ACRIB welcomes specialist diplomas

ACRIB has welcomed new specialist diplomas in refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumps from City & Guilds

Paul Mills, chairman ACRIB Education & Training Committee, said: “At a recent ACRIB Education and Training Committee meeting, we were delighted to hear of CGLI’s latest initiative in releasing new Level 2 and Level 3 Diploma qualifications in refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump systems.”

“Designated CGLI 7189, this highly focussed qualification is specifically aimed at our sector and will be available from September 2012.”

“It includes practical assignments, externally set and marked theory exams, F Gas certification recognition and is expected to attract the funding.”

“The 7189 Diploma units cover refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump installation, commissioning, service and maintenance as well as safe working practices, environment, electrical and scientific principles in RACHP.”

“ACRIB will recognise the 7189 for the ACRIB Skillcard, which provides evidence of refrigerant handling qualifications, as it includes F Gas Certification.”

“Although it is normally the role of the City & Guilds London Institute, and its’ recognised training centres, to promote these vocational courses, with more choice this particular option merits immediate recognition as it combines refrigeration and air conditioning competences within a single qualification and therefore matches our sector competence requirements.”

“The ACRIB website (acrib.org.uk) has been updated with information about the range of different Diplomas and Certificates now available from City & Guilds.”

“Those employers and individuals reviewing potential courses to achieve an up to date RACHP qualification are strongly advised to investigate the value of the CGLI 7189 combined Diploma in Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Systems.”

Centres can register their interest in delivering the qualification with City & Guilds now so that they can begin enrolling students for September when registration opens.
