  3. 3. www.realalternatives.eu Co-financed by Training in the use of Low GWP Refrigerants
  4. 4. www.realalternatives.eu Co-financed by Regulation 842/2006 • Adopted in the UK 4/7/07 • Approx. 20+ thousand certified UK personnel • This equates to nearly 85% completed • However we are still running courses every month! • Update to include alternative technology.
  5. 5. www.realalternatives.eu Co-financed by Low GWP Training for Stationary Equipment
  6. 6. www.realalternatives.eu Co-financed by Low GWP Training Courses • City and Guilds 6187. – Hydrocarbon system installation, testing, servicing and maintenance. – CO2 system installation, testing, servicing and maintenance. – Ammonia system installation, testing, servicing and maintenance.

  21. 21. www.realalternatives.eu Co-financed by Practical Training Concerns • It is therefore important to ensure adequate Training takes place.
  22. 22. www.realalternatives.eu Co-financed by Refrigerant Emissions and Leakage-blended learning for alternative refrigerants in new equipment safety, efficiency, reliability and containment REAL Alternatives e-learning classroom practice e-library
  23. 23. www.realalternatives.eu Co-financed by REAL alternatives is European project that will address skills shortages amongst technicians working in the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump sector The focus will be on carbon dioxide, ammonia, hydrocarbon and HFO refrigerants. It will cover safety, efficiency, reliability and containment in service and maintenance. There will be a focus on refrigerant emissions and leakage. Delivered through innovative blended learning - a mix of e- learning, face-to-face training materials and an e-library of learning resources from across Europe. Building on the success of REAL Skills Europe & REAL Zero containment programmes Refrigerant Emissions and Leakage-blended learning for alternative refrigerants in new equipment safety, efficiency, reliability and containment
