Xylem’s Bell & Gossett announced the second quarter 2017 Little Red Schoolhouse (LRSH) schedule. Engineers, contractors, and installers in the commercial plumbing and hydronic heating and cooling industries are encouraged to enroll in 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,” said Larry Konopacz, senior manager for Bell & Gossett Little Red Schoolhouse Training & Education. “After completing a training seminar, students have the knowledge and skills they need to confidently tackle a variety of troubleshooting, installation and maintenance projects.”

The LRSH second quarter schedule includes:

  • The Design and Application of Water Based HVAC Systems Seminar*;
  • The Large Chilled Water System Design Seminar*;
  • The Design and Application of Water Based HVAC Systems Seminar*;
  • The Modern Hydronic Heating Systems – Basic Seminar*;
  • The Design and Application of Water Based HVAC Systems Seminar*; and
  • The Service and Maintenance of Water Based HVAC Systems Seminar*.

The classes are offered April 3 to 5, April 10 to 12, May 8 to 10, May 22 to 24, June 5 to 7, and June 19 to 21.

*Denotes seminar approved by GBCI to provide credit toward the credential maintenance requirements of the LEED Associate and LEED AP certifications.

Bell & Gossett’s commitment to education extends to a global, virtual audience through its Online Little Red Schoolhouse (OLRSH). Students can choose from four courses—piping systems, waterside economization, centrifugal pump fundamentals and pressure boosting systems—that are intended to complement the more in-depth, hands-on experience students receive during the in-person courses. Industry professionals that complete the virtual courses are eligible to receive IACET CEU credits.
