College equipment sponsored by Fujitsu

Eastleigh College acr students have benefited from thousands of pounds worth of industry-standard equipment, donated by Fujitsu General Air Conditioning.

Top-of-the-range equipment has recently been installed in Eastleigh College’s refrigeration and air conditioning workshops, benefiting apprentices, full-time and part-time students.

The donated equipment includes a number of fixed systems which are now fitted in the workshop for college students to install, test and maintain as part of their training.

To prepare the students for their future, the college’s facilities include the latest equipment found in the field, where engineers will be working on typical commercial and residential installations, including a new Heat Recovery VRF system, mini VRF system, and multi and split systems.

Local contractors will also benefit from the new equipment, with Fujitsu technicians providing training in the college sponsored workshops throughout the year.

Shaun Creech, lecturer in refrigeration and air conditioning at Eastleigh College is thrilled with the generous donation. He commented: “We have taken the training we offer our students to a whole new level, which will benefit those who are starting out in the industry and those looking to progress their career and come to college to develop their skills. Giving our students access to the facilities used in industry is invaluable and will give them a head start in their future careers.”

Kitting out the college with this specialist equipment gives students, Fujitsu technicians and local contractors the skills, knowledge and understanding of what it’s like to work in this extensive field.

Martyn Ives, technical manager at Fujitsu added: “The college already has a good reputation for refrigeration and air conditioning training and it’s important to keep students up to speed with the latest technology. By donating this modern equipment to the college, students and technicians from the industry will be more familiar with the products, helping them with their work in the industry.”
