Taco’s FloPro Factory Training returns with a new course and several new locations throughout the country, making it easier for contractors to participate in advanced hydronic systems training.

This factory training is available only to members of Taco’s FloPro Team, its free contractor training and development program. If you aren’t already a member of the FloPro Team, learn more about the program and register atwww.floproteam.com.

Taco returns with its most popular courses - the “Compleat” Boiler Room and Hydronic Heat Loss & Design - and adds a new course, Hydronic Control Strategies. Classes are conducted at five locations nationwide beginning in February. All classes are NATE-recognized and NORA-approved, and offer useful information and hands-on experience.

Tuition for all Taco FloPro Factory Training courses is $289 and includes two days of training, hotel accommodations for two nights, ground transport, meals and extras (though airfare to the host city isnotincluded).

Hydronic Control Strategies

Recognizing that the boiler may be the brawn behind any hydronic system, it’s the control strategies at work that form the brain. This two-day program covers a wide variety of hydronic controls that includes adding reset controls to existing cast-iron boilers and adding motorized reset valves to modulating-condensing boilers.

Attendees will also learn about the various ways to mix water temperatures for radiant systems, as well as advanced zoning and variable-speed pumping techniques.

Taco’s “Compleat” Boiler Room, or comparable program, is a recommended prerequisite.
