H -P Products Offers 2.5 CEU Credits for Installer Training at CEDIA 2008

Experts teach installers how to install central vacuum systems, the new Vroom™ Central and popular Hide -A -Hose accessories to maximize efficiency and profits.

DENVER - CEDIA EXPO 2008 - September 3 - 7, 2008 - For the third consecutive year, H -P Products, Inc., manufacturer of the Dirt Devil® and VACUFLO® central vacuum systems, offers installers the opportunity to complete a central vacuum training program to earn 2.5 CEU Credits at the 2008 Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) EXPO. H -P Products is currently the only manufacturer in this field to be CEDIA -certified with its "Proper Installation of Central Vacuum Systems" course. Training will take place on Wednesday, September 3, 2008, at a Denver -area home, and this year dealers will have the opportunity to install not only the popular Hide -A -Hose retractable hose system, but also H -P Products' newest product, the Vroom Central quick clean accessory.

The installation course consists of two parts. During the first, a forty -five minute classroom -style session, Chris Slackford, H -P Products' field trainer, will introduce the Vroom™ and Hide -A -Hose and review general central vacuum system installation practices. The short presentation details how the systems are installed into a home (new construction or retrofit) and why they are beneficial to the end user.

With the remaining training time, participants will complete a central vacuum rough -in in an offsite Denver home. Slackford will walk participating installers through all of the necessary steps to complete a successful and timely installation. Participants will then be asked to complete a brief written examination to earn the credit needed to become CEDIA Certified for central vacuum installation.

The certified training course at CEDIA is one of the latest ways that H -P Products is helping installers maximize their profits by teaching proper installation techniques. To promote time -efficient and seamless installation processes, H -P Products offer dealers and installers extensive hands -on training and comprehensive support. Some of the benefits installers will gain from the training include increased overall customer satisfaction, reduced numbers of service calls, and a higher volume of recommendations for both the dealer/installer and the product.

"Efficiency is the primary concern when training an installer," notes Slackford. "Dealers often ask me how the training programs can reduce their installation time, but our focus is to ensure that the installer is putting the unit in properly, not necessarily quickly. This reduces the amount of after -installation maintenance calls."

In addition to the extensive hands -on training, H -P Products offers several other outlets for dealers and installers to receive information about central vacuum systems, including in -depth manuals, PowerPoint presentations, and web seminars (webinars).
