MORTON GROVE, Ill. — Xylem has announced the upcoming HVAC training schedule at its Bell & Gossett (B&G) Little Red Schoolhouse. Fourth-quarter classes are tailored toward the commercial hydronic heating and cooling industry.

The Little Red Schoolhouse’s systems-based training provides professional development to personnel in the HVAC industry.

The in-person courses deliver knowledge on the latest advancements in centrifugal pumps and HVAC system design, and qualify for industry credentialing requirements. Since 1954, this learning center has provided education on the proper design, installation, and maintenance of hydronic and steam systems. Additionally, B&G also provides online training.

“Demand for practical, hands-on experience with a focus on technological advances remains high. B&G is proud to provide two strong options to gain valuable world-class training to the HVAC industry,” said Larry Konopacz, senior manager, technical training, Xylem.

The Little Red Schoolhouse fourth quarter schedule is:

• Steam System Design & Application Seminar: Sept. 26-28

• Service & Maintenance of Water Based HVAC Systems Seminar: Oct. 3-5

• Design & Application of Water Based HVAC Systems Seminar: Nov. 7-9

• Large Chilled Water System Design Seminar: Nov. 14-16

• Modern Hydronic Heating Systems Basic Seminar: Dec. 5-7

• Design & Application of Water Based HVAC Systems Seminar: Dec. 12-14


Bell & Gossett also provides online training through its virtual curriculum. The Online Little Red Schoolhouse training and educational program begins with introductory courses on centrifugal pump fundamentals and piping systems. Twenty-two self-paced modules are intended to complement the more in-depth, hands-on experience students receive during the in-person courses, including a recently launched course focused on waterside economization where students can learn design fundamentals and how the 90.1 Energy Standard applies to waterside economization systems.
