Geberit Designer Training Sustains Education and Design Inspiration

DES PLAINES, IL – Geberit North America’s designer training programs educate thousands of designers, educators and students across the country at training centers, trade shows, industry events, CEU’s and seminars across the country. To date, the total number of designers trained exceeds 10,000 and growing. The continuous training has a marked impact on the industry and the bathroom marketplace.

“We recognized the single biggest issue: a lack of understanding of the wall-hung concept in this country, coupled with unfamiliarity with advanced flush valves. On the other hand, consumer interest was growing,” says Ronn Jefferson, Training Manager for Geberit. “We wanted to do our part to support designers by helping them get more information about modern bathroom design so they could meet their clients’ objectives. What was well known in European bathroom design is now rapidly growing in our country, and designers and their clients want to know more about it. Geberit training brings it home to them.”

Geberit stresses ongoing training for designers and plumbing professionals throughout the world. Only through a commitment to lifelong learning can Geberit partners, and through them Geberit itself, achieve lasting success. As the US population ages and “aging-in-place” continues to be a central concern for homeowners, Geberit is especially interested in the education and further training of the next generation of interior designers and design specialists.

Affiliations with professional design organizations are also important to Geberit. The company aligns itself with design associations that emphasize the importance of education. For example, Geberit, in association with the NKBA, promotes the highest standards of education for kitchen and bath-related disciplines. The association has helped and continues to prepare thousands of students for careers in the kitchen and bath industry. Geberit is also a member of the USGBC, an EPA WaterSense® partner and a charter sponsor of the Alliance for Water Efficiency in the United States and throughout the world.

Geberit’s comprehensive training programs include CEU courses, seminars across the country featuring leading authorities in kitchen and bathroom design, and prominent industry trade show training and presentations.

The Geberit Group is an integrated, global company and European leader in the field of sanitary products, headquartered in Switzerland. Geberit maintains a strong local presence on most continents, including North America, providing concealed systems for wall-hung and floor-mounted toilets and fixtures. Geberit systems improve the look of any bathroom by hiding unsightly plumbing hardware. Replacing a standard toilet with the Geberit system results in more usable space, improved hygiene and better accessibility. The unique dual-flush valve saves water and is practically maintenance-free. Geberit also offers cable-controlled bath waste and overflows in a variety of designer finishes. Critical working parts are outside the waterway, ensuring years of trouble-free operation.
