Salamander Pumps, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of domestic water pumps, has launched an innovative new online training tool, ‘eSchool’, featuring a host of helpful training modules, involving games, interactive imagery and animated technical videos, for installers and students alike.
The eSchool will help installers and college students learn more about Salamander’s products, their applications and best practice for installing their range of shower and whole house pumps.
Developed in conjunction with CIPHE (Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering), the online training courses can be accessed here or there is a link available through Salamander’s Installer Hub. The modules will also form a part of the CIPHE’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD). The courses have been supplied to City and Guilds to benefit training within the industry, and to support the development and training of industry professionals.
By registering for Salamander’s free Installer Hub, installers can also earn points for each pump they install, which can then be exchanged for high street vouchers. As well as this, installers will have the option to feature on Salamander’s Installer Map if they register their training module scores, allowing them to be more visible to homeowners.
The eSchool categories feature modules such as Gravity Systems and Solutions, EVE Product Training, and HomeBoost Product Training.
The training modules feature a range of interactive activities, from technical animated videos, games, interactive imagery and multiple-choice tests. Participants will need to achieve a score of at least 80% to pass but may have as many attempts as they like, with their highest score being recorded.
Ken Vance, Training Manager at Salamander Pumps, commented, “At Salamander, we regularly host training courses at colleges up and down the country, but we’re increasingly being asked about the other training courses we provide, which is why we’ve created the Salamander eSchool.
“We want to provide easy access to training for our customers, by providing in depth installation advice, detailed product information, and also helping to build confidence in product selection, and we strongly believe these new modules will be hugely beneficial and popular with installers.”
