ORANGE, Calif. — Fieldpiece Instruments announced the launch of Fieldpiece University — a new online training platform dedicated to providing application-based training to HVACR field pros, distributors, and sales reps.
Fieldpiece University features two modules: one channel to help HVACR distributors, sales reps, and counter reps match HVACR technicians with the right tools for the job, and another to provide technicians in the field technical training.
"Every day, we talk to HVACR professionals about how we can make their lives easier in the field,” said Tony Gonzalez, technical training manager at Fieldpiece Instruments. “These conversations encouraged us to develop a new online training tool that anyone can use to improve their skills – whether you’re behind the sales counter talking to a contractor about a vacuum pump, or you work in the field and need to know the proper way to use a stand-alone vacuum gauge while performing a system evacuation."
The Fieldpiece University platform was built in partnership with BlueVolt. Featuring interactive training modules, video content, and resources with quizzes and assessments to cement new learning, the platform also offers technicians an opportunity to earn continuing education (CE) credits for select coursework.
The distributor module helps wholesalers and distributors better understand what field professionals are looking for out of their tools and offers insight to help a more knowledgeable sales staff better match customers with the right tools for the job.
Fieldpiece University’s field technician module offers training on specific products, techniques, and applications, as well as myriad ways to extend HVACR industry knowledge and insight to stay ahead of the curve. CE credit offerings ensure field pros stay current with new technology, laws, and regulations. Fieldpiece University can be accessed at home on a desktop or while on break from work via a mobile device.
