SCE-EU cooperation in refrigeration, air conditioning discussed

Chief Executive of the Supreme Council for the Environment (SCE), Dr. Mohammed Mubarak bin Dinah, today received Vice-President of Air conditioning Refrigeration European Association (AREA), Secretary-General of Italian Association of Refrigeration Technician, Marco Buoni, and discussed activating the national certificate programme for rehabilitating workers in the refrigeration and air conditioning sectors in accordance with the European certificate (F-Gas Regulation).

Bahrain’s strategic plan, 2015-2020, for phasing out ozone-depleting substances, implemented by the SCE, requires rehabilitating personnel operating in air conditioning sectors according to the requirements of the Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the ozone layer.

Bin Dina said the SCE seeks benefiting from Tamkeen’s support for the national programmes for the development of Bahraini aptitudes, chiefly industrial schools graduates.

The SCE had earlier announced that the national certificate programme will be implemented in collaboration with various government and private institutions, including a cooperation with Shaikh Khalifa Institute of Technology on providing training and assessments for school graduates of departments of refrigeration and air conditioning maintenance.
