In 1954, Bell & Gossett opened the doors to ts Little Red Schoolhouse training center in Morton Grove, Ill. To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Bell & Gossett has planned several special events for 2004. A reception was held in late August at the Schoolhouse that included recognition of past graduates from around the world.

Although the methods of training have changed from a blackboard to computers and electronic projection, the educational principles and value to students have remained true. Today, seven three-day courses are offered. Classes include:

  • Service and Maintenance Seminar.
  • Steam Systems Design Seminar.
  • Operation and Maintenance of Steam Systems.
  • Large Chilled Water Systems Design Seminar.
