Daikin success with R32 refrigerant training

Daikin UK has trained over 550 installers from over 470 companies on the use of the low-GWP refrigerant R32 since the launched of its training course in November 2016. Designed and launched by Daikin UK, the course provides a comprehensive understanding of the installation, commissioning and servicing of R32 systems.

The course was developed in response to the introduction of the 2015 F-gas regulations and EN378 update.

Martin Passingham, product manager for DX, said, ‘The number of course attendees and the rate of course registrations is a clear demonstration of the demand for R32 training. With continuously developing regulations surrounding the environmental impact and carbon emissions of refrigerants, it is crucial that specialist manufacturer training is available so that installers and engineers can navigate regulation changes with peace of mind.’
