FGAS Logic Level 3 Training Course

Refrigeration training course by CCTS are for operatives who want to work on refrigeration and air-conditioning. Our refrigeration courses are designed and delivered with you in mind at our modern, well equipped centre in Belfast. Regulated Qualification in Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases on Refrigerant Systems (Category I-IV) This course focusses on the major principles of Fluorinated Gases (F-Gas) and Ozone depleting substances (ODS) in stationery refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump systems. If you work with refrigerants on a day-to-day basis and want to expand your skill set, Logic4training can provide you with the right training to meet all of the legal requirements for working with F-Gas and other ozone depleting substances. Successful candidates will be covered for leak checking, refrigeration recovery, service and maintenance and installation. Brazing pipework is also included.

  • Course overview

    LOGIC Certification - Regulated Qualification in Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases on Refrigerant Systems (Category I-IV)

    These regulated RQF qualifications are for learners that wish to work in the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump industries with fluorinated greenhouse gasses. These qualifications are designed for learners to meet the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2015/2067.

    • LCL Level 3 Award in F-Gas: Install, Service, Maintain, Recovery, Decommission and Leakage Checking of Systems (Category I)
    • LCL Level 3 Award in F-Gas: Install, Service, Maintain, Recovery, Decommission and Leakage Checking of Refrigerant Systems with a Charge of less than 3kg (6kg if hermetically sealed) (Category II)
    • LCL Level 2 Award in F-Gas: Recovery of Refrigerant Systems with a Charge of less than 3kg (6kg if hermetically sealed) (Category III)
    • LCL Level 2 Award in F-Gas: Leakage Checking of Refrigerant Systems (Category IV)

    EU Mutual Recognition:

    Article 10 of the EU F-Gas Regulation, (EU) 517/2014, requires that Member States give mutual recognition to certification of suitable qualifications from other EU countries. The conditions for mutual recognition are set out in Article 10 of Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/2067. In GB & NI, the EU F-Gas Regulation is implemented by the Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases Regulations 2015 (SI No. 310) & NI (SI No. 425).  Logic Certification Limited is a named personnel certification and evaluation body as set out in Part 3, Article 8(1) and (NI Part 2, Article 6(1)) of these Regulations, which relate to the certification and evaluation bodies for the purposes of Article 4 of Commission Regulation (EU 2015/2067 (issue and contents of certificates).

  • Entry Requirements

    The F-Gas refrigeration course is for experienced operatives who work with refrigerants on a day-to-day basis. Operatives must be confident in all aspects of refrigerant handling, from both the theory and practical requirements.

  • Do I need this course?

    If you are working in the air-conditioning and refrigeration industry and need to meet the legal requirements for working with Fluorinated Gases (F-Gas) and other ozone depleting substances.It is also a requirement that the company or operative (sole trader) be registered with a Fgas Certification Body for the category they wish to work with. Examples of Fgas Registration Bodies are below:-

  • Course content/Syllabus

    The F-Gas refrigeration course includes the theory behind the requirements and procedures to test, fill and recover refrigerant. Content is based upon the Fluorinated and Greenhouse Gas Regulations 2009, EC842/006 and EC303/2008.

    The following elements are covered:

    • Identify basic systems, terms, principles, units and how these relate to theory and thermodynamics of vapour compression cycles and refrigerants
    • Identify the causes and effects of global warming and climate change
    • Identify causes and effects of ozone depletion
    • Identify stationary refrigerant, air conditioning and heat pump system components, functions and leakage risk
    • Identify the hazards and safe working practices for the installation, commissioning and handling of refrigerants
    • Fabricate and examine pipework
    • Undertake pressure testing, evacuation and record completion
    • Undertake refrigerant charging, leak checking and record keeping
    • Undertake recovery of refrigerant and oil and prepare for disposal

    The F-Gas assessment consists of a multiple choice question paper, taken online and a practical assessment.

  • Need extra time to revise?

    Please Note: Your exam will take place at the end of the course. However, if you feel you require additional study time, you may choose to come back at the end of the next course (Please inform your class tutor if you wish to delay your exam time until the end of the next available course) for more information refer to our website Terms & Conditions of Service

  • Reading Material/Test book Required?

    As part of the course candidates will be provided with a copy of the CITB Safe Handling of Refrigerants (including pipework and brazing) training manual.
