This course is the first of 3 modules making up the City & Guilds 7543 Mobile Air Conditioning System (MACS) Certificate and has been designed to provide the essential practical knowledge in automotive air conditioning fundamentals and refrigerant handling. This enables technicians to carry out refrigerant recovery activities in a professional, safe and legal manner.
On successful completion, candidates will obtain the City & Guilds 7543-01-001 Level 3 certificate in the Safe Handling of Refrigerants for Mobile Air Conditioning Systems (MACS).
This unit (01-001) can be taken on its own, as it is recognised by the UK Government as meeting the minimum requirements of the European Commission Directive 307/2008. This regulation requires that persons handling F-Gases must be appropriately trained and posses a certificate to the fact.
Additional modules can be taken at a later date: 7543-01-002 (Air Conditioning Principles) and 7543-02 (Advanced Diagnostics).
For those who are looking to broaden their knowledge and skills, this course also provides the necessary ‘entry level requirements’ for the Air Conditioning System Installation Course and/or F-Gas courses in refrigeration and commercial air conditioning.
