How many of you still service self generating (Honeywell Powerpile Robertshaw Thermopile) systems? If there was a one day FREE school on the subject how many would be interested?

    Do you provide any online training/webinars? Id be interested in that, as travel is difficult.

    Same here, I'm in the NE corner of the country and it takes 5 hours just to get out of Maine.... :# I'd do a webinar for sure. Time away and traveling make it difficult to do some training.

    I'd love some kind of pdf/PowerPoint self-study. Docs to keep on my phone/laptop are what I like the best.

    My training center is located in Warren, RI so it would have to done there. I do not do webinars. I could put a PowerPoint together but it would not be free.

    This is a chance to see my training center and get a little free training on Powerpile. I am the resident expert on the subject as I have worked on thousands of these system and really know all the tricks to properly diagnosing this system. Others may offer training on Powerpile but what we offer is the cats MEOW.

    Powerpile is still being used on fireplace inserts, water heaters and certainly pool heaters. we cover it all.

    Will the class demonstrate how to shake sense into people who still have these systems?
    No power? Flip the switch and open the flow valve. Then go back upstairs, break out the fondue set and the Donna Summers vinyl.

    I have to units in my house on Powerpile, my central heating warm air furnace and a thru the wall Temco space heater. Sure is great when you have a power failure.

    Come on guys! I flew from Alaska to attend his classes, and paid for it. How far can you be? It's FREE. That is a very good price.
