F-gas Rosie scores 100% in MAC exam

Rosie-Muxlow-2UK: Rosie Muxlow, the youngest person to receive an F-gas certificate, has followed this up by passing the C&G 7543 mobile air conditioning qualification.

In January, Rosie, at just 16 years and 73 days, achieved a 100% pass mark in the City and Guilds F-gas 2079 category 1 exam. Just a month later, Rosie has now scored 100% in both the theory and practical assessment of the mobile air conditioning examination, which allows her to work on MAC systems containing F-gas refrigerants.

Tony, who runs Newark-based refrigeration training company Tony Muxlow Developments, confirmed that both parts of the examination were witnessed by an official external verifier.

“Rosie used separate tooling instead of an automated A/C unit,” Tony told the Cooling Post. “She not only accurately recovered and transferred R134a refrigerant to the correct requirements after the assessment was finished she re-charged the BMW 6 series correctly and checked the system was working correctly.”
