Emerson frees online courses

USA: Emerson has announced it will support customers during the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak by offering free online courses through the remainder of 2020. 

The most up-to-date information on Emerson products including Copeland compressors for air conditioning and refrigeration applications as well as refrigeration equipment will be available online.

“We realise that our customers in the HVACR industry are undergoing tremendous disruption during this global pandemic,” said technical services director Brad Thompson. “In many cases, they are working with fewer personnel and making big changes to the way they are accustomed to doing business. Encouraging our customers to continue their professional education during this challenging time is one way we can help them to adjust to their changing circumstances.”

One of the free learning plans highlights the new Copeland ZPS*K6/KC two-stage scroll compressor, including product application, basic operation, device layout and connections and resources for product support.

In addition, learning plans and associated courses will also be available on walk-in refrigeration, condensers, rack systems, refrigeration showcases and bottle coolers, as well as courses on Copeland products, Dixell and Cooper-Atkins.
