Toshiba launches new training programme
Following the recent changes to the F-Gas Regulation, a new course outlines the responsibilities of all parties, how the regulation relates to different refrigerants, record keeping requirements and the key timetable of dates for implementation of the changes.

Approved by CIBSE under its CPD programme, legislation updates include the recently revised Part L of the Buildings Regulations and how the latest changes relate to the design of air conditioning systems.

Also with CPD accreditation, other courses cover the application of SEER and COP in relation to VRF systems, introduction to VRF and VRF compressor technology, air-to-water heat pumps, the design and application of air-cooled VRF systems, the operation of BREEAM refrigerant pump down credits and BSEN378, and an update on EcoDesign LOT10 - the Energy Labelling Directive.

In addition, Toshiba is offering a module on Building Management System (BMS) by special arrangement.

General manager, David Dunn, said: 'Training the next generation of installers and designers is vital to ensure the future of the air conditioning industry. This requires continual investment in the skills and knowledge base of the trade to ensure people are equipped to deliver the high quality projects required by clients today.

'The need for training is heightened by the rapid advances in technology and practices as a result of new environmental legislation, particularly in relation to energy efficiency, refrigerants and health and safety.'

The expanded range of courses covers both practical and theoretical aspects, with the focus on optimising system design and performance to ensure occupant comfort, energy efficiency and environmental protection.
