Labour Management: Retail-focus

Labor Management: Retail-focus teaches dealers the opportunity cost of a lost labor hour, as well as how to leverage their existing crews into the most productive and efficient revenue-generating team possible. Dealers will learn to leverage their existing installation crews to maximize profit through labor- saving techniques. After completing this course, dealers will have the knowledge they need to become the chosen company to work for in town, retaining their current team, and attracting the best installers as employees. Attendees will also learn the “soft skills” that will help them ensure satisfied customers, sell accessories, and generate valuable referral leads as they complete high-quality, retail installations.

Top Gun Installer Excellence: Closing the Loop

  July 16th & July 17th, 2019
COURSE DESCRIPTION HEPBURN

Top Gun Installer Excellence – Closing the Loop is a two-part class with Owners and Installation personnel attending both Day 1 and Day 2 and Salespeople coming on Day 2 only.

Day 1 – Installers will learn how to perform their job better, understand the importance of customer satisfaction, and develop the skills to advance in their profession, all of which will increase their job satisfaction. With well-trained installers, dealers will be able to make the transition from a contractor to a retailer who runs a sales-driven company.

Day 2 – During the second day of class we will work through a series of breakout exercises as a group to determine how sales can help installation, how installation can help sales, and how all of us can work together as a team to eliminate callbacks, drive customer satisfaction, and generate referral leads.

Cross Connections #2

  September 17th - 20th, 2019
COURSE DESCRIPTION Saskatoon

The program's emphasis is on hazards, devices,  and testing. It is designed for those already involved with the planning, design, installation, maintenance, and inspection of plumbing, piping systems, or water-supplied equipment that connects to the potable water system, either inside or outside of buildings. The pressure differential between the two systems may cause contaminated or polluted fluids to flow through connections with no control, ultimately changing the quality of the potable water. Reversal of flow in the water may be unpredictable. Backflow education and training will help you to effectively combat all actual and potential types of cross-connections.
