F-gas Rosie scores 100% in MAC exam
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.”
Rosie passes F-gas test at just 16 – January 21, 2016
