1Air conditioning distributor Cool Designs Ltd has launched an online video training programme to update the skills of air conditioning installers and service engineers.

There are more than 20 titles available to date, covering topics on installation, commissioning, trouble-shooting and servicing of both indoor and outdoor units, in various models across the Toshiba range.

Titles also cover how to access operational data from air conditioning systems, as an aid to performance optimisation and making energy efficiency improvements.

With the growing importance of minimising refrigerant leaks from equipment, there is also a training module giving an overview on the manufacturer’s various options. In the event of a leak, the system can be configured to isolate a specific circuit or room while enable the rest of the system to continue functioning. Pumping down the refrigerant or stopping the system, along with various alarms, are also optional.

Darrel Birkett, managing director of CDL, says: “Air conditioning is obviously very much a hands-on subject, particularly from the engineer’s point of view. Video training provides an excellent way of conveying knowledge and showing people how to do things properly.

“We have invested in making the films professional, clear and impactful, so that people can benefit and remember information. The great thing about online training is that it is available 24/7, and can be accessed by engineers with a smart phone working on site, exactly when they need it.”

An overview of the courses available from CDL, an introduction to Toshiba’s leak detection system and a complete guide to setting up Toshiba’s RBC-AMT32, AMS41 and AMS51 remote controllers can be found here

More titles are currently being prepared, with the aim of doubling the current number over the next few months.

Upcoming topics will include: how to set up and configure Toshiba heat exchangers; commissioning, servicing and fault finding for VRF systems (up to 10 titles initially); a focus on key air conditioning accessories, and how to install and set them up.
