Star Refrigeration's eLearning Platform is a Recognised CIBSE CPD Course Provider

i-know.com has been certified by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) as a recognised centre for CPD Course Provision. CIBSE is renowned as the principal authority worldwide in the field of building services engineering knowledge and, as such, has assessed i-know.com's course excellence, in compliance with quality assurance procedures.

The pioneering eLearning training portal for HVACR and Building Services Engineering, i-know.com, now counts with both CIBSE and the Construction CPD Certification Service approval to provide Continuous Professional Development training courses.

As a recognised CPD course provider, i-know.com is committed to maintaining and enhancing professional competence through the delivery of high quality, interactive and convenient professional training for career development.

Investing in the future

CIBSE assessors agreed that the learning modules are "excellent and very well devised" and added that "the content and format is very easy to follow and the modules provide an excellent learning tool."

CIBSE encourages all members to maintain professional competence throughout their careers by undertaking CPD, which The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers describes as a "long term commitment to maintaining, improving and broadening knowledge and skills. It is about investing in the future." At present, i-know.com offers CPD courses in Refrigeration Fundamentals and Air Conditioning Fundamentals; however, a further course in the series, covering CO2 Fundamentals and CO2 Refrigeration System Basics, will be available in November. The European Training Standard for Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineering set by the Leonardo Da Vinci Project plus a free reference library are also currently in production.

Students have their say

The student community, which continues to grow steadily, also had their say: "I have learned a lot, and your staff are very co-operative and always concerned with me as a student. The courses are very easy to access and very convenient. I am now confident that when I am hired in the air conditioning field I will definitely have the knowledge to do my job right. I advise anyone who wants to learn about refrigeration and air conditioning to take this course, as it is well worth the time and money spent. Thank you for providing goods that are worthwhile; it is hard these days to get what you pay for." - S. Lomker.

i-know.com was launched in October 2006. This training initiative, which has already been recognised as a winner by the Cooling Industry Awards 2007, has rapidly become popular within the industry. It has attracted the attention of researchers, teachers, students and the industry in general as an innovative training instrument of superior quality that supports engineers' continuing professional education anytime - anywhere.
