PROVIDENCE, R.I. — OESP, the National Association of Oil and Energy Service Professionals, (formerly NAOHSM) will host its 59th Annual Convention and Trade Show in Providence at the Rhode Island Convention Center from May 20-24, 2012. The 2012 theme is “Energy — It’s a New Frontier...Get Connected!” and all industry professionals are invited to attend.
Owners and managers of plumbing and HVAC contracting firms can attend even if they are not members of the association. OESP invites them to join them for free. This annual event offers contractors a chance to boost their career by attending a variety of educational classes. Attendees can earn NATE and NORA (National Oilheat Research Alliance) CEUs in complimentary courses. The event includes OESP Trade Show’s indoor and outdoor exhibitors.
OESP’s mission is education, which is why it encourages and promotes education for free. Monday through Wednesday will feature technical and managerial classes. The courses will end on Wednesday afternoon with a special “Ask These Old Guys” Q&A. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask Dan Holohan and John Barba, the “Kings of Hydronics,” everything they’ve always wanted to know about hydronic heating systems.
Other class topics include solar, chimneys, and high-efficiency equipment, oil and gas, hybrid systems, and more. OESP will also launch its new Energy Consultant Academy, and some of the instructors from OESP’s Train-the-Trainer Program will conduct these classes. Baby Boomers and Generations X and Y will work together to use technology to improve their businesses. Attendees who have thought about getting into certification programs will have the opportunity to do so as well.
OESP invites all industry professionals to join them in Providence from May 20-24, 2012 for the oil and energy industry’s biggest event in the Northeast. Information about attending or exhibiting is available at www.thinkoesp.org or by calling 888/552-0900.
