green cooling initiative: Cool Training


More than 45 international RAC-technicians and experts trained in 2017

On behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) GIZ Proklima has successfully organized three "Cool Trainings" in Germany in 2017. These trainings were held in March, April and October and are designed for specialized RAC experts and technician that are active in developing countries and emerging economies.

The trainings were carried out in cooperation with Bundesfachschule Kälte-Klima-Technik (BFS) Vocational Training Centre. The aim was to provide comprehensive knowledge and capacity for the operation and maintenance of cooling technology using natural refrigerants such as Propane (R290), Carbon Dioxide (R744) and Ammonia (R717).

The training was composed of 30% theory and 70% practical work while addressing the application of natural refrigerants. It also involved excursions to innovative enterprises in Germany such as refrigerant companies, RAC components manufacturers, and the refrigeration plants that use natural substances. All participants were awarded with their certificates of completion after a successful finish of the training.
