Weil-McLain Launches 2016 “School of Better Heating” Training Programs

Burr Ridge, Ill. – (April 4, 2016) – Weil-McLain®, a leading North American designer and manufacturer of hydronic comfort heating systems for residential, commercial and institutional buildings, has launched its 2016 School of Better Heating training program. The School of Better Heating is an annual series of seminars that now includes a new learning model that incorporates feedback from past and prospective attendees of the training events.

The one- to two-day sessions feature classes on Hydronics 101, a Circulator Course, gas control troubleshooting, information on managing multiple boilers, efficiency operation training and more.

The School of Better Heating reflects Weil-McLain’s leadership in hydronic system training, which also includes extensive in-field experience with hands-on and application training, in addition to class instruction and special certified courses for continuing education.

“By securing ongoing feedback, we can better understand our end user needs,” said Greg Pickens, Director of Learning and Development at Weil-McLain. “It’s about becoming the thought leader in training, which means understanding our training event attendees and being diligent in our course adaptation.”

According to Pickens, these programs will standardize the training process through smart application, feedback and investment in partnerships with other leading HVAC industry brands like Taco® and Sentinel®.

“Partnering with other companies allows us to incorporate a more thorough learning program into our School of Better Heating events,” said Pickens. “A contractor will be able to gain valuable information on hydronic heating techniques and Weil-McLain products while learning about other systems, such as inline circulators from Taco representatives, for example.”

The 2016 School of Better Heating training schedule kicked off in Philadelphia on March 15 and will continue through September at various locations in the Eastern and Midwest regions, including:

  • April 10-12 – Eden, N.C.
