Refrigeration & Air-conditioning (RAC) trainers undergo Specialist Training
RAC trainers from nine Pacific Islands including the Cook Islands have undergone a training in Melbourne, Australia from the 5-9 December 2022. The purpose of this training was on RAC installation, maintenance and repair.
The training comes courtesy of the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Equipment Manufacturers of Australia (AREMA) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), who are working together to help Pacific nations improve their HVACR (heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration) training capacity.
As a result of high-quality training, technicians are able to deliver better equipment longevity and customer comfort, energy savings and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. The Pacific Island Trainers will be to benefit from the development of training pods, which include both a split system air con and refrigeration display cabinet.
Local RAC technician, Mr. Royal Brogan represented the Cook Islands at this training workshop and said “the training was very good and helpful”. Mr. Royal will be working with NES to conduct future Good Practices in Refrigeration to our local technicians here in the Cook Islands.
