10 Day Refrigeration and Air Conditioning New Starter Course FAQ'S

  • I am new to the air conditioning industry what qualifications do I need to get started?

    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.

  • Does the F Gas qualification expire?

    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.

  • Is there any recommended reading before coming on the course?

    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).

  • Why do I need the F Gas before doing the SACIC course?

    As you will be handling fluorinated gases during the SACIC course you will be required to have the legal qualification to do so.

  • Does anyone else offer the City and Guilds 2081?

    No, currently Ellis Training is the only centre capable of offering this qualification.

  • I heard that there is a new specification for the brazing out. What is it that you are offering.

    We offer the updated BRA specification which has now been accepted throughout the industry.

  • Do I only have to get one engineer qualified with the company?

    No all of the engineers who are working with refrigerants will need to have the qualification i.e. certified engineers working for certified companies.
