Complimentary Paragon Kiln Maintenance Seminar October 24 - 25, 2014


We hope you can attend the 1–1/2 day Basic Kiln Maintenance Seminar this October 24 - 25, 2014. There is no charge for the seminar or the meals, which include two lunches and one dinner.

The basic seminar is intended to provide you with the latest techniques and concepts for keeping kilns firing well into the future. Work on kilns with greater confidence. Gain a deeper understanding of basic electricity, kiln electrical installation, the multimeter, switch replacement, electrical troubleshooting, element replacement, and much more. Feel free to bring questions. You do not need to bring tools.

John Hohenshelt Sr., will teach basic electricity. (John Sr. is the father of the former company president.) David Snyder, the “Kiln Doctor,” will teach the rest of the seminar, which covers practical kiln maintenance from his experience in the field.

Meals and Locations

As a seminar student, you are a very important guest of Paragon. We will furnish lunch on both days and a restaurant dinner the first evening. The seminar is a great way to form friendships with others from around the country.

The first day of the seminar will be held at the Hampton Inn; the second day will be held at the Paragon factory. The hotel and the factory are in Mesquite, Texas, which is just outside Dallas.

Class Schedule

FRIDAY Class runs from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. A complimentary breakfast is served to guests who are staying at the Hampton Inn. We will serve lunch at the Hampton. That Friday afternoon you will be our dinner guest at a restaurant.

SATURDAY 8:30 coffee and donuts. Class runs from 9:00 am to noon. Lunch will be served at Paragon before your departure.


We have a limited block of rooms for $92 plus tax at the Hampton Inn 800-426-7866 / 972-329-3100 (next to the Mesquite Rodeo). Please mention you are with the Paragon group when reserving your room.

To sign up for the seminar, please call 1-800-876-4328 or 1-972-288-7557. Or send an email to Teri. Please inform us of cancellations at least a week in advance.
