Cooleasy have introduced new Refrigeration training courses to meet the legal requirement of the F Gas regulations (EC Regulation 842/2006). Our F-Gas courses are accredited by the government awarding body in the UK - Construction Skills (CITB).
Cooleasy F Gas refrigeration training courses are designed for both experienced air conditioning and refrigeration engineers and also candidates who are looking to cross train and gain qualifications in the air conditioning / refrigeration sector.
All personnel whose work involves the handling of refrigerants within the scope of the F Gas regulations will need to be assessed in the CITB J11 by July 2011.
ACRIB are concerned that with 40,000 engineers requiring re-qualification the timescales are very tight.
There are 4 competency categories for anyone who installs, services or repairs air conditioning or refrigeration equipment. Cooleasy offer the most comprehensive Category 1 qualification (CITB J11) which covers all aspects of air conditioning installation, commissioning, servicing, maintenance, recovery and leak checking on all refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump systems in accordance with the F-Gas Regulation EC842/2006, regardless of the weight of refrigerant in the system.
Since opening the purpose built training centre in 2007, Cooleasy have built an enviable reputation for offering clear, precise, jargon free information and training to our candidates. When you combine this with excellent hands on practical training on four purpose built refrigeration rigs you can be sure you are receiving the attention you deserve. This attention to detail is reflected in our outstanding successful completion rate. Whilst all the courses require commitment from the candidates, we are pleased to have less than a 5% failure rate. We are not suggesting any course is a walk in the park but we do offer you all the necessary and in depth training to succeed.
Who will benefit
Any person who requires the minimum legal requirement to work on air conditioning and refrigeration equipment including air conditioning and refrigeration engineers and technicians, all plant engineers, apprentices, personnel concerned with the recovery, charging or disposal of refrigerants and new comers into the industry.
Aims of the course
5 days for most candidates unless you are regularly using pressure/enthalpy charts and completing efficiency checks in which case a 2 day course is offered.
5 days - £795.00 + VAT (see below for dates)
2 days -
£395.00 £295 + VAT - For holders of a current "Safe Handeling Refrigerant" certificates
or engineers who are already in the trade with minimum NVQ level 3.
The 2 day course will assume you have a comprehensive knowlege of the theoretical & practical aspects of Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Systems. To achive the required pass mark for the CAT 1 we suggest several hours of pre course study is undertaken. (course materials can be provided if required)
The cost includes all course materials and will include tea/coffee and lunch.
Call us today for dates.
