Yanmar America Energy Systems Offers Free CHP Technical Training

The Energy Systems division of YANMAR America is pleased to announce its 2015 micro Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technical training offerings. The 2015 training sessions are new and improved based on dealer feedback the company received. Training sessions will continue to be free for YANMAR dealers and those interested in learning about the product.

Class sizes have been reduced to six students per session. This will allow for a more “hands on” experiences, while the curriculum itself has been expanded to include full-day courses for more in-depth training. New to the curriculum is a full-day training course on the 10,000 hour maintenance interval, and training “tracks” will provide a focus on the training specifically needed to support engineers and mechanical contractors. These tracks include:

  • Engineering Track: Basic, Design & Installation and a Q&A session
  • Commissioning Track: Basic, Service Tools, Commissioning and a Q&A session
  • Full CHP Training: Basic, Design & Installation, Service Tools, Commissioning and a Q&A session

Students do not need to be employees of authorized YANMAR CHP Dealers to participate. Architects and Engineers who are actively designing other CHP products into commercial facilities are encouraged to participate in YANMAR technical training to improve the quality of the installed product for the customer.
