I already have a qualification am I covered?

The only qualifications recognised after 4th July 2010 are those that meet the requirements of Regulation EC307/2008 and adopted bodies.


I don't have a recognised qualification but I have practical experience.

If you have worked in this sector but do not have the relevant qualification then the City & Guilds 7543 Refrigerant Handling qualification would be most suitable for you. This only takes a few hours and enables you to work legally within the MAC industry and purchase refrigerants.

Do I need to renew my qualification?

City & Guilds 7543-001 is a ‘lifetime qualification’. There are no subsequent re-test or top-up requirements and therefore represents a cost effective investment.

Are we able to purchase tools and consumables from you?

Yes, we can provide advice and an order facility on the day or if you would like equipment ready to take away after your course please visit for all your tools, consumables and set up kit prices.
