Logic Certification F-Gas
This qualification is accredited by Logic Certification and is designed to enable refrigeration engineers to meet legal requirements in relation to the qualifications required to work with Fluorinated Greenhouse Gasses, otherwise know as F-Gasses.
The F-Gas Regulations have been put in place by DEFRA to help EC countries meet the Kyoto protocol targets. If you work on, or service refrigeration equipment, under the new EC Regulation 842/2006, you must hold this award.
Course objectives/key benefits
To ensure that anyone working with Fluorinated Greenhouse Gasses are able to demonstrate an understanding of the legal and environmental requirements of the regulations as well as being able to demonstrate the application of practical skills to successfully fabricate and examine pipework, undertake pressure testing, carry out safe evacuation and record completion, refrigerant charging, leak checking and recovery of refrigerants and oil and preparation for disposal.
Who is the course aimed at?
Anyone undertaking this course must hold a current refrigeration qualification or can prove a minimum of five years experience.
For anyone who cannot meet the above criteria SWAAT also offer a Foundation Air Conditioning and Refrigeration course. Please contact our office on 01579 348544 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
