Hill PHOENIX was presented with a Research Promotion Award by a chapter of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), recognizing the Hill PHOENIX Learning Center for its commitment to training for the commercial refrigeration/supermarket industries.

Hill PHOENIX trained more than 50 technicians, engineers, and energy engineers for ASHRAE's Champlain Valley Chapter in Burlington, VT, in November 2010. The program focused on DX refrigeration, refrigerant advances and standards, CO2 emissions, green chill closed loop systems, and the different ways to use glycol.

"There are so many changes and advances in commercial refrigeration systems and we wanted to enhance our training for members,” said ASHRAE’s Peter Bailey, refrigeration chairman of the Champlain Valley Chapter. “There are many grocery stores in this area but not a lot of training programs. Hill PHOENIX’s Learning Center program exposed our members to the latest equipment and technologies on the market. It’s rare we can offer on-site training to so many members at one time; usually a technician or engineer has to leave the area to travel to a manufacturer for training, so this program was very valuable.”

Bailey notes that with rapid changes in technology, many technicians don’t know a lot about new systems when they get to market. "The last thing you want is to have the installers be the only ones who know anything about the technology. This is especially true in the energy arena as we move to the green technology and solutions,” he said.

"What we’re seeing is a decrease in the number of qualified technicians entering this field and engineers who can adequately service the latest systems in grocery refrigeration, and organizations like ASHRAE, as well as the stores themselves, have less resources to train contractors or personnel," explained Henry Pellerin, director of Learning Center Programs at Hill PHOENIX. "Yet at the same time, there’s a growing dependency on contractors/dealers to service the equipment, so advanced training programs like the ones our Learning Center offer are critical.”

The Learning Center was started in 2005 and has since provided training to more than 10,000 industry professionals, ranging from service contractors and specifying engineers to store development and procurement personnel. The center’s key results for customers are easier adoption of new technologies and gaining the necessary knowledge to help customers get the most out of equipment in their stores.
