Course Description

Our hybrid learning program accommodates your business demands, reducing the time needed to be off site. Self-paced, online modules are followed by one day of face-to face practical application and assessment at the Beijer Ref Academy, Bankstown NSW.

This course is suited to air conditioning and refrigeration mechanics looking to upskill in CO2 refrigeration systems to comply with current safety legislation.

The unit UEERA0006 – Apply safety awareness and legal requirements for carbon dioxide refrigerant involves the skills and knowledge required to apply safety awareness and legal requirements for carbon dioxide (CO2) refrigerant. It includes applying safety and legal requirements when handling, using, and storing CO2 refrigerants. The skills and knowledge in this unit will be applied by those managing, supervising, or working in or near a location that contains refrigeration equipment using CO2 refrigerant. These could include managers, supervisors, maintenance staff, cleaners, employees and refrigeration and air conditioning technicians.

The unit UEERA0066 – Repair and service carbon dioxide refrigeration systems involves the skills and knowledge required to repair and service carbon dioxide (CO2) refrigeration system. It includes servicing and repairing refrigeration equipment using CO2 as a refrigerant excluding self-contained trans-critical systems. It also includes applying safe working practices and refrigeration principles that apply to CO2; following service manuals; testing, locating and rectifying faults and defective components; and completing the necessary service documentation. The skills and knowledge in this unit will be applied by refrigeration and air conditioning technicians during the service and repair of refrigeration systems using CO2 refrigerant.

Low GWP and Flammables Training

As the HVACR industry continues to move forward and innovate, the refrigerants that were once so common placed are now being phased out. Replacing them are more energy efficient, environmentally friendly refrigerants, known as Low GWP and Moderately low refrigerants. Many of these new refrigerants are classified by ASHRAE as A2L, or slightly flammable. The industry is also seeing expanded use of some hydrocarbon (A3) refrigerants, such as propane and isobutane. HVACR technicians will require additional training for the safe handling and transportation of these refrigerants.

Training Components

VU22583 – Handle class A2/A2L Flammable Refrigerants
UEERA0007 Apply safety awareness and legal requirements for flammable refrigerants
UEERA0084 Service and repair self-contained flammable refrigerants air conditioning and refrigeration systems
UEERA0048 – Install and commission flammable refrigerant air conditioning and refrigeration systems

Training Outcomes

After successfully completing this course, you will be able to:

Apply safe work practices in handling and using low GWP refrigerant
Follow workplace procedures for hazard identification and risk control of low GWP refrigerant
Service, repair and report low GWP refrigeration systems
