Bell & Gossett releases Q2 2017 Little Red Schoolhouse schedule


Engineers, contractors and installers in the commercial plumbing and hydronic heating and cooling industries are encouraged to enroll in a second quarter Little Red Schoolhouse (LRSH) training seminar to learn about the latest advancements in centrifugal pumps and HVAC system design.

More than 61,000 engineers, contractors and installers have been trained in the proper design, installation and maintenance of hydronic and steam systems since the LRSH opened its doors in Morton Grove, Ill., in 1954. All LRSH seminars are designed to meet industry credentialing requirements and bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge of HVAC systems and real-world applications.

“Our training seminars are uniquely tailored to give students hands-on experience that is specific to their occupation within the industry,” Larry Konopacz, senior manager for Bell & Gossett Little Red Schoolhouse Training & Education, said. “After completing a training seminar, students have the knowledge and skills they need to confidently tackle a variety of troubleshooting, installation and maintenance projects.”
