Eurovent ME awards first F-gas training certificates

UAE: Eurovent Middle East has awarded the first certificates for F-gas handling to eleven HVACR engineers and technicians from refrigeration specialist EPTA Middle East. 

During the three-day course, organised in conjunction with Italian training provider Centro Studi Galileo, technicians were trained on the correct handling and treatment of HVACR equipment containing fluorinated greenhouse gases. 

Part of the association’s HVACR Leadership Academy, the course is dedicated to all professionals seeking to learn the best practices to install and perform servicing activities such as maintenance, repair, recovery, leakage checking as well as dismantling RAC systems containing F-gases.

The certification ceremony was organised at the margins of a four-day meeting of the West Asia Network of National Ozone Officers in Dubai organised by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). 

Italian commercial refrigeration manufacturer EPTA is the first to make use of the association’s training programme for HVACR technicians. As an industry leader in CO2 refrigeration, EPTA is spearheading the initiative for upskilling and is fully committed to strengthening its leadership by qualifying its personnel in the region through further education and training.
