Complimentary Training on Efficient Electric Commercial Water Heaters Offered Courtesy of San Diego Gas & Electric

SAN DIEGO, Calif., January 26, 2022 — Commercial heat pump water heating systems cut water heating costs by up to 70% compared to standard electric water heaters. However, many building engineers and contractors do not have training with this equipment. Now, D+R International (D+R), in collaboration with its client partner San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E), is offering free online, on-demand commercial heat pump water heater (CHPWH) courses through April 15, 2022.

“New building codes and policies require energy efficiency and electrification for commercial buildings,” says Brian Booher, Manager Sales and Marketing at D+R. “To meet the demand for trained professionals, D+R’s LEARN+ platform offers learners access to a curated set of on demand CHPWH courses courtesy of San Diego Gas & Electric.”

Courses include:

  • CHPWH System Components, Sizing, and Design
  • Measurement and Verification
  • CHPWH: Maintenance and Operations
  • CHPWH: Manufacturer Training & Resources
  • Successful Installation of CHPWHs

To engage modern learners, these courses allow professionals to learn at their own pace while exploring the building, the system, and the schematics through interactive elements including virtual tours, video interviews with experienced professionals, and design and simulation tools.

“We are excited to offer access to commercial heat pump water heater training through D+R’s LEARN+ platform,” says Jen Palombo, Customer Programs Supervisor at SDG&E. “The on-demand structure not only allows participants to learn at their own pace, but dives into specifics, providing learners an engaging learning experience.”
