Alternatives training days across Europe

Alternatives training days across Europe

The low GWP refrigerants training project, REAL Alternatives 4 LIFE, is to organise a programme of study and train the trainer events.

Co-financed by the EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action, the REAL Alternatives 4 LIFE project will organise four study day events in several countries in Europe aimed at standardising and ensuring a high level of training on low GWP alternative refrigerants.

These will take place during the second half of 2018 and into 2019 in Germany, Italy, Poland and Belgium. The topics will focus on flammables and carbon dioxide, with the number of participants varying from 8-12 per event. Participants in this programme will include training providers from Croatia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Spain and Turkey.

At the study days, knowledge and expertise will be shared on how low GWP alternative refrigerants training courses are carried out. This will aim to prepare the trainers for the new training courses that will be offered in their national markets based on the REAL Alternatives materials.

The events will be organised as a half-day of theoretical training and a half-day of practical demonstration on test equipment. The day will be conclude with a written assessment to validate the training and for which participants will receive a certificate.
