Athens, 5th – 9th September 2019

Within the scope of the project and in cooperation with the corporate partner ICON Group, HBZ designed a certified training offer in the field of refrigeration and air conditioning technology for Greek companies. Bernd Lachnitt conducted the training with nine employees of Greek companies on the premises of the company partner. All participants successfully passed the exam.

The new European legislation requires specific certificates in the field of refrigeration and air conditioning technology for new buildings and renovations. In Greece, companies do not have the possibility to obtain these certificates. They have to travel abroad. There are great market opportunities for German training providers in the field of sustainable building if the offers are tailored to the Greek market. The participating companies will now test whether the market opportunities for certified companies in Greece (e.g. with regard to public procurement) will increase. If this is the case, a common platform with educational services should be considered.
