LG to offer on-site training
UK: LG is to offer on-site training as an option amongst a number of new training developments by the air conditioning manufacturer.
Realising that it’s not always easy to take time-off to attend manufacturers training, LG’s proposed Flexi-courses will provide on-site training and bespoke training if required.
The announcement comes after celebrating six months of operation of its fully equipped Training Academy in Weybridge, Surrey.
LG Electronics strives to provide the right balance of theoretical and hands-on practical experience to ensure attendees are fully capable of specifying, commissioning and troubleshooting across all the company’s range of products. This is achieved through having essential exposure to LG equipment and LG’s technical advancements, including its design packages – LATS HVAC and LATS CAD.
There are other benefits for engineers who attend LG training courses, especially the two day Multi V VRF course where customers will benefit from the Approved Installer Scheme. For those that attend and pass the course, LG Engineers will support installers throughout their first two VRF projects with on-site commissioning assistance. This includes a pre-commissioning visit to ensure the installation and commissioning process is trouble free.
Mark Richardson, LG technical manager, also revealed that the company would also be running CIBSE accredited CPD seminars and other events.
