My company has recently taken on a few contracts with some chillers, with what we had before, there is now a few Carriers, tranes, mcquays and multi-stacks, but by far the most Carriers. The "Chiller techs" we have are about to retire real soon. My company has offered me the oppurtunity to take in some chiller training.
My question to you guys, who offers the best training, is there somewhere that offers a generalized course. Or is it better to get the manufacturers training? Can anyone suggest a course to take?
Any help is much appreciated
Thanks a lot!!

Tell Larry I will sell all of my teardown manuals to him for a special price.

The guys about to retire
The guys at the factory IE. Factory training, Seminars, etc
The literature, read read read
There have been quite a few people here who ask where to find training I proposed the possibility of the person in need of training offer to be a helper for free on chiller jobs for someone who knows what they are doing, I don't know the legality of it whatever it's not like anyone ever listens to me. :-( But I thought it was a good idea.

what you need to do is get to work on learning from the old guys. they can teach you a bunch. then get any manuals you can, and read them. to me, going to a factory school before youve ever seen one is silly. go play and figure out what you dont know first. if you show effort the guys will teach you, unlesss they dont like you for some reason. the best tool is taking service calls when they are broke. it can be a daunting task, but you will learn, and have to call the old guys for help, but thats okay.

Well all the older guys I know refuse to share what they know for one they work for the manufacturers and will get fired for sharing proprietary information if they get caught. Believe me I used to work for Trane and I know the deal. It's not as easy as it sounds to get to ride along with the older guys and tap all their experience and knowledge.It might get loud!
