Addressing the Engineers during the closing of the training sessions in Nairobi, Mr. Woo Won Na, LG Electronics, East and Central Africa managing director said the training was meant to impact necessary skills and knowledge to engineers to help them serve our customers with quality service and dedication.
“Heating and cooling technology is developing fast and as a result it is vital that the industry stays up-to-date with the latest developments. That is why we developed the LG Air Conditioning Academy to promote and develop the skills that the air conditioner, heating and plumbing industries need to stay ahead of the game,” said Mr Wo Na.
Opened early this year, the LG Air Conditioning Academy based in Nairobi presents a structured channel for imparting advanced knowledge and new expertise in installation and maintenance of Air Conditioning systems.
The facility enrolls engineers, air conditioning installers, developers, owners, investors and Air Conditioning Salesmen.
