The fall of 2017 was a very exciting time for the Pacific Lawn Sprinklers Franchise. We awarded several more franchises and conducted a fall training at our Queens Training Facility and our New Jersey Training Facility. In our Queens Training Facility our new franchisees learned all about the PACIFIC SYSTEM in a classroom style setting. In this training we dove into EVERYTING PACIFIC! This included an introduction to the Pacific Lawn Sprinklers Brand, operational procedures, Pacific office and bookkeeping procedures, the multiple avenues of franchisee support, advertising, and an introduction to using a tablet in the field. This training included open discussions, one on one training, and group activities to ensure a well-rounded and thorough training.
In our New Jersey Training Facility, franchisees had an opportunity to really “dive in”. Through group exercises and hand’s on activities, franchisees thoroughly learned about irrigation, landscape lighting, drainage and holiday lighting. As you can see by the pictures from our training, nothing was left untouched! We covered all of the components of an irrigation system (controllers, valves, fittings, soldering, etc.) as well as tips and tricks to utilize in the field. Proper field training is crucial for new franchisees. New franchisees not only learned how to design and install a sprinkler system, but how to make repairs and trouble shoot as well. These skills are invaluable when in the field and franchisees learned from field supervisors with over 100 years of collective field experience!
