The B&G Little Red Schoolhouse, a completely equipped learning center, has trained more than 60,000 engineers, contractors and installers in the proper design, installation and maintenance of hydronic and steam systems. Xylem’s Bell & Gossett Little Red Schoolhouse has been accredited as an Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET), and has been approved by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) as a provider of continuing eduction for LEED professionals.


LAARS, the Customer Center is designed to specifically educate HVAC professionals about hydronic systems and Laars’ current and next generation of heating technology. Flexibility in training content and techniques was the primary design driver with both the facility and curriculum. Laars invested in live, web-streaming equipment for broadcasting training sessions, or to record for later viewing. This offers further flexibility for those that can’t travel, or for follow up training sessions after attending a live session at the facility.
