I use power point slides and simulators for the "hands on" training held at the service offices. Many of the slides come from taking our factory CD's and breaking them up to get pretty direct with certain controls on machines or to cover specific changes we might have with certain machines.
Most manufacturers offer training CD's you can purchase and do the same, including very direct topics on refrigerant usage or the physics of the trade, equipment, refrigerant flow, etc. This might make some of your topics easier to create for you and then you can learn to customize them to suit your specific group.
As for hand outs, if you can gain access to any manufactures website (do you rep any particular brand?) you can usually gain access bulletins and notes which are all very good information that you can hand out and use as great tools to help others understand our business, etc.
Simulators can be very expenses to buy or build. Most manufacturers don't make too many to give away. I have made many simple training boards to help teach the hands on and have others that the factory has supplied me to teach and certify technicians to work on certain equipment. Unfortunately most of those trainers are not available to purchase.
Hope this helps you.
