In 2017, A.Y. McDonald launched its free e-learning platform called A.Y. McDonald University (AYU). The concept of AYU stemmed directly from the customer due to the need for more product training material in the waterworks, pump, plumbing and natural gas industries.

In honor of the success and support found in AYU, A.Y. McDonald announced a new and improved platform as they are now partnering with the well-known LMS provider, BlueVolt. BlueVolt holds a strong presence within the industries A.Y. McDonald serves and offers even more exposure of the courses through their sharing center while also providing additional features on the learner side. 

To this day, AYU contains over 135 product-related courses ranging from introductory to intermediate to advanced. These courses are ready to be viewed, clicked through, and read by you. Use your desktop, iPad, or smartphone – it all works the same. Whether you’re in the field or at the office, AYU is knowledge available 24/7 right at your fingertips, the company says.
