Logic4training now offers two LCL Awards courses in F-Gas Refrigerant Handling at its Basildon centre in Essex.

Logic4training offers the LCL Awards Level 3 RQF in F-Gas and ODS (Fluorinated Gases and Ozone Depleting Substances) Regulations, the minimum qualification for those working with F-Gas and ODS. The courses are held over five or three days depending on the experience of the candidate.

The five-day course is aimed at both experienced and non-experienced candidates and covers the four categories including leak checking, refrigerant recovery, service, maintenance and installation. This course covers both practical and theory training.

The three-day course is for operatives with little or no experience, This is an excellent industry refresher course and is useful as preparatory training to improve, enhance and update the skills of engineering personnel before they undertake the Level 3 RQF F-Gas training course..

For both the five and three-day courses, the exam fee is included and each candidate will receive the training manual.

By 4 July 2011, it is a legal requirement for those working with fluorinated gases to obtain a qualification listed within the legal regulations and for businesses to be certificated through the bodies appointed by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

Businesses carrying out installations, maintenance or servicing of stationary refrigeration, air conditioning or heat pump equipment (SRAC work) containing or designed to contain F-Gas refrigerants must obtain either an interim company certificate or a stationary equipment qualification company certificate (full certificate).

Those carrying out SRAC work after 4 July 2009 without one or other of these certificates is committing an offence under The Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases Regulations 2009. The LCL Awards qualification is an evergreen qualification, unlike other qualifications, and does not require renewal every three years.
