In today’s economy, staying ahead of the learning curve is absolutely essential to growing your business. Belgard has introduced Belgard University to offer trade professionals a unique opportunity to expand their hardscapes knowledge. Both new and existing Belgard customers can benefit from the basic and advanced levels of classroom and hands-on industry training provided at Belgard University. Our focused classes supply the resources needed to help grow your business.
Belgard is part of the international building company CRH, the second largest manufacturer and distributor of building products in the world. While Belgard has been a brand for Oldcastle APG since 1995, some of our European companies have manufactured pavers since the 1950s. In 2001 we created Belgard University as a forum for sharing our 50 years of industry knowledge with our valued trade professionals. Contractors, dealers and design professionals are all important to Belgard; we train more trade professionals about the hardscapes business than anyone in the industry. Due to the overwhelming success of last year’s classes, we will host over 40 Belgard University classes across the U.S. in 2010.
Belgard University provides the latest tools, techniques and programs in the market today. Here are just a few of the advantages BU has to offer:
- Receive new 2010 Belgard literature
- Be the first to see our new 2010 product launches
- Network with other trade professionals
- Learn valuable tips your competitor is not
- Earn ICPI and NCMA certification
This year’s curriculum also includes exclusive presentations from Belgard product partners including Chicago Brick Oven, Harmony Outdoors and Medium Rare.
Tim Loy of Water and Rock in Spring, Texas recently attended a BU event held in Houston. Here’s what Tim had to say, “Just writing to tell you how much I appreciated the Belgard University Class. The class had lots of real life application that has really helped out in the field. Sure is nice to know that a company is willing to invest in its contractors like Belgard does. Thanks for the opportunity.” Join Tim and hundreds of other trade professionals that are staying ahead of the learning curve by taking advantage of the Belgard University program.
