More training centres offer F-gas courses

AS reported in ACR news last December, F-gas courses have begun running in the UK. Now details of the first 18 centres to offer the new courses are available.
A list of currently approved centres running the courses can be viewed on the ACRIBwebsite.

The first F-gas course for engineers took place in December 2008 at Ellis Training centre and led to the certification of all seven of the candidates. Read ACR article here.

All individuals whose work involves the handling of refrigerants within the scope of the F-gas regulation, need to take the new City & Guilds 2079 Assessment, or the CITB equivalent, by July 2011. The current qualifications City & Guilds 2078 and CITB in the meantime provides temporary evidence of qualification.

A spokesman for ACRIB said 'Some concerns remain with ACRIB that with only two and half years to go before the deadline for all 40,000 engineers to be re-qualified to these new levels, the timescales are still very tight'. ACRIB plans to closely monitor industry take up over the next few years.
