BESA training in AHU cleaning, by Hasman

This three day course is an absolute ‘must’ for all industry professionals, approved and accredited by the British Engineering Services Authority (BESA).

The ideal combination of theory and practice

One aspect of this training simply isn’t enough without the other. There is a whole lot of theory that you absolutely need to know, in order to work legally, safely and effectively when cleaning ductwork. When you know the theory, it is imperative to be able to apply it in a working environment.

That is why our course runs over several days and combines a comprehensive sharing of theoretical knowledge, with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a real working environment.

Moving between the classroom and Hasman’s state-of-the-art training facility, which perfectly replicates the working environment, allows knowledge to be learned, applied and assessed. It also accommodates for different learning styles and keeps the sessions varied and enjoyable.
