    Re: CITB to stop doing F-gas qualifications.

    This bit is a little worrying Rob

    DEFRA has sought to reassure employers whose staff are legally required to carry F-gas certification that new routes to professional certification will be made available by the passing of revised F-gas handling legislation next year.

    No doubt I'll have to dig deep into my pocket again :-(

    Re: CITB to stop doing F-gas qualifications.

    So does this mean 2079 qualification will need updating?

    Re: CITB to stop doing F-gas qualifications.

    Why should 2079 need updating.
    Just because the gravy train has dried up for CITB.
    Most with sense will have done the City and Guilds version.
    Which as yet is "For Life" or at least until there is deemed the need to update.

    My company has spent a small fortune complying as and when.
    But that does not mean that coffers are going to supplement the Training Industry!
    Being Green comes at a cost and it seems some do not want to Pay!

    This is all going to get quite interesting, especially when a major training provider like CITB. Have decided that there is not enough money in it!
    May I suggest the Environmental agencies etc. Start fining those that don't already comply.
    That could be recycled towards some of the training costs.

    Has Brexit anything to do with the funding?
    Call me cynical!

    We all know my views on wholesalers complying wish the 2079 came with a photo id!

    As far as I am aware the C&G is only for life until the 2079 is revised. I think the licensing and periodic re-licensing is a good thing as it keeps our knowledge of regulation etc up to date. The cost of this should be zero at the point of consumption and should be borne by a tax on the refrigerant.

    Register yourself with ACRIB

    http://www.acrib.org.uk/acribskillcard

    Send your certificates off, pay your money and you will
    go onto the register of refrigerant handlers. If you have
    other qualifications they will include those onto it to.

    Regards
    Rob

    Hello Everyone

    Excuses my apparent ignorance but why should we spend the time and money at ACR-Training on the 3-day course if our current CITB certifications are still valid?

    The CITB f gas, when it expires will qualify for the new BESA re-assessment option, which will operate very similar as the out going CITB one
