A new training initiative has been launched that is designed to help foodservice equipment service engineers do their job.
The Service Engineers CPD Forum, which has been organised by CESA in conjunction with CEDA, will cover a variety of service and maintenance hints and tips, as well as common diagnosis issues and prevalent faults that occur through lack of maintenance.
Led by experts in their equipment category fields, the event takes place on Wednesday 9 October at the First Choice training centre, Cannock.
Designed for foodservice equipment service managers and service engineers, the Forum is intended to impart delegates with technical knowledge, key information and insight on day-to-day issues, through one-to-one knowledge development sessions with manufacturers.
The aim is to give engineers in-depth knowledge and insight to aid them in their daily roles, which can then be shared with their teams and colleagues.
The event has been developed as an alternative to the annual Catering Equipment Industry Technical Conference and it is hoped that it will run with the conference on alternate years.
The Forum covers 10 equipment categories, of which delegates choose seven, allowing them to tailor the course to their needs. The categories are fryers, refrigeration, combination ovens, warewashing, water treatment, accelerated cooking, induction, sous vide, ice makers and test equipment.
Once delegates have registered to attend the Forum, they can fill in an online form to select the sessions they want to attend.
Manufacturers including Foster Refrigeration, Rational, Meiko, Brita, Welbilt and Testo will all be running sessions.
The event is open to all. It costs £42 (including VAT) plus booking fee for members of CESA and CEDA, or £84 plus booking fee for non-members.
