UK: Rosie Muxlow, the youngest ever person to become F-gas certified, has followed this up by gaining top marks in the service and maintenance of hydrocarbon systems.
While most students were preparing for Christmas, Worksop College student Rosie was training for the City and Guilds 6187-21 level 2 Award in Hydrocarbon Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Systems, Service and Maintenance.
The assessment at Telford-based ACR training Ltd on December 19 involved Rosie proving competency in the recovery of R600a, removal of a component from a working system, re-brazing a component onto a working system, pressure testing, vacuum, leak checking and charging R600a to the correct amount. This included ensuring full compliance with health and safety as well as checking the refrigeration system was working correctly when completed. She was also assessed on her theory knowledge and was rewarded by gaining the highest result ever recorded at the City and Guilds assessment centre.
In January 2016 Rosie Muxlow became the youngest person ever to gain category 1 F-gas certification at the tender age of just 16 years and 73 days. She also holds the City and Guilds 7543-01 Mobile vehicle air conditioning certification, and has qualified as an assessor.
Rosie is the daughter of Tony Muxlow, who runs Newark-based refrigeration training company Tony Muxlow Developments, and now regularly helps her father with training other students.
