Commercial kitchen ventilation specialist, Mansfield Pollard, has launched its first-ever ‘Continuing Professional Development’ (CPD) sessions to support the transfer of kitchen ventilation design knowledge within the industry.
The Bradford-based manufacturer has doubled its kitchen ventilation division sales from last year.
Therefore it sees this division as strategically important to its long term plans and its investment in knowledge transfer is designed to ensure it plays a role in supporting the HVAC industry through training and continued education.
The two programmes introduced by Mansfield Pollard have been approved by CIBSE and allow attendees to maintain and develop their professional knowledge.
The two seminars are:
1. ‘How to create a kitchen ventilation system that is compliant with DW172’. This seminar gives a general overview and introduction of modern commercial kitchen ventilation systems and considerations around DW172 compliance.
2. ‘Commercial kitchen ventilation: B&ES Specification and DW172, an overview’. It is aimed at those with a good understanding of commercial kitchens, who wish to better understand the current solutions available and how to design a DW172 compliant system.
The two seminars are being delivered by business development manager Stephen Badgery, who has over 10 years’ experience presenting approved CPD’s in various fields.
Andrew Glen, sales and marketing director at Mansfield Pollard said: “Our commercial kitchen ventilation division is of strategic importance to the long term growth plans which we have in place for the development of our company.
“The strong sales performance which we’re experiencing comes from a combination of increased market penetration and a deepening of our trading partnerships with existing key accounts.
“At Mansfield Pollard we think it is crucial to support the industries in which we work through training and continued education.
“Initiatives which support continuous professional development are important as they enable participants to stay abreast of the sector’s issues, regulations and technology, and offer a structured approach to learning to help ensure competence to practice.”
