TECHNICIANS learnt about proper procedures in servicing cooling systems along with installation and servicing of refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) units, as well as the impact of refrigerants on the environment during a workshop.
The workshop was held by the Institute of Brunei Technical Education Jefri Bolkiah Campus (IBTE JBC) and Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation (JASTRe) from February 27 to 28.
A total of 18 technicians attended the workshop, conducted as part of Brunei Darussalam’s Hydro-chlorofluorocarbon Phase-Out Management Plan (HPMP) project under the Montreal Protocol, and the 20th of its kind held at IBTE JBC.
The course was facilitated by three national trainers from IBTE.
On the first day, the technicians learnt about the environmental and human health impact and safety and handling issues of RAC systems, while on the second day they were assessed theoretically and practically on the topics discussed the previous day.
Similar training workshops will be held throughout the rest of the year for technicians of registered RAC service companies in the four districts.
