Free refrigerant course offers certification

REAL Alternatives 4 Life is a free online course that provides education on the safe use of alternative refrigerants such as ammonia, hydrocarbons and carbon dioxide.

The course was developed in response to the European F-Gas Regulation, which encourages wider adoption of refrigerants with a lower global warming potential (GWP). 

The program is now offering a completion certificate to anyone who completes all of the nine e-learning modules. It is available in 15 different languages.

With low-GWP refrigerants firmly established in the market, the REAL Alternatives e-learning modules represent a convenient and accessible way for HVAC&R professionals to learn more about working with these refrigerants.

REAL Alternatives 4 Life was developed last year, and more than 1,800 individuals have enrolled in the online course since it began.

The Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) UK is also offering a free information session about the program. Attendees will have the chance to ask questions during the session.

The live webinar will run on Thursday, March 12, 10–11am UTC time, which will be at the following times in Australia:
