Bell & Gossett: Company Releases Q2 Little Red Schoolhouse schedule



Morton Grove, Ill. — March 10, 2016 — Earn credits toward green building certification through Xylem’s industry-leading training at its Bell & Gossett Little Red Schoolhouse (LRSH). Second-quarter classes are geared toward engineers, contractors, and installers in the commercial plumbing and hydronic heating and cooling industries.

The LRSH’s one-of-a-kind, systems-based training approach provides industry professionals with hands-on training and holistic solutions to customers in the HVAC industry.

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 state-of-the-art 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, training and education, Xylem.

Here is the remaining Little Red Schoolhouse second-quarter schedule:

Bell & Gossett’s commitment to education reaches a global audience through its virtual curriculum. The Online Little Red Schoolhousetraining and educational program begins with introductory courses on centrifugal pump fundamentals and piping systems.

Twenty-two self-paced modules are intended to complement the more in-depth, hands-on experience that students receive during the in-person courses, including a recently launched course focused on waterside economization where students can learn design fundamentals and how the 90.1 Energy Standard applies to waterside economization systems.
