The Smardt Technical Training Course is a four-day program designed to equip technicians with the skills and tools necessary to service and maintain Smardt products. The certification received upon completion of this course authorizes the participants to carry out regular maintenance and basic troubleshooting of Smardt equipment but does not certify them as a third party trainer on Smardt, Kiltech, or DTC equipment nor does it grant permission to start Smardt chillers unassisted. Certification will remain valid for a period of 18 months, after which, Smardt reserves the right to require additional advanced or refresher training in order to maintain certification.
Smardt reserves the right to enroll applicants from multiple organizations in any course administered by Smardt and the right to reject applicants or refuse certification at its sole discretion if the contractor or technician pre-requisites listed below are not met.
