Mitsubishi Electric has launched a Renewable Training Centre at its headquarters in Hatfield, which it claims will double training course availability.
The new facility significantly increases the amount of floor space and will allow the number of training places to increase to 4,000 per year.
There is 12 different courses available covering air-conditioning, domestic heating, commercial heating and controls systems.
While there’s also display area for all relevant technologies, including live operational products so that course attendees can go beyond the text book to undertaken working diagnostics.
Furthermore, the company has established links with Cornwall College and South Lanarkshire and is aiming to add content on new technologies to their courses, together with providing equipment.
The company says it is also engaging with other colleges to run accredited training courses.
Donald Daw, Mitsubishi Electric commercial director, said: “We wanted to extend the traditional motion of training that manufacturers provide and use this facility to go beyond our product range so that we can encourage students to explore the wider concepts of renewable technology.”
