Courses offered at these centers will include hands-on technical training with live-fire units, sales, marketing, and business development courses, and national certification courses through organizations like NATE ® . Multi-day courses include hospitality events throughout your stay so that the experience is memorable and fun! In addition to the classroom courses offered, Rheem offers a variety of products, business, and technical courses on our portals, RheemAcademy.com, RuudUniversity.com and SureComfortCollege.com. Similar to our in- person events, the online courses also provide opportunities for hands-on and interactive materials designed to engage the learner and use each student's experience as a tool to facilitate group learning. Beginning this summer, Rheem will begin rolling out classroom courses to our customers, with new courses being added on a regular basis. The initial class offering includes: • Inverter 17-20 SEER Product & Service Training • Single Stage AC Product & Service Training • Single Stage Heat Pump Product & Service Training • Air Handler Service Training • EcoNet ® Product Training How to register for courses A national calendar is launching in July of this year with a list of courses available at our Innovation Learning Centers and detail on how to register. The new calendar, which will be made available both online and through a variety of marketing campaigns, will allow students to view year- long calendar events at each of the Innovation Learning Centers and give information to sign up for courses at specific locations. Education courses with today's industry leaders Rheem works with a handful of industry experts to bring a fresh, outside view of the industry with training that is based on real world, proven examples and case studies. These experts also develop content that can be found only in a Rheem classroom. Respected industry education experts like Dr. Ron Collier and Mike Prokup bring a unique perspective on the market and translate their knowledge into comprehensive, measurable methods any student can immediately apply to their business. In addition, Rheem has partnered with the Electric & Gas Industries Association (EGIA) and its Contractor University program. EGIA offers discounted memberships to Rheem, Ruud and Sure Comfort contractors, plus access to online courses and a variety of classroom-based courses throughout the country; including at Rheem's new Innovation Learning Centers. Looking Ahead Rheem is dedicated to becoming the destination for contractors looking to grow their business through training. Whether it is an online course that works with your busy schedule, or attending a program in one of our new Innovation Learning Centers, the experience is designed to give you real-world knowledge that takes your business to the next level. We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming training events. Continuing education should be part of everyone's strategic business plans Technology changes every day; even in well-established industries like HVAC. Contractors and professional installers who do not take advantage of continuing education opportunities run the risk of becoming complacent—not realizing that new products and technologies could play a significant role in bolstering revenue. For nearly a century, Rheem ® has focused on providing innovative, efficient products designed to meet the needs of homeowners and businesses. We understand our growth is directly tied into that of our business partners, specifically our contractor customers. Five years ago, the company made a shift in its education services to focus specifically on developing the best-trained contractors and distributors in our industry. Improving continuing education opportunities for our channel partners became a larger part of Rheem's business strategy.
