Dutch term or phrase: technical/educational abbreviations
I am translating a batch of CVs in which a number of abbreviations keep cropping up that I can't trace. Most come in a list, with no context, so any help would be appreciated:
projectleider gebouwinstallaties e&w (what is e&w?)
Verlichtingskunde (PBNA?)
TBS?-Kliniek
W+E+sprinkler (W+E?)
CCK/LAB (no context at all)
TVVL luchtbehandeling en geluid
TVVL klimaat (what is TVVL?)
MIT (WI en WII)
MTS (I know what this is, but what is W?)
The AOC in Gouda - its a building of some sort, does anyone know what?
Climate control C SBS/process control SBS/refrigeration engineering C SBS. What do all these initials stand for?
And lastly, a translation for Hogere Installatie Techniek?
I'm sorry I can't provide more context - these are all done in bullet point format, because presumably it's perfectly clear to a Dutch employer what all these things are.
