City & Guilds Award in F-Gas Regulations Level 2 (2079)

FGas

City & Guilds Award in F-Gas Regulations Level 2 (2079) – These qualifications enable refrigeration engineers to meet legal requirements in relation to the qualifications required to work with Fluorinated Greenhouse Gasses, otherwise known as F Gasses.

The F Gas Regulations have been put in place by DEFRA to help EC countries meet the Kyoto protocol targets.

About F Gas

Through using our bespoke facilities and equipment inside our state-of-the-art building, CI Business Solutions will help employees to achieve their F Gas qualification.

Our f gas courses provide the practical skills necessary to work on stationary refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump equipment containing fluorinated F Gas or ozone depleting substances. Courses comply with the legal requirements of EC 842 / 2006.

The aim of these f gas training qualifications is to provide the learner with the knowledge and skills to work on the installation, service, maintenance, recovery and leak checking of stationary refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump equipment that contains refrigerants classified as either fluorinated (F) gases or ozone depleting substances (ODS).

The introduction of the Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases Regulations 2009 means it is an offence for an individual to work with fluorinated greenhouse gases without holding one of the qualifications listed within the regulations. These City & Guilds qualifications are recognised stationary refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump equipment qualifications within the Regulations which become law in England, Scotland and Wales in 2009.

The Ozone-Depleting Substances (Qualifications) Regulations 2009 means it is an offence for an individual to work with ozone-depleting substances without holding one of the qualifications listed within the regulations. This regulation also lists certain 2079 qualifications as acceptable minimum requirements.

It is important to note that in both the F-Gas and ODS regulations, not all of the qualifications allow individuals to undertake all activities with all different systems. As such it is extremely important that candidates undertake the qualification that enables all of their relevant legal responsibilities to be met in relation to qualification achievement to be met upon certification. If there is uncertainty over what qualification should be undertaken, or what additional legal requirements need to be met in addition to qualification achievement, advice should be sought from F-Gas support.

City & Guilds have developed these qualifications from the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Industry Board (ACRIB) specification. The qualifications are endorsed by the Sector Skills Council (SSC) for Building Services Engineering, SummitSkills, and are approved by the Qualifications and Curriculum Development Authority (QCDA).

Philosophy and principles: The qualifications have been designed to meet the EU requirement of candidates being assessed in relation to their subject area on both practical skills and theoretical knowledge.

Pre-requisites

It is recommended that candidates should hold or be working towards the NVQ in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, or an equivalent or higher qualification in order to satisfactorily complete the City & Guilds level 2 award in F-Gas and ODS Regulations.
