Panasonic opens UK Pro-Academy

The Panasonic PRO Academy is part of Panasonic’s investment programme for the UK. This new Training Facility, opened by Enrique Vilamitjana, PHAAE’s Managing Director on 28 September, is the ideal situation for contractors, installers and specifiers of the company’s heating & cooling systems to learn about the new products as well as design, installation and commissioning skills. Kitted out with working units from Panasonic’s ECOi VRF, FS Multi and Aquarea systems, the training room also demonstrates the latest innovations to the gas-driven GHP system – and the company’s wide range of controllers.

Bookings will be available online and by calling the Panasonic Heating & Cooling team direct on 01344 853182.

Training & Technical Manager, David Livingstone will be running a number of half-day, one day and longer courses covering three levels: Design & Selection, Installation, and Commissioning & Trouble-shooting.  Training courses commence in October 2011 covering both the VRF Ranges and the Aquarea Air-to-Water heat pump products.  More courses will be added during 2012.  Speaking at the opening of this impressive new facility, Marc Diaz, Country Manager said, “We are proud to offer this vital support service for our distributors, their customers as well as consultants and end-users too.  There is no substitute for practical experience and our ProAcademy is designed to bridge the gap between text-book theory and hands-on learning.  Our training team offers a full schedule of up-to-date courses providing consistent, high quality training covering a wide variety of abilities and products.  And with the development of our online offering too, we now provide the industry with the full range of learning routes.”
