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.

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.
