We can not get tired of repeating it, underline it and remember every day: training is a necessity for all members of the industry and it is the responsibility of each fight for the massification of these spaces in Latin America.
I know the efforts of various associations throughout the year trying to create educational spaces for its members; many companies also lead this kind of alternative invited to participate to all its customers in talks presented by experts. But it's never enough, because education in our sector should be a priority.
We at ACR LATINOAMÉRICA generate content that is helpful for readers to help them in their daily tasks and solve technical concerns them and then they offer a better service. In addition, we celebrate in RefriAméricas (this year in Panama 4 and 5 June) the opportunity to have the best speakers in the region to learn the latest trends in HVAC / R. All this with the aim to contribute our grain of sand to education, fulfilling our communication work.
But there are several issues that concern me and I question: Is there enough interest in training technicians? How prepared are to face the new challenges that deparan the latest technologies?
I ask this, because I have witnessed on many occasions that not enough has been the number of people who are expected to attend some training spaces, or very few questions that are generated from a talk. What can be? ¿Disinterest, ignorance?
I dream of seeing all full of technical conference and training, hungry for knowledge, more participatory and more interested in learning. I congratulate those who already do, and I invite you to encourage your colleagues. Remember that this industry depends on what we do each and every one of us.
