ALPHARETTA, Ga. — LG Electronics USA has announced the launch of a new training program on variable refrigerant flow (VRF) technology, a comprehensive online course in which American Institute of Architects (AIA) members have the opportunity to earn AIA Continuing Education System credit.

Offering a high-level look at VRF technology, the training session examines modular condensed physical construction of the equipment and the energy-efficient nature of VRF systems, which offer architects substantial space saving advantages and potential Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) points, said LG.

“LG is committed to keeping the industry up-to-date on new technologies and techniques,” said Kevin McNamara, vice president, Commercial Air Conditioning, LG Electronics USA. “As an international HVAC manufacturer, LG has seen how VRF technology has influenced Europe and Asia, and we look forward to bringing the best practices to the U.S. market.”
