has introduced its Engineers Fan Training Program into South East Asia.
Initially developed in Melbourne to educate young consulting engineers about fan types and their applications, noise management and the do’s and don’ts of ventilation design, Fantech’s Engineers Training Program is a one-day intensive training course.
Fantech’s Engineering Manager Kerry Dumicich explains that the training course aims to improve the skill level of participants and enable them to make better decisions when designing and specifying ventilation systems. The program also works as a platform for engineers to network and meet other professionals in the industry.
Topics covered in the Australian Engineers Training Program:
- Fan/impeller types and characteristics
- Fan selection and applications
- BCA energy efficiency, AS1668 Part 1 and bushfire zone fans AS3959
- Selection of acoustic products and noise management
According to Kerry, the training program is in strong demand with positive feedback received from the participants as well as industry. Participants taking part in the program may also be eligible to claim CPD points for future studies.
In 2011 more than 280 people attended the program at eight locations across Australia, including Newcastle, Canberra and Townsville. This year the course will also be delivered into Fantech’s South East Asian markets, and the subcontinent.
Kerry considers the Asia region as a very important market and a huge challenge, and believes that the training program will be of real benefit to engineers in the region. The training program for Asia would focus on bringing engineers and contractors up to speed, providing basic information on air movement and noise management as well as the latest ventilation systems.
