Why follow this course?

The aim of this course is to:

  • Learn the basics of refrigerated transport technology.
  • Understand how to apply this technology to control temperature, humidity and gas atmosphere conditions during transportation in an energy efficient way leading to optimisation of the total cold chain.

The climate chamber test learnings that are used in this course give you unique insights and learning experience.

This course was really suitable for me. A good impression of the technology related to refrigerated transport.
