WHITE BEAR LAKE, MN — Contractors 2000, an association of HVAC, plumbing, and electrical contractors, will offer six business training courses simultaneously in one location this October in Nashville, TN. The training is designed for service managers, sales managers, marketing managers, CEO/owners, and others.

The event is a first for Contractors 2000 and has been dubbed Super Training Week.

“This new concept of conducting a Super Training Week will bring a greater opportunity [for our members] to learn and grow their businesses,” said Greg Niemi, president and CEO of the organization. “These courses are nearly all new to our members.” Niemi also says that by bringing all of the courses to one location and running the courses concurrently, the association is able to offer members more variety at a reduced cost.

The event will include the association’s Gold Star Management Academy, which focuses on effective management techniques for service managers, and a revamped Marketing Masters Academy, which will cover the benefits of market positioning, defining prospects, tracking methods, marketing objectives, and strategies.

Participants can also take part in a Train the Trainer course, or Contractors 2000’s Open Book Management course.

New courses for Contractors 2000 include Top Gun Sales Management and Business Owners School of Success (BOSS).

After the three days of classes, all members are welcome to attend a general session called Fish or Cut Bait. The session is designed to show attendees how to make a company a fun and rewarding place to work.
