IoR seminars to become webinars

UK: The series of talks to be given by the Institute of Refrigeration (IoR) at next month’s cancelled HVACR Live event at ExCel will now be broadcast as webinars.

The IoR Service Engineer Section has scheduled live training webinars for the original HVACR Live dates of April 20-22.

The webinars will cover a wide range of topics including Skillcard and site safety, next generation refrigerants, refrigerant recycling and reuse, working with flammables and point of work risk assessments.

These short talks, lasting just 20 minutes, will offer practical guidance on topical issues. The sessions are free to attend and you can register for as many as you like and take part in the Q&A with speakers. CPD certificates will be issued to those that take part. 

The webinars will be recorded, so will also be available after the event.

The complete schedule and registration information can be found here.
