LG Air Con Academy trains students in HVAC basics
Jordan engineering students complete HVAC basics course successfully
Students from the University of Jordan’s engineering faculty have successfully completed a HVAC basics course at the LG Air Conditioning Academy.
The course has been designed to enhance the student’s abilities and enable them to acquire practical skills in air-con systems and maintenance.
The week-long course (40 training hours) tackled key topics that were covered in three days of theoretical work and four days of technical work.
The theoretical work included training on the basics of heat transfer, types and components of air-con systems, the latest air-con technologies, refrigerant comparison, refrigeration cycles and load calculation.
The technical work included practical training on how to use tools and equipment utilised in air-con systems, training on welding copper tubes, examining components of air-con devices, system vacuum and refrigerant charging, in addition to maintenance training and other technical aspects.
To conclude the course successfully, the 22 graduates were subject to a comprehensive exam to measure their comprehension and competency levels.
Graduates were awarded certificates during a graduation ceremony held in the presence of LG Electronics Levant MD Kevin Cha, Assistant Dean for Student Affairs Dr. Modar Al-Zgoul and head of LG's Air Conditioning Academy Eng. Hussam Ebbini.
“The course is intended to enrich the air-con technical expertise available in the region,” said Ebbini. Through the academy, LG offers training courses in the Middle East in cooperation with diverse universities and education institutions.
“This reflects LG’s dedication towards local and regional communities, and its commitment to empower and equip students with academic and technical skills that facilitate their entry into the job market,” said Ebbini. “We have future plans to hold similar training courses for students, engineers and technicians,” he added.
