Ottawa, Ontario-based Seresco Technologies has opened the Seresco Dehumidifier Training and Certification School, a two-tiered training course on mechanical dehumidification and natatorium operation.

“Our goal is to have certified techs across North America we can refer service to and help expand their businesses,” said David Lucas, president of Seresco Technologies.

The course focuses on facility maintenance personnel overseeing indoor pool dehumidifiers and HVAC and refrigeration contractors servicing them. Level one is a free online course that serves as a primer for facility maintenance personnel, facility managers and a prerequisite for HVAC and refrigeration service techs planning for level-two certification. The first level requires 10 to 20 hours of basic dehumidifier and natatorium principles and operation, followed by an optional online test and official certification.

Level two is a two-day course that costs $500 and is only available for EPA- or ODP-certified HVAC and refrigeration techs. The course is held at Seresco’s Ottawa headquarters and includes classroom instruction and hands-on dehumidifier training from the production floor.
