LAS VEGAS, June 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Las Vegas based Water Works Industry Solutions ("WWIS") announced a spin off to their recently unveiled training DVD series, Training and Installation "The Basics," with the release of the same training series formatted for hand-held devices, which can be used in the field to review or for on-site training.
"We had such an overwhelming response to the DVD series and were being asked time and time again for a way to take the training into the field,' stated Nick Reviglio, WWIS co-founder, 'With hand-held devices it was easy to see the solution. We were able to reformat our training videos to run on mobile devices, such as a video iPod, and can now offer this unique training to our customers."
All 33 waterworks installations and introductory lessons from Training and Installation, "The Basics" are available as a group set. Currently, customers who purchase these videos receive a complimentary iPod, fully loaded and ready for the field. WWIS Market Director Shannon Diem expressed, "To take on-site training to such a degree is unheard of in this industry. Foremen now have a portable training tool to use for reviewing upcoming installations or for downtime out in the field."
WWIS has brought the next generation of laborers a training tool with which they are familiar. Creating a training series for hand-held devices such as an iPod with MPEG-4 video and AAC-LC stereo audio allows the user to review lessons on the fly, whether it is in the field or in a classroom setting.
"The Basics" was designed by educators and waterworks industry professionals to help aid in the understanding and safety of common waterworks terms, parts and general installations. Lessons were created in part by working with industry manufacturers and following associations such as AWWA, Uni-Bell and DIPRA's standards for consistency and accuracy. Lessons cover a range of waterworks installations including, PVC (C-900 and SDR-35), ductile iron, restrainers, tapping sleeves, service saddles, service line fittings, couplings, and conduit.
"To place training on a video iPod was inevitable," stated Holly Hartzell-Reviglio, WWIS co-owner, "... our goal is to make training easier and for as many platforms as possible."
