Boon Edam Inc., a global provider of in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, announced an expanded product training schedule for 2018 that includes all scheduled Factory trainings, Roadshow trainings throughout the USA and Canada, and webinars. Technical training events are free of charge to Boon Edam partners and integrators, and typically include two or three days of intensive product instruction and hands-on exercises that address the most common installation and maintenance issues in the field.
Roadshow Trainings bring in-depth product 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 most-in demand product, the Tourlock security revolving door.
What’s unique about the Roadshow training is that a specially-engineered, full-size revolving door, with both automatic and manual parts, is shipped to each training location, often a hotel. Here, participants work together to assemble the door and experience multiple hands-on training sessions.
Due to growing demand after the Roadshow’s 2016 inaugural year, Boon Edam has expanded the schedule to 10 locations in 2018. This year, Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, Minneapolis, Montreal, Boston, Chicago, and Houston will all host a Roadshow training. There will also be two specialised training opportunities in the company’s technical training centers located in San Jose and New York. Each two-day event includes one session of Revolving Door Training (TQM, Crystal TQ, Boon Assist TQ, TQA, Tourlock security revolving door), followed by a day of training on the most popular optical turnstiles, the Lifeline Series.
Annual intensive training sessions
Intensive, one- to two-day Factory trainings are held four times a year (three in the spring and one in the fall) at Boon Edam Inc.’s headquarters in Lillington, NC. Participants will have both classroom and hands-on access to the widest range of Boon Edam products. In addition, the spring and fall factory trainings will follow an in-house, AAADM A156.27 certification course on public use revolving doors.
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. As the sessions are free of charge, the only costs attendees incur are travel and hotel, except the AAADM certification (which requires a fee). Boon Edam’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.
“Technical training has been a proven win/win/win for us, the partner, and the end user customer. Our goal is to deliver a wide array of low-cost options for technical training, so we can empower our partners to delight their customers,” said Ellett. “The response so far to our Roadshow training has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are committed to supporting our partners in new Roadshow locations in 2018,” Ellett concluded.
