Free Refrigerant Management for Future Engineers Course


ASHRAE has been chosen to distribute a university level course developed by UN Environment on Refrigerant Management for engineering students.

There is no cost to access the course and use the course materials.  Instructors are provided with lecture notes, activity sheets, and course presentations.

Over the last two decades UN Environment has been involved in training programs offered to field engineers and service technicians on refrigeration good practices including emissions reduction with a focus on hands-on practices.

This new course is first of its kind by UN Environment to offer comprehensive scientific information at the academic level. Future engineers will be offered the skills required to manage refrigerants soundly, as well as, technical and policy aspects associated with the refrigeration and air-conditioning industry.

UN Environment is especially interested in encouraging instruction of the course in developing countries.
