CRANSTON, R.I. - Taco’s new FloPro University (FloPro U) classes premiered in September. With live webinars and archived video e-learning sessions, FloPro U offers interactive contractor education programs.

“We have lots of experience and information to share with contractors,” said John Barba, Taco contractor training and trade program manager, “but they’re the ones out in the field getting it done every day. That tells us two things: that we need to offer our training with maximum flexibility, and that we can learn just as much from them as they can learn from us.”

On the Taco FloPro website, recorded e-learning sessions are available and provide a quiz at the end. These self-guided classes can be viewed at any time, over any computer and for as long as the participant can devote. Each class is broken up into many lessons, each lasting just a few minutes so one can learn at his or her own pace.

The first courses available include “Universal Hydronics Formula,” “Variable-Speed Pumping,” “Hydronics: Step-by-Step,” and “Anatomy of a Circulator.” More FloPro University classes will appear throughout the balance of the year.
