Car Air Conditioning Training

Refrigerant Handling for Mobile A/C Systems (7543-01-001).

Duration:  2 Days £350.00 + VAT or 1 Day £175.00 + VAT

Module 1 has been designed to provide the essential practical knowledge in automotive air conditioning fundamentals and refrigerant handling. This enables technicians to carry out refrigerant recovery activities in a professional, safe and legal manner.

This unit may be taken on its own! and is recognised by the UK Government as meeting the minimum requirements of the European Commission Directive 307/2008. This regulation requires that persons handling fluorinated gases must be appropriately trained and posses a certificate attesting to the fact.

On successfull completion, candidates will obtain the City & Guilds 7543-01-001 Level 3 certificate in the Safe Handling of Refrigerants for Mobile Air Conditioning Systems (MACS). Additional modules 7543-01-002 (Air Conditioning Priciples) and 7543-02 (Advanced Diagnostics) may be taken at a later date.

The 1-Day car air conditioning course is aimed at candidates who need to hold the necessary legal certificate of competance to allow them to recover refrigerant from Mobile Air Conditioning Systems using automatic service stations, whereas;

The 2-Day course provides training on portable recovery equipment. There are some distinct advantages of using portable recovery equipment as opposed to automatic service stations especially for those involved in recovery activities only or those looking to service equipment which cannot easily be brought to a a garage for servicing e.g. plant, agricultural, buses, coaches and trains etc.

This course also provides the necessary 'entry level requirements' for the Split System Installation course and/or F-Gas courses in refrigeration and commercial air conditioning for those looking to enter this line of work.
