Course Details

This qualification offers automotive technicians the opportunity to develop new skills and enhance existing ones. The qualification is suitable for those technicians who wish to expand their breadth of knowledge in the routine servicing and maintenance of mobile air conditioning systems.

This course incorporates Unit AC1 (K/600/3391) Refrigerant Handling (EC842-2006). This unit is approved by Defra for MAC technicians (working with cars and car derived vans) who handle F-Gas. Therefore on the completion of this qualification, technicians will hold a valid certificate to legally recover F-Gas (see Background to European Union F-gas regulations for more information).


How will it be delivered?

The assessment ensures rigour and quality of assessment by measuring the candidate’s underpinning knowledge, including F Gas regulations. Learners must demonstrate the learning outcomes by following and achieving two assessment components which are set by IMI:

  • practical assessment
  • external online test

New EU F-gas legislation (517/2014) replaces the 2006 regulation and comes into force from January 2015.

Important Note: training and certification in the 2014 F-Gas Regulation are based largely on the existing requirements in the 2006 regulation. Existing qualifications remain valid.
