Belgard has a long history of commitment to the success of our industry partners. Over the years, we’ve offered thousands of hours in free education through various programs including certification courses, Lunch & Learn courses, continuing education offerings and our world-class Belgard University. This year, Belgard University is evolving to become an even more robust program geared to helping contractors and dealers learn, grow and succeed. The new three-tiered program will incorporate the following elements.
Belgard University Professional Partnership events are open to all hardscape contractors and dealers and applicable for anyone from managers to foremen and crew members. What has been traditionally thought of as a BU event in the past, these in-depth training events will focus on education, but will also include a customer appreciation aspect. The 2020 Professional Partnership calendar offers training events across North America, with more still to be scheduled. Each event will be tailored to the specific needs of the local market, but can include:
Belgard University Demo Days will be conducted by Belgard Sales representatives at either a Belgard manufacturing facility or a Belgard Authorized Dealer in multiple markets across North America. Open to new and existing Belgard customers, the focus of each Demo Day will be to demonstrate products, answer questions and get feedback from the field. The 2020 Demo Days calendar is currently being finalized, and the dates will be announced in the first quarter of 2020. In addition to learning about new products and installation methods, attendees will also learn about updates to programs available both nationally and locally.
By invitation only, Belgard University Leaders Circle events will focus on customer appreciation for VIP Belgard Authorized Dealers, Belgard Authorized Contractors and Master Craftsmen. These networking events will primarily be geared towards owners and managers and will offer some educational aspects, as applicable. More information will be provided as events are planned.
