Sontay has expanded its range of training by introducing a new Smart Communication course to its Sontay Academy programme. With this new addition, its other informative CPD accredited courses and its status as a BCIA training partner, Sontay is proving its commitment to training and development for the industry.

The Smart Communication course covers various topics including what smart communication is, the different protocols, the key features and installation benefits as well discussing the products available, their plus points and how smart communication is going to change the HVAC industry in the future. The programme also looks at an example of a BACnet installation and comparing the installation to a standard one.
