D15H: The Fundamentals of Design & Integrating a Manufactured Pool into a Master Plan (German)

February 18–19 | Lyon, France
16 hours | 1.6 IACET CEUs | 16 PHTA CEUs
Invitation Only

This course is specifically created for installers of manufactured pools to take their business to a higher level by learning to apply the basic fundamentals of design. With a solid grasp on these fundamentals, and the industry-specific methods to apply these fundamentals to your work, your company can begin competing and thriving in a market that is less saturated and significantly less susceptible to economic fluctuations.

Upon mastery of the fundamentals, we’ll transition through a series of exercises on how to integrate a manufactured pool into a master plan. You will learn how to quickly render the plan on-site and include relevant information to communicate easily to the customer. By being able to show the client exactly what they will be getting, you can eliminate a major obstacle to closing the sale, giving the customer the ability to visualize how the product will fit into their own yard.
