Instructor: Jason Leonard
With more than 20 years’ experience in the plumbing and electrical trades, Jason Leonard brings a wealth of practical knowledge to his role as technical trainer at A.O. Smith. After serving as a heavy industrial plumber/pipefitter and journeyman electrician, Jason joined A.O. Smith in 2009 providing residential water heater technical training to plumbing contractors, installers, service technicians, and code officials. As a training professional with extensive real-world experience, Jason delivers a highly motivating program with compelling content. In the Residential Water Heater Inspection class, Jason will enable an inspector to identify components of gas-fired and electric residential water heaters, recognize defects and safety hazards in relation to modern standards and manufacturer requirements, explain how a flammable vapor ignition resistance system (FVIR) works, the importance of temperature-and-pressure relief valves, and checking confined spaces.
