The revision includes lists of training facilities in Europe with the type of training offered (theoretical and/or practical) by type of low GWP refrigerant.

AREA first issued the guidance In June 2011 with two objectives: establish the general AREA position on use of low GWP refrigerants and set the basic competence requirements for RACHP contractors dealing with low GWP refrigerants.
