INDIANAPOLIS - ICOR International Inc. recently introduced a new training program designed for residential and light commercial equipment air conditioning refrigerants. North American Technician Excellence (NATE) approved it for two credit hours.

"Our training program focuses on all of the practical retrofit choices that are currently available for the residential-light commercial comfort cooling markets," noted Gordon McKinney, vice president and COO of ICOR. The phaseout of R-22 in new OEM equipment and 65 percent reduction cap in R-22 production/consumption is now less than three and a half years away.

According to the manufacturer, this program will help technicians get ahead of the phaseout curve and prepare them for a future without R-22. For more information, contact ICOR at 800-497-6805 or
