This course is suitable for refrigeration plant operators who need to gain a thorough knowledge of how an ammonia refrigeration plant operates, its components, legislative requirements and maintenance. It also covers safety in the event of an ammonia leak.

Ammonia is a toxic gas. Refrigeration plant operators and anyone working around the plant should be aware of the potential hazards and the appropriate courses of action to be taken in an emergency.

This three-day course includes both theoretical and practical components, with visits to a working industrial ammonia plant.

Achieving competency in this course will be by way of assessment after each section is completed over the three days. Certification is industry based and provided by AIRAH.
