The need to shelter-in-place during the global COVID-19 pandemic means many people are spending an unprecedented amount of time at home. For essential workers, such as HVAC contractors, who may be spending less time in the field, but still need to stay sharp, up-to-date and ready to answer service calls, there’s a degree of uncertainty. How do I maintain my skill set when access to hands-on experience is limited and most in-person training sessions have been cancelled?
As a solution to this pressing concern, Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US (METUS) began offering daily live webinars in late March. A different topic is presented each day, with two presentations at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. EST. Each webinar is approximately 45 minutes in length, includes a Q&A session with the moderator and is complimentary to contractors. Sessions are currently scheduled through May 15, but will continue until COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted and contractors can get back into the field without limitation.
- kumo cloud® – Wireless Connection Basics — reviews the different types of wireless network connections available and the steps needed for a successful kumo cloud installation.
