OEX leads air­con train­ing

Motor Equipment News - - NEWS -

An an­nual event run by Ash­downIn­gram and con­ducted by Grant Hand, OEX Au­to­mo­tive Air Con­di­tion­ing Train­ing sem­i­nars have been run­ning for many years in NZ, and are recog­nised as the premier train­ing event by the In­dus­try.

Any­one in the Aus­tralasian Auto Air In­dus­try will know of Grant Hand, with most hav­ing at­tended his train­ing sem­i­nars ei­ther in New Zealand or in Aus­tralia.

In fact, many in the in­dus­try credit Grant’s train­ing and on­go­ing tech­ni­cal sup­port in part to the suc­cess of their busi­nesses.

“We are very proud of our as­so­ci­a­tion with Grant,” says Paul Find­later from Ash­down-In­gram.

“Ev­ery year we strive to im­prove the train­ing, by work­ing with Grant to en­sure all of the new tech­nol­ogy and prod­ucts are cov­ered,” he said. “It is im­por­tant we also make sure we use venues that have all of the fa­cil­i­ties re­quired to make the train­ing as ef­fec­tive as pos­si­ble.”

Ash­down-In­gram has sev­eral pur­pose built, fully func­tional train­ing sim­u­la­tors which are used within the train­ing ses­sions. Th­ese not only give prac­ti­cal demon­stra­tions of how var­i­ous sys­tems work but can be set to sim­u­late sys­tem faults for di­ag­nos­tic train­ing.

The train­ing is en­dorsed by MTA, VASA and Capri­corn So­ci­ety, with Denso and San­den pro­vid­ing sig­nif­i­cant on­go­ing sup­port for each of the train­ing sem­i­nars.

The train­ing it­self con­sists of three sep­a­rate cour­ses. The first is Fun­da­men­tals, a must for any­one en­ter­ing the in­dus­try as it out­lines the ba­sics and cre­ates a solid base for the sec­ond course, Anal­y­sis.

Cov­er­ing var­i­ous sys­tem de­signs, Anal­y­sis ex­plains the op­er­a­tion of sys­tem com­po­nents and di­ag­nos­tic pro­ce­dures, util­is­ing the train­ing sim­u­la­tors to cre­ate a truly hand­son ex­pe­ri­ence. As tech­nol­ogy and prod­ucts evolve each year, so does the course, to en­sure you’re aware of cur­rent and up­com­ing changes.

The fi­nal course, Earth­mov­ing & Agri­cul­tural Sys­tems, is for those who have at­tended the first two cour­ses and wish to spe­cialise in heavy plant and/or sys­tem de­sign.

With sem­i­nars in both the North and South Is­land, OEX Au­to­mo­tive Air Con­di­tion­ing Train­ing sem­i­nars are be­ing held in Auck­land at Waipuna Ho­tel and Con­fer­ence Cen­tre from Septem­ber and in Christchurch at The Chateau on the Park from Septem­ber 16 to 18.

Course in­for­ma­tion and reg­is­tra­tion forms are avail­able on­line at Ash­downIn­gram.co.nz or from your lo­cal Ash­down-In­gram Branch on 0800 445 889.
