WR Refrigeration has announced that its engineers have successfully completed F-Gas refrigerant safe handling training and assessment,
The certification programme covered more than 250 installation and field service engineers working throughout WR Refrigeration’s nationwide network.
Following completion, WR Refrigeration is proceeding to full company registration under the REFCOM scheme, well ahead of the government’s deadline for completion of 4 July 2011.
The company’s engineers are all certified under the City & Guilds’ Level Two award in F-Gas and ODS Regulations: Category 1 (2079-11).
Due to the scale of the programme, the company carried out training in-house at several regional centres, based at its branches in East Kilbride, Leeds, Birmingham, Cardiff and Southampton, which are registered City & Guilds training centres.
Patrick Mullins, business development and marketing director, said: “It has been a great team effort on the part of our engineers and training team, headed by Paul Arrowsmith. We are now positioned to be able to deliver for customers ahead of the statutory deadline and ahead of the majority of the market.”
He added: “Embarking on a training programme of this magnitude could potentially have impacted our ability to maintain service levels to customers. However, by taking the training to our engineers it has enabled us to limit any disruption to the business to a minimum – and achieve full compliance well ahead of the deadline and many our competitors.”
