Toshiba Air Conditioning joined forces with installer BL Refrigeration to host a two-day training event for consultants at Toshiba’s new training centre in Manchester.
It was attended by staff from three leading consultants, Arup, Cogan & Shackleton, and WYG, all based in Belfast.
The aim was to provide an update on Toshiba’s expanding range of systems and control technology, and develop the joint hosts’ support for key specifiers in the Belfast and wider region.
The programme included hands-on demonstrations of the latest working systems, plus a tour of Toshiba’s new web-based equipment selection and technical support tools.
These include a SEER/SCOP calculation package, refrigerant charge and fault code identification software.
Training on Toshiba’s CIBSE-approved BREEAM and EN378 compliance CPD modules were also provided, earning attendees credits for continuing professional development.
Delegates were given a live demonstration of Toshiba’s award-winning refrigerant leak detection, isolation and pump down system, which provides total assurance for end users and building occupants.
Keith Elliott, BL technical director, said: “The two-day event was well organised and offered attendees a useful and informative programme. The mix of presentations and interactive, hands-on elements was particularly appreciated.”
David Willis, BL sales manager, said: “Toshiba has done an excellent job in establishing its new air conditioning training network, and the Manchester facility must rate as one of the jewels in their crown.
“It offers a superb facility to showcase the company’s technology and train people in its use and specification.”
The combined network of 13 Toshiba training centres have the capacity to train some 2,000 engineers each year, making Toshiba one of the largest air conditioning training providers in the UK.
