SAIRAC Johannesburg: Psychrometrics course opens

The skills gap found in industry is well-known and much talked about. Coupled to the training is an opportunity for senior people in industry who may be interested to share their experience with the younger generation, or possibly just a passion to become involved in training and offer their expertise and experience in these evening classes.


The courses offered by the South Africain Institute of Refrigeration and Airconditioning (SAIRAC) are aimed at the gap that exists between the artisan/technician level, and engineers. This course is open to SAIRAC and Non-SAIRAC members – all are welcome.

Should you be interested in taking up the challenge and becoming involved with the presentation of any of the courses, please make contact with the Johannesburg secretary.

In order to bring some of the vast experience out in the industry back into training, SAIRAC is on the lookout for senior members of industry to present the various courses.
