Taco Offers 'Soup to Nuts' FloPro Training for 2017
Taco Residential Training Manager John Barba has brought back the "Residential Hydronics: Advanced Soup to Variable Speed Nuts" Course. Barba will conduct FloPro factory training once a month from April through October (except August). The first available class is in May. The April and July classes are already sold out.
In this hands-on, two-day course, attendees receive a look at modern residential hydronic systems, learning common sense solutions to the challenges they face every day in the field.
The course bypasses theory, and the usual "what's in the box" training, to immerse installers in practical applications in the mechanical room and – of course – what actually happens when you install "what's in the box."
This popular course fills up fast. Those who’re interested will want to make sure they secure the training dates of their choice.
