Glasgow, UK (PRWEB) June 28, 2008
elearning-training.com, the pioneering learning initiative launched by The Star Refrigeration Group to meet the needs of the air-conditioning, refrigeration and building services sector, has in the last 2 months awarded more than 200 Certificates to students all around the world.
This significant increase in the number of people interested in keeping up to date and re-skill is due to the advantages of using e-learning as a training method. Online learning is a cost-effective and convenient way to develop professional skills which allows students to learn quickly, at their own pace and at any time, by accessing readily-available learning material whenever and wherever they need, with no travel time or cost involved.
"I have just completed the Refrigeration Fundamentals course and got my diploma in only a couple of hours. The way it is laid out is excellent and makes learning more interesting when you do it at your own pace, you don't miss anything like you would in a classroom as you can keep going back. The commentary is good also as you can just listen and take it all in." said Andrew, one of the students who received the Diploma.
The only requisite to access the e-learning courses is a computer with an internet connection. With this method of training students can fit their training round their life rather than the other way around.
The great advantage of e-learning is that material presents exactly what the student needs to know in a clearly explained and interactive format, supported by animations, videos, downloads, glossary of terms, quizzes and a final summative assessment against which students are marked for a pass or a fail. Students undertaking single modules can expect to get their certificate in around 30 to 40 minutes. Those studying full courses take around 2 hours to complete the programme and obtain their diploma.
Engineers' willingness to improve their skills and their commitment to maintain and broaden their knowledge by undertaking Continuing Professional Development training considerably minimise work related risks involving incompetence, negligence and unethical behaviour.

The Vapour Compression Cycle module is part of a 4-module course entitled "Refrigeration Fundamentals". This module is one part of the Refrigeration Fundamentals course, which tests engineer's understanding of basic theory and the underlying principles behind refrigeration and air conditioning systems. It will assist students to keep up to date and gain much of the underpinning knowledge required to get prepared for the forthcoming new F-gas Certification.
elearning-training.com was launched by Star Refrigeration in October 2006 as a pioneering learning initiative to meet the needs of the air-conditioning, refrigeration and building services sector.
This learning portal has rapidly become popular within the industry and is attracting significant international attention from students, educationalists and trade associations.
In October 2007 this initiative was the winner of the Cooling Industry - Training Initiative.
elearning-training.com has also built a student community of more than 3000 members from all around the globe in just over a year.
Learning content has recently been expanded to include the world's first interactive course covering CO2 Refrigeration. This is already proving successful and is being used by retail operators as their standard requirement for contractor training.
All of the courses are recognised for CPD by CIBSE and the Construction CPD Certification Service.
