Atlantic Coast Electric Supply (ACES) recently hosted a hands-on installation customer training event for PVC- coated conduit with NEC BlackGuard at its new branch in North Charleston.
NEC President Steve Osborne and VP of Sales Keith Conley led the training. Watson Sales Co. Electrical Solutions’ owner, Bruce Watson and Josh Watson, sales rep, brought this opportunity to ACES branch manager Jason Hyman to get contractors certified for installing BlackGuard PVC coated conduit. Conley and Osborne led the trainees through a presentation followed by hand-on installation training. Each trainee had the opportunity for hands-on cutting, bending, threading and proper touchup as part of the certification. Twenty-two customers completed the training and earned certification from NEC Inc.
The training offered a morning and afternoon session with a food truck and raffle for customers. Four lucky customers walked away with either a Yeti cooler or one of BlackGuard’s Butterfly Clamp sets with Phalanx Grip technology.
Conley from NEC stated, “Thank you to Atlantic Coast Electric Supply for all their efforts making our training event such a success. One of the best we have ever had. BlackGuard appreciates the great partnership we have with Atlantic Coast.”
