The virtual program aims at reaching out to colleges across India to develop interest and project the HVAC industry as a viable career option.
The program aims to help learners understand the latest mechanics of technologies like VRV, Chillers, Inverters, R-32, and many more. Emphasis is given to the fact that good technology is followed by good service.

Enrollment is based on a payment of INR 5000. At the end of the program, students will receive certification to aid in receiving employment offers. The top 48 students from the course will get invited by DJIME for a 6-week industrial training programme that includes branch and fieldwork, and out of this lot, the top 10 candidates will get a PPO (Pre Placement Offer) for Daikin and ultimately the “Best HVAC Engineer of India” award will go to the top 5 students, giving them exposure and momentum.
