Airedale lists 2017 training courses
UK: Air conditioning and refrigeration specialist, Airedale International, has published its 2017 training programme with a range of courses suitable for all levels of knowledge.
The British manufacturer, which has been running courses for over 20 years, is offering a wide range of classroom and practical instruction with topics ranging from how to install commission and maintain systems to advanced techniques in maximising energy efficiency.
Also included re regulatory reassessment courses in F-gas categories 1-4 for attendees to keep ahead of the fast approaching bans on refrigerants, quota reductions and the move towards low global warming potential refrigerants.
Airedale says it will also continue to offer CIBSE accredited CPD training which can be tailored to specific needs.
All courses will take place in Airedale’s state of the art training school based in Leeds. Opened in April, the training classroom features the latest conferencing technology.
On the practical side, the school features various air conditioning and refrigeration training rigs. These are capable of demonstrating different refrigerants and the latest in measurement and testing technology – including air ducting, measurement and chilled water systems.
It includes a fully equipped brazing area, and an electrical area designed to give a practical understanding of safe working when designing, wiring and testing electrical assemblies as well as the correct fault finding techniques.
