F-Gas Certification - City & Guilds 2079

Star Learning Solutions and East Kilbride Group Training Association (EKGTA) have partnered to deliver City & Guilds 2079 F-Gas Regulations assessment and certification, known as F-Gas Certification. This collaboration harnesses the experience and reputation of the two organisations, who boast a combined experience of 80 years in their respective specialist fields of expertise.

The vast knowledge, experience and resources of the Star Refrigeration network is complemented by the expertise of EKGTA in their capacity as an accredited provider of engineering training to a wide range of national standards and, in particular, City & Guilds.

This novel solution meets the requirements of the City & Guilds Level 2 award in F-Gas and ODS Regulations (2079) and can help enable contractors and engineers to fulfil the requirements of F-Gas certification. Formal assessment to City & Guilds standards can be carried out at any one of Star's nine branches around the UK:

Aberdeen - Bristol - Derby - Glasgow - Leeds
- Manchester - Newcastle - Oxford

Each branch is fully equipped with first class resources, including qualified assessors, fully approved assessment rigs and GOLA (Global On-Line Assessment) test facilities. These assessment centres offer a cost effective local solution compared to traditional alternatives.

According to Graham Stuart, MD - Operations of Star Refrigeration: "This initiative addresses two of the largest cost implications arising from the training costs associated with this statutory requirement - a major reduction in 'off the job' engineer time while undertaking training and a local solution to the employer for engineer training and assessment."

Good preparation is important. For many engineers, despite a wealth of field experience and previous formal study, the process of certification will require thorough advance preparation, especially in refreshing and updating theoretical knowledge of processes and regulations.

A flexible range of packages are available to suit individual requirements and engineer experience.
