SNDC Ecoclim: Automotive HVAC Training Specialists

For professionals working in the maintenance and repair of vehicle air conditioning systems, it is not always easy to understand new regulations on refrigerant handling and the new obligations they entail.
  • An SNDC ECOCLIM website to present things clearly, a training centre, and now, an assessment organisation authorised to issue certificates of professional competency. SNDC has just launched a website which clearly explains the progress of the certification process and the legal obligations that they involve.
  • New regulations: staff must hold a certificate of professional competency.

The regulations on the use and handling of refrigerants have changed. From now on, all companies that handle refrigerants must not only hold an authorisation certificate but their technicians must also hold a certificate of professional competency and be subject to a number of legal requirements and obligations.
As a training organisation, SNDC ECOCLIM has set up a programme that offers the opportunity for technicians to obtain their certificate in a single day. In the morning, these technicians will go through a training course and then participate in a preparation session to recap the skills and knowledge that they must have.

In the afternoon, there is a change of scenery and participants will sit an aptitude test. This test will assess their theoretical and practical knowledge and their ability to handle refrigerants. On successful completion of the test, they will receive their certificate.
