LONDON, UK, 8 Nov 2019 – Toshiba’s online installer training portal, which launched one year ago and has already gained over 2,000 registered users, won the Training Initiative of the Year Award in this year’s HVR Awards. The accolade follows recognition of the platform earlier this year as Website of the Year in the ACR News Awards.
Toshiba Carrier UK Ltd (TCUK) is a joint venture between Toshiba Carrier Corporation and Carrier in the United Kingdom, and is part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
The award was presented at a gala evening at The Tower Hotel, London, before an audience of several hundred industry figures representing manufacturers, contractors and end users.
The programme is available 24/7 and enables subscribers to learn at their own pace to master the fundamentals of air conditioning installation and qualify for Toshiba’s industry-leading seven year warranty.
“We are delighted to have received this award, the second accolade this year for our online training initiative,” said David McSherry, sales manager for Toshiba. “It is a reflection of the dedicated and creative team behind the platform, which has not only won plaudits for its excellent design but, most importantly, is being widely used by contractors and installers across the country.
“Our aim is to help raise standards and ensure the trade is kept fully up-to-date and is equipped to carry out work to the highest standards.”
The site uses a combination of instructional videos, pictures and bite-sized information that users can study and return to at any time. To ensure installers have absorbed key principles and knowledge, courses conclude with an assessment quiz. If completed successfully, users can print a certificate.
Toshiba offers an extended seven year warranty on equipment based on the skills and competence of installers. Customers qualify for the extended warranty by successfully completing Toshiba courses, offered both online and in the classroom.
The courses are free to customers of Toshiba Air Conditioning UK. For more details, visit: https://www.toshiba-aircon.co.uk/training-portal/ .
