The commitment of Centro Studi Galileo to contribute spreading knowledge and skills on Refrigeration and Air Conditioning throughout the world proceeds relentlessly: in June three international courses have taken place, organized by the renowned HVAC/R training body, often in collaboration with the United Nations.
The first round of theory and practice lessons was conducted in Nigeria: entitled “Training of Technicians – Energy Efficiency Applied to RAC Best Practices”, it was carried out on 15-17 July in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme – UNDP, and even welcomed the participation of Mr John Akhabue, President of NARAP, the Nigerian RAC Association. The course was the continuation of an educational journey that includes 6 trainings overall linked together – 4 for Technicians, 2 for Trainers from the African country. All events are led with dedication by the National Ozone Officer, Mr Idris Abdullahi Ishaka, and take place in a local leading RAC company – Coolplus Ltd – thanks to the tight cooperation with its CEO Mr Ade Awujoola, who’s further a Consultant for CSG.
CSG’s international agenda further moved virtually to Malta, where the “F-Gas Best Practices: Training and Certification for Malta” training and certification session took place on 4 June, concluding a project that started back in March of 2021; this led to the achievement of the F-Gas License for the whole crew of a Navy ship, in collaboration with the local certification body Bureau Veritas.
Full face-to-face lessons are finally back in Egypt, where the “Train-the-Trainers Alternative Refrigerants Good Service Practice Workshop” is taking place starting 28 June until 8 July 2021, delivered by CSG in cooperation with the Italian Association of Refrigeration Technicians – ATF and the United Nations Environment Programme – UNEP. The event is taking place in the brand-new, freshly inaugurated and equipped Sharabia training centre and will thus count on the participation of Mr Eng Marco Buoni, President of the European RAC Association AREA, a reality that represents 25 national Associations from the EU.
All courses, whether held remotely or in person, are taught by one of the most appreciated Expert Trainers of Centro Studi Galileo, Mr Gianfranco Cattabriga, a veteran of international experiences.
