We’re proud of the P1 Group Training Facility at our Lenexa headquarters for good reason. It is both unique to P1 Group and useful to our professional community.
Our Training Facility is a resource that goes beyond keeping our own service technicians relevant and knowledgeable. It also provides educational opportunities to industry colleagues and partners.
That is one reason P1 Group hosted the Great Plains chapter of the National Environmental Balancing Bureau (NEBB) for the inaugural Test Adjust Balance (TAB) seminar January 24 and 25. There were 37 participants from NEBB-chapter firms in Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska and Missouri.
The seminar was in preparation for the NEBB TAB technician test. The content covered the fundamentals of air, water and fan laws presented in the form of lecture, presentation and interactive problem solving.
“Attendees came from all over the Midwest with varying degrees of experience,” Phil Nehring, Executive Vice President, said. “The positive response from all was overwhelming on this first class. Due to this enthusiasm, along with the capabilities of our training center, we expect this will move into training 2.0, which includes more particle hands on training.”
Phil also notes that NEBB’s purpose is to ensure top quality of service in Commissioning and TAB, which requires stringent testing requirements to become certified. The focus of the P1 Group training center is on teaching systems, rather than specific equipment, to help technicians better understand design intent, application of the equipment and the control strategy that supports the outcome.
“We greatly appreciate the hospitality and generosity P1 Group showed to our chapter,” Phil Doud, Great Plains NEBB President, said.
“Your training facility is outstanding and provides an excellent setting to educate our firm technicians and professionals. We appreciate the opportunity to continue this relationship, and hope to utilize your facility in a more ‘hands-on’ approach as well.”
P1 Group has been a member of NEBB since 1972.
