    Hi Johnny
    Welcome to the forum.
    Try the link below.
    http://www.acr-news.com/service-and-...the-f-gas-test -----

    Sorry That link does not appear to work.

    Copy and Google it and you should get the correct link.
    Or just type F gas questions and look for the corresponding link.

    It's got some good questions related to F gas.
    A lot of us used it historically as a bench mark!
    Good Luck Grizzly

    Re: Help with C&G F-Gas

    Old as a fridge system. Yes but still totally relevant.

    Still based of the same principals!
    Unless some of our more knowledgeable trainers can enlighten further.
    F gas is still F gas.
    Its a good start anyways!

    The courses haven't changed so the answers are much the same.

    Re: Help with C&G F-Gas

    Fair enough, as most courses teach the same thing I would look into the costs involved from the various teaching centres.

    As Grizzly has stated elsewhere, check how long the pass ticket lasts for. The lifetime tickets only last until someone changes the fgas regulations.

    .

    You will be tested on both practical and theoretical.

    Practically you need to be able to fit gauges, analyse the system
    Then remove all the refrigerant, find and repair a simulated leak
    (including a brazed joint). Then you pressure test the system to the
    correct standards, vac it out correctly and then recharge with the
    correct weight of refrigerant.
    Finally remove the gauges, all this without losing too much refrigerant
    and without contaminating it.

    Theoretical, you will need to know the science behind heat transfer and
    energy calculations, know how basic refrigeration systems work including
    the four main components used.

    Evaporators
    Compressors
    Condensers
    Metering devices

    You will need to be able to answer 40 questions (C&G online closed book) and
    (BESA is open book but you will have to get 100% correct).

    Theoretical includes system operation and scenario problems like if filters block
    what happens, if a condenser is cleaned what happens to the Work Done or if
    a cold room door is left open what will happen to the indirect emisions???

    Quite a few "if this does that, how will it effect those" type questions.

    Re: Help with C&G F-Gas

    Think I'm referring to your other thread but anyway, is it too late to think about doing the NVQ instead and looking for a trainee job. It'll work out cheaper.
    A lot of the electrical stuff I doubt you'll need unless you can sign off a power supply install that'll be about it and most firm will get an electrician to do that anyhow.
    When it comes to electrical fault finding for refrigeration panels I'm not sure there's even a course for that. More a case of figuring stuff out from wiring diagrams or the spaghetti of wiring the last bloke left and building up your own experience from there.
    Either way good luck!

    Re: Help with C&G F-Gas

    Ah, cool. Back when I started college, 2006, we could start on the technical certificate, once employed you can then get the portfolio of work completed and signed off and get the NVQ, that was the only difference between the two. Is that still the case?

    J&E Hall Training used to do an advanced Electrical Fault finding Course, which was geared for fridgies!
    (Not sure as to whether others still do so)
    I know Tech Train also did.
    But I am not sure they are still in existence?
    There used to be a CITB Course if I remember correctly.
