​Major changes in the air conditioning and refrigeration as a results of environmental and energy efficiency laws has made training an important part of helping customers keep up to date. The academy training is aimed at system designers, manufacturers and service engineers who need the skills to adapt to the changes in the industry.

The recent F-Gas Regulation and the Ecodesign Directive are driving refrigeration system manufacturers and system designers to rethink how they approach using less energy and reducing their impact on the environment.

Bitzer Chief Technology Officer Rainer Große-Kracht said:

“Thanks to our training, participants will be prepared for the challenges that they will face, and they will be able to practise working with new refrigerants and technology.”
