All Mobile Air Conditioning (MAC) technicians working with cars and car derived vans, must have achieved as a minimum requirement, a refrigerant handling qualification which fulfils the European Union F-gas Regulation (EC842/2006 and Annex to Regulation EC307/2008).
The Air Conditioning route is intended for technicians whose job role involves the maintenance and repair or accident repair of light vehicles and will have contact with the vehicle Air Conditioning system during their work activities. This qualification is necessary if your job entails handling or purchasing air-con gas canisters.
Candidates must demonstrate the learning outcomes by following and achieving two assessment components (practical & Online/paper test) which are set by IMI/ABC Awards.
