SENECA FALLS, NY —  Water industry professionals are encouraged to enroll in Goulds Water Technology’s (GWT) Factory School and e-Learning courses, and participate in WebEx trainings to learn about the latest advancements in residential, commercial and agricultural applications.

GWT Factory School training courses are held at the state-of-the-art Campbell Education Center laboratory in Seneca Falls, New York, where students learn using actual installations and gain valuable troubleshooting skills. Each course covers the breadth of the GWT product line and related systems, and is available for distributors, dealers, engineers and OEMs with at least one year of industry experience.

“When out on the job, many Factory School participants become teachers and show their colleagues how to install or troubleshoot pumps and accessories,” said Tom Stephan, GWT training manager. “Our curriculum provides extensive hands-on experience so water industry professionals feel confident addressing and solving water technology demands.”

An extension of the GWT Factory School, GWT’s e-Learning virtual education program is modified for individual comprehension. Students can enroll in two courses – basic water systems training and variable frequency drives – that contain videos and interactive online resources.

Online WebEx training seminars can be accessed globally and are intended to provide water professionals with up-to-date product information, troubleshooting support and other training to help grow their business. Each training seminar is approximately one hour long.
