Jeld-Wen Launches Training Initiative

April 20th, 2016 by Editor

This spring, Jeld-Wen will launch Jeld-Wen University, the first of three training programs for builders, remodelers, architects and dealers.

“Given the current market conditions, we saw a need to provide our partners with the tools and know-how necessary to select and install windows and doors,” said Jim Parello, vice president of marketing for Jeld-Wen. “Jeld-Wen University’s three-pronged approach to training speaks to the company’s commitment to delivering a premier customer experience.”

The company will focus on giving customers access to training when and where it’s most useful for their businesses. The training programs that make up Jeld-Wen University include:

• Mobile Showrooms. Starting in April, four trucks hauling mobile showrooms will visit dealers and retail centers around the United States to showcase Jeld-Wen’s portfolio of products.

• Regional Learning Centers. Jeld-Wen recently opened its first regional learning center in Rantoul, Ill. The company initially will create four learning centers, with more coming soon. The learning centers will provide deep-dive training into product features and benefits, installation techniques and how to specify the right product for the right application.

• E-learning Courses. Later in the year, Jeld-Wen will launch an online learning management system for on-demand training. The e-learning courses will be tailored to all skill levels – from basic introductions of doors and windows to advanced technical courses on product performance and industry regulations.
