Total Air Conditioning and Refrigeration training: Course Description
Our intensive 10, 15 or 20 day Total Air Conditioning and Refrigeration training courses have been structured to meet the ever increasing demands on industry to meet safety, environmental and legal requirements regarding installation, commissioning, service and maintenance of both refrigeration and air conditioning systems including the electrical aspects of installation dependent upon course selection. The first 10 days of the Total Air Conditioning and Refrigeration training course are mechanical only, the following 5 or 10 days are the electrical aspects, depending on which route you need to go down.
The Total Air Conditioning and Refrigeration training courses are accredited with the City & Guilds 2079, BESA Pipework and Brazing – (commercial), along with an EAL Unit* – Maintenance of Refrigeration Systems from the EAL Certificate in Engineering Technology (QCF) qualification (*Practical elements will be covered during the course with a Project booklet to be completed by the student with an element of self-study after the course completion for us to claim the Unit certification from EAL).
Our Total Air Conditioning and Refrigeration training courses are designed to be as practical as they possibly can be, with workshop time taking more than 70% of the course.
During the Total Air Conditioning and Refrigeration training course, you will, install, repair, fault find, adapt and commission on a variety of different equipment, because we believe the way to learn is to do it!!
With ALL our courses we offer unbiased technical support and access to a wealth of knowledge and information upon completion. Once you’ve completed your course with Technique, you can be assured that our service doesn’t end there…

What will be gained in the 10 Day Course?
This certification course is designed to ensure that personnel are practised in the use of special tools and equipment used to install or repair copper pipework in small commercial and split unit air-conditioning systems. It also covers the requirements of the Environmental Protection Act regarding the construction/repair of refrigeration pipework and the high pressure implications of new refrigerants. The course ensures approved standards are achieved. Course notes/record book are provided.
Any person who requires the minimum legal requirement to work on air conditioning and refrigeration equipment including air conditioning and refrigeration engineers and technicians, all plant engineers, apprentices, personnel concerned with the recovery, charging or disposal of refrigerants and new comers into the industry.
This is a two day training course with a practical and oral exam. Candidates will be provided with course study
notes. The qualification is for those who are already practicing in the industry, or for those whose aim is to enter the industry and for those wanting to gain a certificate for their own personal skills development.
Our brand new, extra accreditation at no extra cost whatsoever. A new unique Certificate only obtainable at Technique Learning Solutions to get you ahead of the competition in the industry!
The 10 day course can be supplemented by one of two electrical courses dependent upon your anticipated career path.
For candidates looking mainly toward the installation of air conditioning systems in domestic/commercial properties, we offer an Air Conditioning Electrical Installer Course which upon successful completion provides you with the relevant qualifications to register with a Part P competent persons scheme allowing you to work legally within a domestic property installing electrical circuits. There is no requirement to be Part P registered to work in a commercial premise, however the qualifications achieved are industry recognised and meet the technical knowledge required to carry out such work. Please also note the qualifications obtained would allow other electrical works to be carried out, so whilst installing an air conditioning system in a conservatory, you could also install the socket and the lighting circuits. Obviously this broadens the scope of work which you can offer.
Alternatively, for a candidate looking to gain employment within the commercial/industrial sector we offer the Refrigeration Electrics Maintenance Course which provides the necessary industry recognised qualifications you will need.
