This course is the first of 3 modules making up the Mobile Air Conditioning System (MACS) Certificate and has been designed to provide the essential knowledge and skills in automotive air conditioning refrigerant handling. This enables technicians to carry out refrigerant recovery activities in a professional, safe and legal manner.
This unit may be taken on its own and is recognised by the UK Government as meeting the minimum requirements of the European Commission Directive 307/2008. This regulation requires that persons handling fluorinated gases must be appropriately trained and posses a certificate attesting to the fact.
On successful completion, candidates will obtain the Level 3 certificate in the Safe Handling of Refrigerants for Mobile Air Conditioning Systems (MACS), it does not cover Transport/Cargo refrigeration as this is a separate qualification. Additional modules, Air Conditioning Service & Maintenance and Advanced Diagnostics may be taken at a later date.
This 2-Day course provides training on both automatic service stations and portable equipment.
For those who are looking to broaden their knowledge and skills, this course also provides the necessary ‘entry level requirements’ for the 5-Day Air Conditioning System Installation Course and/or F-Gas courses in commercial air conditioning and refrigeration.
The qualifications will cover the following topics:
- Operation of MAC systems containing F gas refrigerants
- Environmental impact of F gas refrigerants
