Federal Signals’ “FS Solutions” arm has launched new advanced online training courses and a new location as part of the company’s growing customer training and service outreach effort.

The two new courses—“Estimating the Vacuum Job” and “Maximizing the Power of Waterjetting through Tip and Hose Selection”—target experienced professionals looking for additional training beyond the fundamentals covered in introductory courses.

Management-Level Training

“These two new online courses provide convenient, flexible instruction for management-level professionals who need more advanced training,” said Gary Toothe, training manager for FS Solutions, sponsored by Federal Signal Environmental Solutions Group.

The online courses, on waterjetting and estimating for vacuum jobs, offer advanced training.

“The live training courses offered by FS Solutions are very well attended, but there is a high demand for online training, particularly at the advanced level.”

Course Details

The estimating course focuses on the mathematic and geometric principles used in determining volume, square foot and linear feet of objects to be vacuumed. Understanding cycle times and realistic vacuum truck capacities enables students to better estimate production times on various vacuum jobs and to analyze job production to determine if the job is being performed at maximum efficiency.

The waterjetting course covers the horsepower formula and how to use it to solve for pressure, flow and horsepower; the components of tip design; and the factors affecting tip performance. The course also addresses issues unique to pipe cleaning, tube cleaning, hand gunning and automatic tool cleaning. Students can use the skills taught in this course to analyze job production to determine what equipment is required to perform at maximum efficiency.

The courses include tests that each student must pass with a grade of at least 80 percent to complete the course and receive a certificate.

More courses are planned for later this year.

New ‘Solutions’ Center to Open

Federal Signal has also announced the opening of its seventh FS Solutions center Oct. 3 in Lexington, SC.

The company says the center is part of its commitment to increasing product, service, training and rental offerings to industrial cleaning contractors and other professionals.

The center will stock parts and accessories for Federal Signal’s Jetstream brand of waterblasters, along with other makes and models of waterblasters. Customers will also be able to rent the full line of Jetstream waterblasters and tools, as well as StoneAge tooling for specialized waterblast cleaning applications.

Like all FS Solutions locations, the new Lexington center will provide genuine OEM parts and factory-trained, certified technicians to advise customers.

Additional FS Solutions centers are located in Gonzales, LA; Birmingham, AL; Long Beach, CA; Houston, TX; Toledo, OH; and Streator, IL.

Founded in 1901, Federal Signal Corp. designs and manufactures cleaning, security and safety equipment and systems for municipal, governmental, industrial and airport customers. The company’s portfolio includes Bronto aerial devices, Elgin street sweepers, Federal Signal safety and security systems, Guzzler industrial vacuums, Jetstream waterblasters and Vactor sewer cleaners and vacuum excavators.
