How It Works
Academy of Natural Refrigerants’ certificate courses are self-paced and are available entirely online, including the final exam.
Guideline purchasers will be sent an enrollment code with the purchase confirmation and instructions for obtaining the Ammonia Release tool.
The “Estimating Accidental Refrigerant Releases” certificate course includes five training sessions, each 15-30 minutes long, delivered as a PowerPoint presentation with lecture. At the end of each module, learners must successfully complete a short quiz to check your comprehension of the material. To receive a certificate and continuing education credit, participants will be required to pass all quizzes as well as a final course examination, which is included in the course registration fee.
We recommend these minimum requirements for individuals interested in participating in this program:
- General knowledge of the physical properties of ammonia
- Familiarity with design, operation, and maintenance of closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems
- Working knowledge regarding equipment that may be employed in operational closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems
- A copy of the Guideline and Release estimating tool
After completing the “Estimating Accidental Refrigerant Releases” Certificate Course, learners will be able to:
- Discuss the purpose, scope, and applicability of this guideline
- Identify the types of releases covered by the guideline
- Use the guideline and accompanying Ammonia Release Calculation Tool as part of a comprehensive incident investigation that complies with complies with regulatory requirements
Continuing Education Credits
After completing an IIAR Academy of Natural Refrigeration certificate course, successfully completing the accompanying quizzes, and passing the final course exam, you will earn the corresponding number of continuing education credits, which can be applied toward maintaining P.E. licensure. IIAR is accredited by the Registered Continuing Education Program for Engineers, Surveyors & A/E/C Professionals (RCEP) as an approved provider of continuing education
The “Estimating Accidental Refrigerant Releases” certificate course offers 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) for learners who successfully complete the course.
The IIAR Academy of Natural Refrigerants is a long-term education program created to address the need for competent professionals in natural refrigeration system design, safety, and maintenance. The objective of the academy is to address the technical training needs of end users, design build contractors, equipment manufacturers, operators, safety/PSM specialists, and consulting engineering sectors of the IIAR membership. As industry codes and regulations change and evolve the need for competent professionals in our industry will continue to grow.
IIAR Certificate Courses are based on ASTM standards and allow industrial refrigeration professionals to show that they have received documented and standardized instruction regarding the requirements for safe design and operation of ammonia-based refrigeration systems.
