Informing and Reforming India’s AC Servicing Sector: Training and Certification of Servicing Sector Technicians

31 Jul 2020   |   1500-1630 hrs IST

The discussion will focus on tenets of training and institutionalising certification systems that enable job security and safety for technicians, optimise energy efficiency, and facilitate a smoother transition towards alternative technologies in keeping with India’s Kigali commitments. This is the first of several India focussed high-level stakeholder engagements dedicated to the servicing sector, conceptualised as a platform to collectively engage on, and achieve, servicing sector goals as encapsulated in India’s Cooling Action Plan.

During this session, CEEW and Shakti will present research findings and formally release two studies related to training and certifying India’s AC servicing technicians – Safety, Upskilling, and Good Servicing Practices for Cooling and A Universal Certification System for India’s refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Servicing Sector. This dialogue will bring together key experts in government and implementing agencies to deliberate on these research findings, with the aim of benefiting holistic growth and development of this large labour force to aide India’s clean cooling transition.
