Plumbing Contractors of America (PCA) announced the opening of a new Virtual Education Series that goes beyond the typical Zoom meeting that many have become accustomed to. The seven-episode series features an in-depth look at JPG Plumbing & Mechanical Services, a member contractor based in Jessup, Maryland. Each episode is a mini case study in a different area of operations and hosted by the JPG employees in charge of the relevant work.
What makes this series different than a typical webinar is that each area of focus includes a 15-minute video to showcase the operation and a workbook that includes products, materials and costs, as well as an interactive interview with the host to get more insight into functions and share attendee solutions.
“We were all set to do a similar conference on plumbing service in person,” JPG President and CEO John Geiling stated. “When COVID hit, instead of cancelling it or doing it via a PowerPoint presentation, we decided to try to figure out how to expand out the content and share even more information. The result is that instead of a 15 minute demo that we would have done in our shop, we can get into a lot more details, share more information and get insight from other members as to how their operations are different.”
Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 23, the series will host a live module each week until its conclusion on Nov. 4. Each Wednesday, the session materials will be posted with a link to the live episode posted upon its completion. Materials will be available throughout the duration of the series. The schedule includes the following:
Registration for the series is $400 and open to PCA, MCAA and MSCA members only. To learn more, visit the PCA Virtual Education Series website bit.ly/2YX9MZ.
