Autotech Training expands portfolio

Autotech Training has introduced IMI accredited courses in repairing and servicing vehicle air-conditioning systems, to help garages meet regulations surrounding fluorinated gases (F-Gas).

The one-day, IMI Level 3 Automotive Refrigerant Handling course details how to safely extract and restore F-Gas from an air conditioning unit, while the two-day, IMI Level 3, Automotive Air Conditioning Servicing and Maintenance course includes the refrigerant handling element, while also equipping technicians with the skills to effectively service and repair air conditioning units.

Both courses are being delivered at Autotech Training’s Milton Keynes headquarters.

Mandla Ndhlovu, training delivery director for Autotech Training, said: “It is essential that vehicle technicians, when servicing an air conditioning unit, have the skill set to effectively manage F-Gas and comply with regulations. Also, having the additional qualification to service and repair units will provide garages with a further revenue opportunity.”
