ST. LOUIS - Emerson Climate Technologies has announced the 2007-08 schedules for its training seminars, including the Copeland Scroll™ Air Conditioning Training Seminar and Compressor Operation and Service Seminar. All of the seminars are offered by Emerson’s Educational Services division.

The Copeland Scroll Air Conditioning Training Seminar is a half-day seminar for service technicians focused on air conditioning system fundamentals, Copeland Scroll technology, and alternative refrigerants. Seminars will be held at various locations between September 2007 and May 2008 and will last approximately four-and-a-half hours.

The Compressor Operation and Service Seminar (COSS) provides detailed, hands-on training related specifically to compressor operation and service. Students learn troubleshooting techniques, explore system components, and perform a hands-on teardown. The curriculum, which has been significantly updated for the new season, reflects Emerson Climate Technologies’ continued focus on integrated systems and networks. The latest version of the course has expanded treatment of advanced scroll technology, including modulation techniques. The three-day seminars will be held at various locations between September 2007 and May 2008.

Educational Services is also offering new versions of its Specialized Technology Training (STT) Days for the upcoming season. Each of these full-day seminars provide an intensive study of a single topic, including scroll compressors, screw compressors, and refrigeration troubleshooting. Additional STT courses offering extensive compressor teardown or system simulator training are offered at Emerson Climate Technologies headquarters in Sidney, Ohio.

“The updated versions of these seminars emphasize the commitment of Emerson Climate Technologies to continually meet the educational needs of HVACR contractors,” said Larry Banas, director of Emerson Climate Technologies’ Educational Services. “Contractors should take full advantage of the opportunities we have developed for them to help their businesses grow and prosper in our ever-changing industry.”

Many Emerson Climate Technologies seminars are approved by North American Technician Excellence (NATE) for use towards NATE recertification.
