Airedale International Air Conditioning, Leeds, UK, January 27, 2014

Leading British manufacturer of precision air conditioning, IT cooling, chiller and comfort solutions, Airedale International, has now published its 2014 programme of training courses which it will run from its new site just two miles from Leeds city centre.

Airedale has been instructing apprentice and experienced engineers alike in refrigeration and air conditioning basics, installation, commissioning, maintenance and design principles since the 1980s. A CITB Construction Skills approved centre, the cooling systems expert also offers industry recognised training in F-Gas J11, JO4 & JO5 Pipework & Brazing and Electrics.

To support the all-essential theory, delegates are provided with plenty of opportunities to develop their practical skills using the dedicated air conditioning and electrical training rigs and brazing assemblies.

Training is delivered by fully qualified Airedale instructors, all with many years’ experience in engineering, refrigeration, installation and service, and is carefully tailored to the needs of the delegates attending each session. Airedale also works with individual employers to develop more tailor-made tuition for groups, to meet a specific learning need.

Airedale is also now accredited by CIBSE to deliver continuing professional development (CPD) to installing contractors, building service and consulting engineers interested in deepening their knowledge of HVAC technologies and applications relevant to data centres. CPD subjects on offer cover data centre cooling including aisle containment, low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants and free-cooling chiller technology. CPD sessions are also available dealing with energy efficiency opportunities involving free-cooling and the latest component technologies, and explaining power usage effectiveness (PUE), energy efficiency ratio (EER) and European seasonal energy efficiency ratio (ESEER) calculations and how they are considered as part of system design. 

Keith Nicholls, Training Manager at Airedale is passionate about the importance of training: “As businesses strive to keep pace with changes in legislation and challenging environmental objectives, engineers need to be more skilled than ever. Taking aside regulatory compliance, it pays dividends to invest in training, not only from point of view of the individual’s personal development and commitment to their employer, but also in order to develop and maintain the skills and knowledge needed to maximise the operational efficiency of business critical cooling applications.”
