The company said: “Re-launched on 20 November, the return of the course is well-timed with the growth of the F-Gas industry, bridging the skills gap to meet the demands of the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR) sectors.” The F-Gas course, certified under the City & Guilds 2079-11 scheme, will be delivered by Develop trainer, Brandon Clark (pictured), a seasoned refrigeration and air conditioning engineer, and will explore updates to statutory regulation requirements, while combining both theory and practical testing to ensure delegates understand the risk and management techniques needed in the sector.
It will be offered at Develop’s York, Derby, and Linlithgow centres; with course dates viewable on the company’s website, with more to come in 2024. The course can also be delivered at other locations for businesses with six or more staff that require training.
Brandon Clark said: “We are pleased to relaunch our F-Gas course this year – which has been updated to reflect the current regulations. F-Gas maintenance and reduction are crucial to achieving the UK’s target of reducing F-Gas emissions by two-thirds by 2030. This course will enable us to provide a range of essential theoretical, practical, and green skills, and help our customers successfully manage their F-Gas-containing equipment in line with EU Guidelines and regulations.”
Develop now also offers the City & Guilds 6187-21 qualification, equipping delegates with the skills and knowledge to safely handle Hydrocarbon and Flammable Refrigerants, ‘covering all stages – from installation to disposal’.
