Note this F Gas qualification does NOT have an expiry date!
This course will introduce, train, assess & qualify where appropriate, experienced and non-experienced candidates who need to obtain the minimum legal qualification to install, commission, service, maintain, recover & leak check all refrigeration, air conditioning & heat pump systems in accordance with the F Gas Regulation EC517/2014.
Sufficient skills, knowledge and techniques to:
By both comprehensive practical and forty question on-line assessment.
Course materials, City & Guilds Certificate, lunch and refreshments.
The F Gas course is the legal minimum requirement and will need to be done first. Following on from that we would recommend the Split Air Conditioning Installation Course (City and Guilds 2081) followed by the Service and Maintenance course.
No, as we offer the City and Guilds 2079 there is no expiry date on the qualification so it does not have to be renewed.
We would recommend attending the 5 day course as you will need to cover the theory behind the systems.
No all of the engineers who are working with refrigerants will need to have the qualification i.e. certified engineers working for certified companies.
The F Gas course is not just an update of the old Safe Handling it is a completely new qualification and much more involved. It looks at the whole efficiency of the systems including the indirect emissions, Kyoto Protocol requirements, HFC refrigerants and CO2.
We would suggest that you do not read or revise any of the subjects covered to avoid any confusion when you attend the course. Our courses are specially designed to take the candidate from any level through to passing the exam provided they are on the correct course.
Yes, the most appropriate programme depends on your background, qualifications and training. We are careful to ensure that candidates are directed to the most beneficial programme that suits their needs.
Yes, actually we find that the 5 day programme is the most popular and successful because most AC engineers do not get the opportunity of measuring superheat and subcooling and need the practical experience that is an integral part of the 5 day course.
The fgas course starts at 9.30 and runs through to about 5.00, with an hour for lunch.
No as we offer the City and Guilds 2079 qualification there is no prerequisite to do the brazing as well.
