Modular 10 Day Air-conditioning & Refrigeration Technology (Incorporating F-Gas (CITB J11) and Pipework & Brazing (CITB J05)  

Crownship’s industry experienced tutors provide an environment conducive to learning, supporting candidates throughout all the stages of the course.  

Comprehensive air-conditioning and refrigeration workbooks and study notes enhance the learning process.  

Benefits of the qualification:  

On completing the programme you will have a comprehensive knowledge of air-conditioning and refrigeration systems plus CITB (J11) F-Gas Regulations and CITB (J05) Pipework and Brazing nationally recognised industry qualifications, thus opening up opportunities for employment in the air-conditioning and refrigeration industry.  

The course also provides a sound base for additional air-conditioning and refrigeration qualifications:  

City & Guilds 6127 Technical Certificate (Home Study)
NVQ Level 2 in Air-conditioning and Refrigeration
NVQ Level 3 in Air-conditioning and Refrigeration    

This course is made up of 5 modules:   

Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Technology
Refrigeration principles. Latent and sensible heat.
Basic vapour compression refrigeration cycle.
Refrigerants, their properties, safe use and storage.
Locate and identify system components, explain their functions.
Identify abnormalities and prescribe corrective actions.
Periodic maintenance and the use of cleanliness as an aid to leak detection.
The importance of system monitoring.
Recording of instrument readings and work carried out.
Connect manifold gauges to system to aid diagnosis.
Recover refrigerant/pump system down to carry out repairs.
Replace faulty components as required.
Electrical isolation, testing controls, control replacement.
Manufacture of replacement of copper tubing as required.  

Practical fault finding exercises on working refrigeration and air-conditioning systems, such as:  

Blocked filter/dryers
Blocked expansion valves
Dirty condensers
Faulty LP and HP Switches
Adjusting LP and HP Switches
Pumping system down to rectify faults
Evacuating system using the Triple Evacuation Method  

F-Gas Regulations and Qualifications (CITB J11)                       
Safe Handling of Refrigerant Techniques
Pipework and Jointing Skills
Recovery of Refrigerants (restricted to small systems only)
Intrusive and Non-Intrusive Leak and Performance
Checking of Systems Leakage checks, recovery, install, service, and maintain - all Systems.  

Pipework and Brazing (CITB J05)                                              
This Scheme allows delegates to carry out Pipework and Brazing on a range of Industrial Refrigeration pipe sizes. The delegate will have to produce a Practical Test Piece (1" 1/8 to 1" 5/8) ,which will be Pressure Tested in accordance with the relevant European Standard and then subjected to a destructive test to ensure a leak free joint.  

Split Systems                                                              
Theory:  Covering site survey, regulations, basic heat load calculations, A/C equipment siting, installing pipe and cable runs, air movement and noise transmission.  

Practical:  Covering wall mountings, installations pipework, making connections, insulations: leak testing, vacuums and charging, commissioning of systems and hand over.  

Essential Electrics                                                                  
Safe Isolations Types of Instrumentation
 Electrical Regulations
Supply Systems
Earthing Arrangements
Control and Protection Equipment
Terminations and Installation Practices Electrical Safety checks
