Who should attend

This course is intended for owners, plant operators, supervisors, engineers and designers. Attending this course will develop the skills and capabilities that will enhance the ability to be smart consumer of refrigeration engineering, design and build services. For contractors, attending this course will get the latest information on system design and operating practices. This course will give the delegates knowledge essential to achieve a competitive advantage.

About the course

This course is designed specially to improve the qualifications of the trainees in order to satisfy the requirements of the refrigeration engineering. The course deals with the maintenance and troubleshooting of Refrigeration systems.

The course including the principle of refrigeration cycles, refrigeration cycle components, different types of refrigeration systems, special tools and instruments for refrigeration technician, servicing of refrigeration cycle, service diagnosis and repairs, Inspection and maintenance of refrigeration components and system and testing and troubleshooting of refrigeration components.

This course covers all aspects of refrigeration operation maintenance & troubleshooting for systems used in industry. It also covers the latest technology in energy efficiency practices building automation systems. Maintenance management, and troubleshooting principles is very important for participants to learn it and return to their work to apply and implement maintenance programs for their system. This course includes a CD with practice quizzes that can be worked on your computer; however, this course does not require a computer.
