UK: Toshiba has joined forces with Belfast-based BL Refrigeration and Air Conditioning to present a programme of CPD courses for building services consultants and engineers.
The first virtual CPD module on the basics of VRF air conditioning was presented earlier this month to an audience of consultants participating online from across Belfast. More than 30 people attended, representing six leading building services consulting firms.
The course was organised jointly by Ken Lawlor, Toshiba sales manager for Ireland, Paul Turley, Toshiba regional specification manager for Ireland, and Keith Elliot, technical director of BL Refrigeration and Air Conditioning.
“We have an excellent working relationship with BL and have collaborated on a number of classroom-based CPD courses in the past,” said Ken Lawlor. “Physical meetings are obviously difficult at this time, therefore switching the training sessions to online provides a brilliant solution. It has the added benefit of making it possible to extend the courses to a larger audience than would normally be possible in a classroom situation.”
“The take-up for a first event of its kind was fantastic, and even better than we had hoped. Having proven the approach and the appetite, we are now planning a wider roll-out of online training in the coming weeks,” said BL’s Keith Elliot.
