The addition of a female only option of its Residential Water System Product Application & Troubleshooting course is designed to provide a pipeline for women in the trades.
While the curriculum will remain the same, the focus of this female-only offering will be to empower women and their unique experiences in the field, all in a supportive setting offering indepth training, hands-on experience and opportunities to advance trade skills.
The Goulds Water Technology Factory School courses, held at its training facility in Seneca Falls, New York, cover a range of product lines and related systems. In addition to the female-only class, courses on variable speed drive and residential water system applications will also be available in the second quarter.
“We know that education and training are key to success in the field, and we are excited to offer this female-only course to women making valuable contributions to our industry,” said Tom Stephan, training manager, Goulds Water Technology. “With this new course, women will receive the same comprehensive training, with the added benefit of a more tailored approach that appreciates the unique experiences and challenges women have faced among historically male dominated industries.”

In-person sessions held at the Campbell Education Center are led by Xylem’s experienced trainers and designed to provide attendees with an immersive and engaging learning experience.
