Mobile Training Van

Every year, we take our school on the road in the Spring, Summer, and Fall with stops at U.S. Pipe Valve & Hydrant and Mueller Stocking Distributor locations. The van covers a different area of the continental US each year. There is no charge to attend one of these sessions. Contact your local distributor to inquire about classes in your area, and to register your interest in attending. Here's what recent attendees have shared:

"Great information, excellent instruction!"
"Excellent course, fun and entertaining. Engaging instructors. Good insight to pass onto contractors."
"So glad I got this opportunity. Great experience! Would recommend to anyone selling Mueller products."
"Great class with a lot of energy from instructors; makes class and tours fun!"
