PARIS - The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) partnered with to assist, primarily, developing countries in equipping refrigeration and a/c engineers with the skills and knowledge required for the refrigeration industry. 

Both organizations have teamed up to encourage continuing professional development and good practices through the delivery of self-paced courses available anytime and anywhere. The only requirement is a computer with access to an Internet connection.

With this program, IIR members will be able to purchase a range of training courses on CO2 Refrigeration, Refrigeration fundamentals, Air Conditioning fundamentals, and a newly launched preparatory course on F-Gas Regulations, at reduced prices. It is expected that these courses will provide educational support to developing countries in order to comply with their refrigeration-related commitments under the Montreal and Kyoto Protocols.
