Toshiba has opened two new air conditioning training centres in recent months, one at its Leatherhead headquarters and a new facility in Manchester to serve the North.

They are part of a new network of 13 training centres being opened at Toshiba and distributor locations across the country.

The new centres will operate all-year-round, with a scheduled programme of advertised courses, supported by bespoke training to meet specific installer and end user needs.

Between them, the two new centres will have capacity to cater for more than 1000 engineers a year. Added to the capacity of the other centres in the network, it gives Toshiba the ability to train more than 2000 people each year, making it one of the most significant providers of air conditioning training in the UK.

It includes training in the installation and use of Toshiba’s award-winning refrigerant management and protection systems, which offer complete reassurance for building owners and occupants.

The North of England training centre, based at Middleton in Manchester, is equipped with a fully operational RD6 leak detection system.
