LAKEWOOD, N.J. — The new Warshauer Tech, a state-of-the-art training facility, has opened to its first class. It’s located adjacent to Warshauer Electric Supply’s 45,000 sq. ft. Lakewood facility at 700 Vassar Ave. In addition to training existing trade professionals, this new facility has a hands-on laboratory “stick room” to teach adults looking to learn a new trade.
Warshauer Trade’s new introduction to Electrical Contracting course is an 8-week program approved and accredited by both the Department of Labor of the State of New Jersey and Ocean County. This class will guide the students through all aspects of electrical contracting. All graduates will receive a certificate of completion, along with all the basic tools needed to get started, and most importantly a guaranteed job placement upon graduation. Warshauer Tech will also continue offering CEU’s and ASID classes in its Parsippany, N.J. location along with utilizing its new state-of-the-art classroom in Lakewood.
In addition, this cutting-edge facility will also be home to a new Generator Sales & Service training center. Warshauer Tech, Lakewood will have both air-cooled and liquid-cooled generators, associated transfer switches, and all will be fully energized and powered. In addition, it will have an on-site 100kw generator that will provide real-time back-up power for the entire 45,000 sq/ft facility. Students will learn all the basics to sell, install and most importantly service all types of residential and commercial generators and transfer switches in a real-life working laboratory. They will have the ability to earn various manufacturer direct certifications upon course completion. Warshauer Tech has been teaching certified installer classes for the past 18 years including Generac’s “Power for Profits” classes since their inception about 10 years ago. Warshauer has on-staff certified trainers, so all instruction is handled in-house for generator sales & service.
Jim Dunn, Executive Vice President, commented; “Warshauer has always been known as the go-to place in NJ for state-mandated CEU’s across many different trade associations. We were in dire need of additional space, so this new facility gives us greater capacity as well as the ability to offer new programs, courses, and certifications. We felt it was vitally important to include a hands-on component to all our class offerings to offer a comprehensive educational experience. With this pandemic devasting many industries that may take years to come back, the state and county governments were very excited we decided to offer this new electrician course to help retrain many adults looking for a much-needed career change and new job opportunities.”
