Construction Product Training & On-Site Support

We’re the Northeast’s only construction distributor with enough mastery to run customer training for product and system solutions.

Your Direct Line to Construction Product Training 

As the only construction distributor in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic with on-staff trainers, customers lean on Garvin experts for technical knowledge and site support. 

Our technical product staff has been on hundreds of customer visits. We don’t just recommend the best product on paper – we also evaluate job site challenges and material-to-material compatibility before bringing you a solution. 

As experts on 7,000+ products, we can train you faster and more objectively.  Or, as an insider to the supply chain, we can help get you the most accurate availability and lead time information and get in front of the manufacturer directly. And with an entire team of technical experts, we can give you a fuller, more-tailored solution than the “University of YouTube” can.


Your Options – Construction Courses & Site Training

Classroom Training

Whether you prefer classroom, hands-on, or virtual training, we’ve got you covered. Unlike one-size-fits-all training manuals and DIYer videos, we evaluate your unique job site and performance specs, and guide you to solutions from there.

New-Product Demos

Stay on top of the latest innovations in quality and efficiency with hands-on demonstrations. Whether you choose a virtual or in-person session, our experts will explain the features, benefits, and risks of the product for your job site.

Submittals & Site Reports
