Taco’s FloPro Factory Training hands-on classes teach participants how to grow their hydronic expertise and boost profitability, offering a broad range of professional development opportunities for plumbing and heating contractors in 2011. Taco’s popular Webinar series will continue at a rate of two per month, free of charge.
Its most popular course from John Barba, The ‘Compleat’ Boiler Room, will be available for four days at Taco’s main facility in Cranston, RI. 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. This is an advanced training, two-day program covering the latest in controls and products, with extended hands-on opportunities for installers and designers.
