Training Supplement: City and Guilds for split AC installers
ELLIS Training Works has recently gained approval from City & Guilds (C&G) for a new course: City & Guilds 2081 - Split Air Conditioning System Installation & Commissioning.
The qualification is designed for those already working with split air conditioning systems or those who would like to get involved in this rapidly growing sector.
The course will enable candidates from the heating and ventilating, plumbing or electrical trades to cross-train while enhancing their skills and gaining necessary knowledge in the sector.
Candidates will learn to:
Plan an installation and carry out necessary minor building works
Fabricate, connect and fit pipework and insulation
Carry out necessary strength and leak pressure tests
Connect the electrical supply from isolator to units
Evacuate and dehydrate the installed pipework
Adjust refrigerant charge
Commission and test the installed system
Hand over system to customer
Candidates will also be sufficiently knowledgeable about the Building Regulation requirements and Competent Person Scheme
Ellis developed this qualification in response to the ever-growing demand for split air conditioning systems in offices, factory units and of course at home. It says that, in its experience, many contractors are considering diversifying into this area. This C&G will enable them to train staff to a standard where they can be confident that systems are installed and commissioned 'right first time'.
Split systems provide both cooling and heating, cost effectively and efficiently. For this reason, domestic heat pump systems are popular with conservatory owners.
Ellis has been delivering C&G qualifications in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning since the early 1990s and provides Safe Handling of Refrigerants training and assessment packages.
