EPTA’s dedicated CO2 training centre

As demand for CO2 refrigeration technology continues to grow, so too does the need for CO2 training. Addressing this demand is Epta, who every year organises courses to train refrigeration professionals from around the world on pumped, cascade and transcritical CO2 plants, as well as heat recovery, at the Epta CO2 training centre in England.

Epta’s state of the art CO2 training centre, located in Bradford, was set up in 2009 to ensure engineers throughout the industry had the necessary skills to support the widespread adoption of CO2 as a refrigerant. The centre was accepted as a City & Guilds approved training centre in 2010. Two City and Guilds approved assessors man the centre. Today more than 680 professionals have been trained successfully.

At EPTA, we believe that being a leading promoter of natural HVAC&R goes hand in hand with the mission to contribute to the training of technical staff, one of the main axes of development to ensure environmentally sustainable systems stable growth in the future,” said Francesco Mastrapasqua, Refrigeration Systems - Marketing Manager at Epta.
Fully equipped CO2 centre training courses
Courses at the Epta centre are taught by a number of tutors who can deliver the courses in a multitude of languages. The dedicated CO2 centre training centre offers the following courses:
  • Epta service course: theory and practical training on maintaining pumped systems, transcritical boosters systems and cascade systems.

  • City & Guilds 6187-31 CO2 Service & Maintenance: training on basic principles, CO2 systems, risk assessment, and practical work on transcritical, cascade and pumped systems.

We have a commitment to our customers for quality and simplicity: EPTA always offers Equipment & Training together, knowledge-management is the secret ingredient.”
