2021 TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES UPDATE:
EVOLVING TO MEET CURRENT HARDSCAPE TRAINING NEEDS

 

Belgard has a long history of helping our industry partners succeed through our world class Belgard University training program. With constantly evolving regulations regarding in-person engagement, we’ve taken a proactive approach by diversifying our educational offerings for 2021. Take a look at the programs that are in the works.

 

VIRTUAL HNA – JAN. 26 & 27, 2021

The annual Hardscape North America (HNA) trade show is a prime source of education and certification sessions each year for landscape and hardscape professionals. With the cancellation of HNA 2020, ICPI responded with a virtual education solution. The event will encompass a total of 10 hours of hardscape education including 42 individual interactive sessions organized in three focused learning tracks: Business, Installation, and Marketing & Sales. Belgard is excited to be a Platinum sponsor of this virtual event.

BELGARD UNIVERSITY ONLINE COURSES– COMING SOON

Belgard is currently working a new training portal to be launched in Q1 of 2021. Phase 1 of this training portal will focus on addressing the learning needs of those who are new to hardscapes. The program will be applicable to anyone in the industry, both internal employees and our external contractor and dealer partners. An on-demand education module will be available for each type of hardscape (porcelain pavers, segmental retaining walls, standard concrete pavers, permeable pavers). Each module will consist of 3 to 5 sections that will include a training video, quiz, and completion certificate. More details will be announced soon.

 

BELGARD UNIVERSITY WEBINARS – BEGINNING IN DECEMBER 2020

When in-person Belgard University events were cancelled in March of 2020, the training team quickly pivoted to live and recorded webinars. Due to the success of those events, Belgard University will be hosting more webinars in upcoming months. Topics will include new product demonstrations and business-building techniques. Visit Belgard.com/Training for the live webinar calendar or to view a previously recorded webinar.

 

ROADSHOW – PLANNED FOR Q2 2021

Depending on market conditions, Belgard will begin taking our new product training program on the road. Multiple training teams and trailers are currently in preparation. Following all safety protocols, events will be by invitation only and limited to small numbers. For more information, reach out to your local Belgard representative.
