read the post "Wirsbo, who loves ya-----hb.

Any training is better than none but Wirsbo's sounds exceptional and at a great cost.

    Just got an offer to attend 2 1/2 day training at WIRSBO in Minnesota June 9-11 for $300.00 per person. Anyone have any feedback?! Thanks in advance!

    I've been there, and found it to be VERY worthwhile. For someone just getting into radiant, it is essential. For someone who has already been doing radiant, it is very beneficial.... and oh yea.....It isn't boring. They make class fun, and the extra-curricular events are a blast as well..... complete with designated drivers.

    I more than made up my investment in time & money the first month after the Wirsbo training.

    Highly Recommended!

    If you don't go, you'll regret it.

    Then again, after meeting Wes and John, you may regret it.

    Seriously, it's one of the best and alot of fun. Bring a BIG notebook and lots of pens. You'll be taking notes...no matter how long you've been in the field.

    Wes & John

    along with Ingrid (who is more beautiful with each passing day) make this the best of the best. Lively, entertaining and downright educational - they'll leave you with a "WOW" feeling. After the night's festivities, Wes is likely to leave you with an "OW" feeling(G)!

    I had a wonderful time when there. Education is the key and although it's the Wirsbo products they feature (well, D'oh), the knowledge can be applied across the board.

    Trust me, you won't ever regret spending that 300. Another thing you can trust me on? You see Wes coming down the track, you'd best have good insurance(G)! That's a real smackdown. What black flag? I wasn't driving recklessly, it was all Wes - honest.

    When I went to the training course we watched alot of the Red Green show and learned to apply duct tape the right way, we also learned how to do the "Funky Almadia" in the karaoke bar. But, I learned more about radiant heat than I thought I could in 3 days.

    It's like a good movie

    They keep you entertained and awake.I went and got alot of
    good info that can be applied to any product.I stopped listening when they started to say that you can do a staple
    up job with out plates,and run the water up to 180 to do it.
    After that I thought they are just doing this dog and pony
    show to sell tube anyway they can and not tring to sell good
    radiant systems.I still say go, but don't brain washed into
    thinking they are the only brand around.
    Just my review.

    It was a very educational experience in 1996, and I understand that it is even better now. I wouldn't pass up the chance!

    Take the class. You will learn more than you thought you could in 3 short days. They will also give you tips on how to sell the concept.
