Soldering Training Testimonials

Soldering Training with Master Plumber Ronnie Jackson

After all the fittings I’ve soldered in my plumbing career, I realized that I truly did not know the science and mechanics of making the perfect solder joint. And as a trainer for my company, trust me this was difficult for me to admit but it was true.

As a Plumbing Contractor, you may know by experience the repair cost of a leak. Such as the repair of damaged drywall on ceilings and walls, wet carpets, ruined furniture, torn up cement slabs, possible mold, dehumidifiers, air scrubbers all of which can cost your company thousands of dollars of your hard earned money in remediation repairs and not to mention your reputation as a Professional Plumbing Contractor.

For this reason we had Ronnie Jackson train over 200 of our Superintendants, Foreman, Plumbers and Plumber’s helpers in the proper techniques of soldering copper joints for domestic and commercial applications. Upon the completion of this training, all the attendee walked away amazed on how much they really didn’t know or understood about soldering.

Since the training, our service calls for leaks have dropped by 90% compared to the previous year. This is an incredible savings and truly an investment for us since we are an employee owned company and workmanship is critical for all of our retirement futures.

No pun intended, but the cost of this training was a drop in the bucket compared to the repair cost of a leak.

Thank you Ronnie Jackson for your dedication to train and all you have done for our company you are truly a Master Plumber!

Respectfully,
