The successful uptake of the Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Fundamentals courses and a pass rate of 91% on the City & Guilds 2079 F-Gas Regulations training packages proves that eLearning is suitable for a highly technical field such as refrigeration and air conditioning engineering.
i-Know.com (formerly elearning-training.com) was a pioneer in the introduction of eLearning to the refrigeration and air conditioning industry. It is a revolutionary project with the aim of offering CPD and theoretical underpinning knowledge to the HVACR industry worldwide.
eLearning is an efficient tool for businesses to train employees. It can standardise knowledge throughout the whole company, across different locations and even countries, significantly condensing the time engineers spend studying, whilst reducing travelling and accommodation fees. Training can be carried out anywhere, at anytime.
According to John Fraser, MD of Operations at Star Refrigeration: "eLearning adapts the learning to the student's needs and takes away the pressure of studying." The learning content displayed on the i-Know.com website is managed by a LMS that assigns courses to users and offers corporations employee reports on course interaction, including automatic generation of diplomas upon successful course completion.
Individuals may access the eLearning courses from the comfort of their homes, whenever it suits and without a high price tag. It allows them to obtain accredited Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits that can be submitted to their institutions/boards for membership registration, or to upgrade or maintain their working licence (as required by most US states).
The use of the internet allows savings in costs and mobility with access to lessons and other training resources 24/7/365, leaving the student to manage his own training time and availability.
Star Learning Solutions delivers a blended learning platform, providing both online training via i-Know.com as well as practical training for the refrigeration, air conditioning, heat pump and BSE industries.
