During the third week of April 2015 a number of South African BITZER customers accompanied Torsten Steinborn, of BITZER South Africa, to attend two of BITZER’s CO2 Training courses, held at their training center in Rottenburg, Germany.

Both of the courses were held in English and consisted of 2 days of CO2 Sub-Critical training and 2 days to CO2 Trans-critical training (4 days in total)

Both courses were split into 50% theoretical lectures and 50% hands-on practical training.

A good time was had by all and all the course participants returned to South African with critical CO2 training, knowledge, experience and skills – that would enable them to broaden and improve their service offering.
