INDIANAPOLIS - ICOR International Inc. has launched its new Virtual Training Center, at, to provide refrigerant users with Web-based access to the company’s training programs.

“For most technicians making it to a training program or association meeting after a long hard day at work can be difficult to impossible,” said ICOR VP Gordon McKinney. “Now refrigerant users worldwide can access our programs 24/7/365 and stay ahead of the curve on their own schedule.”

The initial program offered on the new Virtual Training Center is “The Future of R-22 System Service.” This program details the R-22 phaseout challenge and the gamut of compliance strategies available. Along with covering critical conversion considerations such as recording pre- and post-conversion performance data, component compatibility, leak testing, proper vacuum, etc., the program also describes the complete system conversion guidelines for the company’s NU-22B and ONE SHOT refrigerants.

By February, ICOR will have two additional training programs available at the site. “The Three R’s of Refrigeration” focuses on the ever-changing refrigerant recovery, recycle, and reclamation industries. And “The Move to HFC’s” takes a comprehensive look at the HCFC phaseout and the entire array of HFC options available.

ICOR International produces, packages, and distributes a variety of refrigerants. For more information, visit
