Do I need to be F Gas certified?

F Gas Certification is a legal requirement for refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump (RACHP) technicians working with Flourinated Gases in accordance with the F Gas Regulations – the legislation which is phasing out harmful F Gases in favour of more environmentally friendly alternatives.

If you undertake ac repair, including the recovery, charging or disposal of refrigerants, or you handle equipment containing or designed to contain refrigerants then you must be F Gas certified.

What air conditioning certification do I need?

F Gas certification is delivered in four different categories, dependant on what level you are working to, what activities you carry out and what appliances you work on.  Viva Training deliver all four categories as standalone modules or as part of a package.

For experienced engineers who already hold valid F Gas Certification, we deliver a specialist flammable refrigerant (also known as HC) training.

We also deliver Oxy-fuel brazing and pipework training, which is an ideal accompaniment to F Gas certification or refresher course for experienced RACHP technicians.
