability. All hands-on classes offer useful information and experience. Their popular webinar series will continue at a rate of two per month, free of charge.
The company will focus its efforts on its most popular, John Barba-driven course: the ‘Compleat’ Boiler Room, with four dates available at Taco’s main facility in Cranston, RI. According to Barba, Taco's nationally-recognized hydronics trainer, other courses will also be held at locations in Colorado, Ohio, Long Island and Philadelphia. All classes are NATE-Recognized and NORA Approved.
Compleat Boiler Room training shows installers how to install outstanding boiler rooms. "We'll discuss sizing and near-boiler piping for both cast iron and modulating-condensing boilers," says Barba.
"We'll discuss the proper sizing and application of circulators and zone valves, and discuss zoning strategies with a heavy dose of hydronic electronics thrown in for good measure." It's an advanced training program covering the latest in controls and products, with extended hands-on opportunities. This two-day program is designed for and will benefit any experienced hydronics installer or designer.
Tuition for all Taco FloPro Factory Training course is $289 and includes two days of training, hotel accommodations for two nights, ground transport, meals and extras (though airfare to the host city is not included).
