Ammonia - CPD to take you beyond 2078

Introducing the new C & G 6187-31 Ammonia level 3 CPD qualification, taking either the Installation and Commissioning route or the Service and Maintenance route. Going well beyond basic refrigerant handling these are in depth courses designed to develop your knowledge and skills when working with this increasingly popular but still challenging refrigerant.

Ideal for companies with groups of engineers requiring training, the City & Guilds 6187-31 Ammonia level 3 Certificate can follow two routes:

Ammonia level 3 Certificate in Refrigeration Systems Service and Maintenance

Unit 320 Understand Ammonia Refrigeration Systems Service and Maintenance Techniques - 10 credits - Assessed by means of a written assignment
Unit 324 Service and Maintain Refrigeration Systems - 3 credits - Assessed by means of a portfolio

Learning Structure
This course is only suitable for experienced engineers who have regular access to ammonia plant.
2 - 3 weeks actual 'contact' time during which a range of tuition will be given including powerpoint presentations, practical work, assignments and the development of a portfolio. Access to ammonia plant will be required for part of this time.
Self study time - an agreed time period between training sessions to allow evidence to be gathered and study to be completed.

Topics
The course will include the following topics:

The working principles and layouts of ammonia refrigeration systems, equipment and components
The operating principles and characteristics of the controls used
The design principles which apply for the arrangement of ammonia refrigeration systems
Legislative and organisational procedures for the servicing and maintenance of ammonia refrigeration systems
Planning, preparing and carrying out servicing and maintenance of ammonia refrigeration systems
Identifying and rectifying faults on ammonia refrigeration systems
Understand procedures for the completion of pre-commissioning, commissioning, and decommissioning of ammonia refrigeration systems
Be able to hand over ammonia refrigeration systems


Ammonia level 3 Certificate in Refrigeration Systems Installation and Commissioning:

Unit 318 Understand Ammonia Refrigeration Systems Installation and Commissioning Techniques - 11 credits - Assessed by means of a written assignment
Unit 322 Install and Commission Ammonia Refrigeration Systems - 3 credits - Assessed by means of a portfolio

Learning Structure
This course is only suitable for experienced engineers who have regular access to ammonia plant.

Understanding the procedures for installing ammonia refrigeration systems, equipment and components
Understand procedures for the completion of pre-commissioning, commissioning, and decommissioning of ammonia refrigeration systems

Delegates must already hold their City & Guilds 2078-02 Ammonia Refrigerant Handling qualification although this can sometimes be taken during the course.

This course is always held on site and as well as access to an ammonia plant a classroom or equivalent will be needed for the presentations and paperwork.
