Navien’s new NPE has had a surge in popularity, as a result of its innovative features, easy installation and competitive pricing. To meet this demand, Navien has expanded its educational program to support plumbers, contractors and construction professionals with all aspects of installation and maintenance. For those seeking extensive training and certification, Navien offers in-depth hands on training with live fire units at its three state-of-the-art academies in Irvine, Calif., Cherry Hill, N.J. and Vaughan, Ontario. For those who prefer a brief introductory training closer to home, Navien frequently offers a variety of in-field trainings throughout North America.

Free webinars are also available, which consists of a one-hour presentation and Q&A period for installers to discover the NPE from the convenience of a computer.
“We understand that installers’ time is valuable, and Navien’s goal is to provide different levels of informative training to accommodate their schedule whether they have one hour or one day,” said Brian Fenske, Navien national training manager.
Introduced to the market in October 2012, the NPE recently earned PE the 2013 AHR Expo Innovation Award with its 2” PVC venting capability, utilization of existing 1/2” gas lines and field gas convertibility.
