REAL Alternatives 4 Life has established a process for training centres to hold theory assessments online. The free online course now extends to 17 European countries and languages, and the assessments are now available in virtual format, allowing people in lockdown the opportunity to complete them online.
The course provides education on the safe use of alternative refrigerants. It also includes practical assessments in carbon dioxide and flammable refrigerants (HC, HFO, R32).
Free online learning covering the theoretical knowledge of low global warming potential alternatives, including ammonia, is also available for self-study.
The online assessment support technicians are using options such as Zoom, Whatsapp, Gotomeeting and Google Meet to complete the multiple choice tests.
