NEW YORK — Grundfos has announced the launch of Ecademy, its online pump training platform, for the United States market.
Targeted for consulting engineers, installers, professional end users, service partners, and wholesale distributors, Ecademy is a training series for Grundfos pumps designed to provide easy-to-access education on product specification, operation, and troubleshooting.
“This online platform will greatly extend our training reach,” said Clint Andrews, technical training manager for Grundfos USA. “Thanks to Ecademy, we can virtually accompany our customers to a job site or a client meeting via their mobile devices.”
The platform features global as well as local content in a variety of formats such as videos, slideshows, articles, and interactive tools. Through the portal, customers will be able to access classes on topics such as products, applications, and industry standards.
“Every Ecademy class can stand on its own,” Andrews said. “Some lead into more technical and advanced topics. For professional engineers required to maintain their licensure through continuing education, Ecademy offers many classes that are approved for learning units by the American Institute of Architects.”
Grundfos originally launched Ecademy in Europe in 2006, where it now boasts 30,000 members and approximately 10 percent of the continent’s installers.
