Logic Certification introduces new F-Gas qualification

Logic Certification (LCL) has launched a new F-Gas qualification designed in association with the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Industry Board (ACRIB).

The Level 3 Award is designed to give professional refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump engineers involved in the application of flammable gases a better understanding of the health and safety regulations relating to the planning, installation, commissioning and servicing of RACHP equipment.

The short, nationally recognised qualification is a useful addition to LCL's existing suite of F-Gas qualifications, all of which have been updated to take into account recent adjustments to F-Gas legislation in the lead up to the banning of R404A refrigerants and the servicing of high GWP equipment.

The qualification covers the relevant legislation and safety standards, such as BE EN 378, BS EN 60335 and manufacturers' instructions. There is an overview of the differences between the refrigerant classes used in different RACHP systems and a review of decommissioning procedures for RACHP systems, which are now more regulated.

Mark Krull, LCL's director, said, 'I'm delighted to introduce this new award to supplement to our existing F-Gas qualifications. The changes to F-Gas legislation are complicated and it's important that RACHP engineers have access to learning opportunities that help them keep safe and up to speed with current legislation. By working with ACRIB, we have ensured this new qualification specifically meets the requirements of a sector, which is currently undergoing a period of change and evolution as we move towards a greener future.'
