To meet legal requirements, anyone working with equipment containing refrigerant must hold a current F-Gas Certificate for the relevant category.
This training course meets the present legal requirement of EC Regulation 517/2014 (commonly known as the F-Gas Regulation). The scheme is designed for operatives who install, service, maintain and repair refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump systems, and require the following skills:
Safe handling of refrigerant techniques
Pipework and jointing skills
Recovery of refrigerants
Intrusive and Non-Intrusive Leak and performance checking of systems.
This course aims to improve, enhance, and update the skills of less experienced engineering personnel looking to get their Category 1 certification. Each candidate should have a minimum of two years’ experience within industry before attempting this course.
A comprehensive F-Gas course book will be provided prior to commencement of the course.
What is covered within the course.
Both the theory and practical aspects of the course will be covered in detail.
A demonstration of the practical assessment will be given to allow technicians to familiarise with the equipment to be used during the assessment. This will include strength and tightness pressure testing using oxygen free nitrogen, evacuation of a system, system charging and commissioning as well as direct and indirect leak checking and safe recovery of refrigerants.
Testing of Pipework skills including flaring, swaging, and brazing will be included within the assessment allowing candidates to prove their competency.
