Boon Edam, a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, announced that it continues to expand the resources devoted to its growing schedule of training programs. The recently-released 2017 training schedule includes all scheduled factory trainings, roadshow trainings, and technical workshops at Boon Edam’s technology and training center in Manhattan.
Due to popular demand after its inaugural year in 2016, the company has expanded its Roadshow training to six locations in 2017. Those locations are Toronto, Fredericksburg (VA), Seattle, St. Louis, Dallas, and Philadelphia. Roadshow Training courses include one session of Revolving Door Training (TQM, Crystal TQ, Boon Assist TQ, TQA, Tourlock security revolving door), followed by two Lifeline optical turnstile training sessions over two days.
Roadshow Training Sessions
Roadshow Trainings bring in-depth education direct to the partner’s region. Each session focuses on the installation, service, maintenance, and overall care of manual and automatic revolving doors, including the Tourlock security revolving door. A specially engineered, full-size revolving door with both automatic and manual parts is shipped to each training location where participants work together to assemble the door and experience hands-on training sessions. Lifeline and Tourlock training courses are also offered at Boon Edam’s NYC showroom location.
The company’s Technical Training
Intensive, 3-day Factory trainings are held four times a year at Boon Edam’s US headquarters in Lillington, NC, where participants have hands-on access to the widest range of Boon Edam products.
Building Relationships With End Users
Zac Ellett, Technical Training Resources Manager, has been the driving force behind the Training Roadshows and the overall expansion of the company’s training programs. Boon Edam technical training sessions are offered at no cost. The only costs attendees incur are travel and hotel for Roadshow and Factory trainings. The company’s Technical Training program mission is to enable its valued partners to build positive, long term relationships with end user customers and operate more independently through the transfer of technical knowledge and certification.
“It’s essential that we provide our partners a wide array of low-cost options for technical training to better equip them to delight their customers,” said Ellett. “The response to our Roadshow training in 2016 was overwhelmingly positive, so we’ve expanded our number of locations and our overall schedule. We are really looking forward to supporting our partners even better in 2017.”
