An intensely focused weekend of top-shelf mobile A/C technician training is scheduled for Friday, October 15 and Saturday, October 16, 2010 at the training facility of the Mobile Air Conditioning Society (MACS) Worldwide in Lansdale, PA.
Training classes taught by Paul DeGuiseppi, MACS manager of service training will begin Friday, October 15 at 1:30pm with a Section 609 certification class and hands-on instruction on how to properly use a refrigerant recovery and recycling machine.
On Saturday, October 16 at 8:00am, DeGuiseppi will present MACS’ Best Service Practices and Compressor Replacement Procedures. This class covers “Best Practices” service and repair methods for mobile A/C systems. When adhered to, the procedures outlined in this program should help assure more accurate diagnoses, high-quality long-lasting repairs, reduction of comebacks and increased customer satisfaction.
Its “Boot Camp” style approach delivers “everything you need/nothing you don’t” in a fast-paced, highly informative manner. It’s broad-based format not only appeals to individuals with little or no knowledge concerning the operation and service of mobile A/C systems, but it also serves as a great refresher for more experienced technicians.
