Training Toolkit for Training the Sales Forces of PVC Pipe Manufacturers across Europe

Papers # 2012 Barcelona

In order to make it easy for the PVC pipe manufacturers to train their sales forces in a professional and consistent way across Europe and to give them a set of clear reference data, PVC4Pipes has developed a Training Toolkit, a set of Power Point slides, which provide information about PVC-U and PVC-C Pipe Systems, both on General Aspects and on key Application Sectors (sewage, fresh water, soil & waste, hot & cold, rainwater, industrial). Key words : Training, Toolkit, PVC pipe, PVC4Pipes
