This Level 3 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. The definition of a ‘Mobile Air Conditioning System’ is an air conditioning system that is in use during transit, e.g. cars, vans, trucks, agricultural, plant buses and coaches.
