Star Refrigeration, a Glasgow, U.K. based industrial refrigeration company, is running a weekly online quiz on HVAC&R topics, which will help professionals keep their knowledge up-to-date while giving them the chance to win prizes.
“The Star Pupil Quiz,” announced May 5, 2020 on Star Refrigeration’s website, is based on Continuing Professional Development (CPD)-certified “video presentations featuring industry experts speaking at events, seminars and conferences.
The quizzes are aimed at end users, consultants, construction companies, architects and engineers working in industries associated with industrial refrigeration and HVAC, says Star.
“Professionals connected to our industry are currently adapting to a new home-based working environment, due to the COVID-19 lockdown,” said Rob Lamb, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Star Refrigeration.
“We hope that our Star Pupil Quiz will encourage them to consider engaging in some proactive online learning to enhance their skillset.”
Every week, a video is uploaded featuring a different aspect of HVAC&R. Participants in the quiz watch the video, and afterwards answer three questions, with a chance of winning a £25 ($35.85) Amazon gift voucher.
In May, Star’s quizzes are covering “topics such as minimizing energy costs, improving efficiency, and plant installation, maintenance and aftercare. The current quiz – based on a talk by Aiden Perks, Sales Manager at Star Refrigeration, on ammonia and CO2 refrigeration solutions – is available here.
All correct entries are entered into a draw, and “the winner each week will be selected at random and crowned ‘Star Pupil,’” according to the website.
The quiz is part of Star Refrigeration’s commitment to CPD, which helps “individuals, organizations and entire industries to keep skills and knowledge up-to-date,” says Star.
