F-Gas Training & F-Gas Certification video
This video shows a refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump engineer going through the tasks involved in the actual City & Guilds 2079 - F-Gas Certification Assessment in preparation for the exam. The tasks carried out involve brazing a piece, charging refrigerant into the system, identifying the refrigerant, pressure test, leak test and evacuation of the system. This practical session was carried out at Star Refrigeration's Glasgow branch.
Following EU legislation, it is a legal requirement for engineers handling, recovering, supplying, installing, manufacturing, maintaining, servicing or own refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump equipment containing HFC refrigerants to be F-Gas Certified.
This qualification is designed to enable refrigeration and air conditioning engineers to meet legal requirements in relation to the qualifications required to work with Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases, otherwise known as F-Gases. The F-Gas Regulations have been put in place by DEFRA to help EC countries meet the Kyoto protocol targets.
This qualification is valid across all the EU countries.
Star Refrigeration's learning division offers F-Gas Certification and training at any of their 9 branches in Aberdeen, Bristol, Derby, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Oxford and through our European partners at different locations around the world.
The online course to prepare for F-Gas Certification is available in English, Italian, Swedish and Russian.
