New training supplement gives plumbing and heating contractors of all experience and skill levels an easier way to gain product knowledge.
Noritz America today announced the release of its Online Residential Level 1 (R1) tankless water heater training for plumbing and heating contractors. The Noritz University course will supplement personal training by Noritz sales personnel, allowing those tradespeople who are unable to attend in-person sessions the ability to gain and deepen their tankless knowledge quickly and effectively.
“The training is useful for contractors of all levels of experience, because we continue to develop and improve our technology,” says Jason Fleming, Marketing Manager for Noritz America. “Now there’s a new way to get the right information quickly and efficiently without always having to travel to a Noritz facility or a distributor location.”
The Noritz website will host the training slides, which also furnish information on a shortcut to Training signup, available courses, as well as the benefits of participating in the company’sPROCard rebate program. A checkpoint quiz at the end of the module allows contractors to complete their education courses in order to be listed in the “Find an Installer” section of the website, while also elevating their status as PROCard members.
The 45 training slides in the new R1 program take approximately an hour to complete, according to Fleming. Topics include:
- What is a Tankless Water Heater?
- Residential Condensing and Non-Condensing Product Lines
- Large Residential/Commercial Product Line
- Combustion Air
- PVC Considerations
- Direct and Standard Venting, Vent Termination Clearances
- Circuit Board Dipswitches
- Special Applications
- Water Treatment
- Descale Procedure
Noritz intends to expand its instruction on these key tankless topics in future courses. “It’s always beneficial to get the latest on our products,” says Fleming. “The more a contractor knows, the easier it is for him to sell his knowledge, skills and services.”
