2018 Regional Training Program - West Bend, WI Tuesday, September 11 to Friday, September 14, 2018
The Basic Arena Refrigeration course introduces participants to the cycle of refrigeration and primary mechanical components of an ice rink refrigeration system. Participants will learn the importance and the role logbooks play in maintenance of the refrigeration equipment. Participants will gain an understanding of how the refrigeration cycle relates to the installation and maintenance of a quality ice surface. Participants will also learn how to identify potential energy savings through efficient operations of the refrigeration system. Participants will complete a written exam on the last day of the course.
This course is the ideal class for any ice rink employee. Administrative and managerial staff will take away an in-depth knowledge on assessing risk and understanding potential liability, while operations staff will become more familiar with their role in safeguarding their facility through documentation, compliance with OSHA regulations, and the importance of indoor air quality. Presentations on emergency action plans, conducting facility walk through, facility cleaning, and the importance of preventative maintenance, help round out this course.
