Daikin UK has trained 1,000 installers on the use of R32 refrigerant in less than 12 months.
The R32 System Installations - Are You Ready? course, launched in November last year, provides the essentials on installing, commissioning and servicing R32 systems, in line with the 2015 F-Gas regulations and EN378 update.
With forthcoming course dates scheduled to run in Woking, Glasgow, Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham, the initiative has now trained more than 500 companies and 1,000 HVAC professionals across the UK.
Martin Passingham, Project Manager for DX at Daikin UK, said: “Reaching this incredible target of 1,000 trained installers is a clear demonstration of the ongoing need to understand the continuing changes, legislative drivers and practicalities throughout the sector’s F-Gas journey.
“With the launch of comprehensive R32-based product ranges such as the innovative Sky Air A-series, specialist manufacturer training equips installers with the peace of mind to adopt environmentally friendly, energy efficient refrigerants inline with the F-Gas phase out.”
