Credits toward green building certification are available through Xylem’s training at its Bell & Gossett Little Red Schoolhouse (LRSH). The company has announced the second quarter for its classes, which are geared towards engineers, contractors, and installers in the commercial plumbing and hydronic heating and cooling industries.
Company officials said the in-person courses deliver knowledge on the latest advancements in centrifugal pumps and HVAC system design, and qualify for industry credentialing requirements. Since 1954, the learning center has trained more than 60,000 professionals in the proper design, installation, and maintenance of hydronic and steam systems.
“As B&G marks its centennial in 2016 and looks ahead to the next century, it will continue offering world-class training to the HVAC industry,” said Larry Konopacz, manager of training and education for Xylem.
