FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS – Level 1 – eLearning – Fundamentals of Marine and Offshore Refrigeration
I don't have any experience with refrigeration or air conditioning systems. Will I pass the e Learning course?
- This is a very thorough distance learning program that will give you a good understanding of the principles of refrigeration and how to carry out a repair to industry standards. The eLearning course is designed for beginners to refrigeration and air conditioning. There are plenty of scenarios, videos and quizzes to test your knowledge, including study guides that you can print off and a glossary of terms. There is a small assessment to test your understanding at the end of the programme and a certificate of completion is awarding at the end of the programme.
How long do I get to do the course as I work on rotation?
- The best thing to do is tell us when you want to start and we can give you 14 days access. This is not set in stone and if you require a bit longer then we can extend your access.
How can I pay for the course?
- The course can be purchased online, or you can pay via invoice and electronic bank payment. Once the money is received then we can send you your log in details.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS – Level 2 – Marine and Offshore Refrigeration
Is this just an FGas course? How is it different?
- No, the course includes the City&Guilds2079 Qualification, so naturally we must cover all of this material to help you pass the exams, but our Marine & Offshore Refrigeration course is written specifically for the offshore industry.
How will the course help me?
- Firstly, the City&Guilds 2079 certificate is the mandatory qualification to allow you to legally work with refrigerants. The rest of the course discusses equipment like the provisions refrigeration system, living quarters air conditioning or electrical switch room cooling systems. Students are encouraged to bring in drawings from site so that we can discuss problems that they are currently facing.
