ANAHEIM, Calif. — Source Refrigeration & HVAC has announced the opening of its new 12,000-square-foot Technical Training Center located at the company’s headquarters in Anaheim, Calif. The new facility, which was relocated from Chino, Calif., will host training for more than 300 Source technicians annually as well as tailored programs for key customer groups.

The training center includes a full grocery store set-up, featuring low-temperature cases, medium-temperature cases, walk-in coolers, all leading brands of energy management system (EMS) controls, self-contained cases, and an equipment room with two operating racks. The center was also enhanced with the addition of desiccant dehumidification, packaged HVAC systems, and construction training areas. Source’s internally-developed training curriculum which consists of both classroom and hands-on learning includes eight levels of service technician training, construction training, and leadership training.

“No one else in the commercial refrigeration and HVAC industry is as committed to the training and development of their technical field teams as Source is,” said CEO Bruce Buchholz. “The result of this investment is the best technically trained field team in the industry, which allows us to provide the best solutions for our customers.”

Buchholz further explained that locating the center at the headquarters facility enables more direct engagement and communication between technician-trainees and corporate staff.

“This new training center demonstrates first-hand to our employees and customers our commitment to technical training, which ultimately means better quality service for our customers,” said Buchholz.
