From the 4th of July 2011 it became mandatory for any engineer receiving and handling refrigerant[s] to be specifically qualified according to the EU directive 842/2006. The directive applies to anyone installing, commissioning, maintaining, servicing, checking, or working with such gases and systems on a daily basis.
The engineer on any yacht will at some stage be expected to perform these tasks and therefore is potentially exposed to prosecution if not qualified. Working with the UK’s leading HVACR provider in refrigerant gas training, ‘Taiga’, bluewater is offering a short "Cat 1" course to give yacht engineers a City & Guilds certified qualification which complies with EU requirements & regulations.
