SENECA FALLS, NY — For the first time in its history, Goulds Water Technology Factory School is introducing a female-only course with the addition of a female- only option of its Residential Water System Product Application & Troubleshooting course. While the curriculum will remain the same, the focus of this female-only offering will be to empower women and their unique experiences in the field, all in a supportive setting offering in- depth training, hands-on experience and opportunities to advance trade skills.

The Goulds Water Technology Factory School courses, held at their training facility in Seneca Falls, New York, cover an extensive range of product lines and related systems. These courses provide attendees with valuable hands-on training and troubleshooting skills that are necessary for success in the field. In addition to the female-only class, courses on variable speed drive and residential water system applications will be available in quarter two.

Keys to Success

“We know that education and training are key to success in the field, and we are excited to offer this female-only course to women making valuable contributions to our industry,” said Tom Stephan, training manager, Goulds Water Technology. “With this new course, women will receive the same comprehensive training, with the added benefit of a more tailored approach that appreciates the unique experiences and challenges women have faced among historically male dominated industries.”

Goulds Water Technology Factory School has provided instruction on the latest advancements in commercial, residential and agricultural applications to thousands of water industry professionals for more than 30 years. In-person sessions held at the Campbell Education Center are led by Xylem’s experienced trainers and designed to provide attendees with an immersive and engaging learning experience.
