In Germany:

From two-day practitioners' workshops in Frickenhausen (near Stuttgart, Germany) to afterwork workshops throughout Germany. The trainings are characterized by a strong practice orientation. Requirement for the trainings: Apprenticeship as a manufacturer of refrigerating plants, Mechatronics Engineer or professions with a comparable apprenticeship that enables you to assemble, install, service and repair refrigerating plants.

Moreover, GEA also offers trainings about the natural refrigerant R744 (CO2). In many fields of the refrigeration and air-conditioning industry, CO2 as a natural refrigerant has won recognition in the last few years. This development was mainly driven by the growing environmental awareness in numerous markets. Crucial for CO2 (R744) in comparison to other natural refrigerants is the fact that CO2 is not only an environmentally-friendly refrigerant for supermarkets. Also in security matters, concerning the handling with significantly higher pressures, it is superior to other solutions.

Nowadays, transcritical CO2 systems are not widespread yet and many companies lack practical experience. Therefore GEA put a fully functional-transcritical CO2 supermarket booster system into operation in its training centre in Frickenhausen, Germany to make the workshops a "hands-on" experience.
