InSinkErator Offers NKBA-CEU Program for Kitchen Designers



RACINE, Wis. — March 8,
2010 —
InSinkErator, the leading manufacturer of food waste disposers
and instant hot water dispensers, is now an official Continuing Education Unit
(CEU) Provider with the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA). Through
the NKBA’s support, InSinkErator recently launched the company’s first NKBA-CEU
program, “Solutions for Sinks – Sustainable Kitchen Design.”                                                        


The course is aimed at educating
designers about the sink appliances to consider when designing a “green”
kitchen. These live, one-hour sessions will begin with the different types of
in-home water purification systems available and how to select a delivery system
that fits client needs. Participants will also learn about the household and
community waste management processes that impact kitchen design and how food
waste, when sent through a disposer and household plumbing to wastewater
treatment facilities, can be turned into renewable energy and beneficial
fertilizer for farmers, landscapers and home gardeners.


“InSinkErator is very pleased to
become a CEU Provider Partner with the NKBA”, said Dennis Broderick, vice
president of sales – wholesale. “We developed this course to meet the needs of a
growing number of designers who are eager to learn more about how to make the
kitchen sink green, and NKBA was the natural organization to work with to offer
this training. Moving forward, we plan to develop additional programs that
provide enriching educational opportunities for the design community.”


Upon completion of the course,
participants will earn a 0.1 CEU towards their mandatory certification. To learn
