Refrigeration learners enjoy special talk from global industry business
Refrigeration and Air Conditioning learners have been treated to a presentation by Fieldpiece, who are developing exciting new technologies to shape the future of the industry.
Learners in full time, part time and apprenticeship study were in attendance for the presentation, which featured a Fieldpiece engineer discuss the impact of the company’s products on the industry and perform a live demonstration with many of the tools. For many learners, this was their first exposure to this type of technology and a number of learners stayed behind after the session to discuss the company’s operations further.
Kyle Chester-Marsden, Technical Sales Engineer at Fieldpiece, ran the workshop and commented: “Performing these demonstrations gives us the opportunity to communicate to the engineers how they can carry out their job easier, faster and better by using our tooling. The future of RACHP is going to become increasingly important with the advancements of heating and cooling systems commercially and domestically. It's imperative that the generation of engineers coming through apprenticeships or qualifications can carry out the works safely and efficiently in order to be able to install, service and maintain these systems.”
Fieldpiece is a family-owned company that has become a staple in industry supplies across Europe and the North Atlantic. Established in 1990 to design hand-held products for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVACR) professionals, they have become a market leader in the USA and have begun to make inroads into European and UK markets as well. Fieldpiece has the largest range of wireless technology on the market and offers over fifty products that utilise the latest industry technology.
Julie O’Carroll, Head of Department for Refrigeration and Air Conditioning at Eastleigh College, said: “Industry specialists are always the best people to impart useful advice and guidance to our learners and this visit from Fieldpiece has helped them gain valuable information that can help them prepare for a future in this industry.”
