Refrigeration Service Engineers Society Adds ESCO’s Low GWP Refrigerant Safety Training to Online Store

The Refrigeration Service Engineers Society has added ESCO Institute’s Low GWP Refrigerant Safety: Flammable and Mildly Flammable Refrigerants Training and Certification Program to its online store for members and non-members.

With numerous changes to building codes and industry standards to accommodate the safe use of low-GWP refrigerants, those working in the HVAC/R industry need a reliable source of information and training to keep pace with innovation.

The Low GWP Refrigerant program manual covers:

  • Refrigerant safety
  • Introduction to low GWP refrigerants
  • Refrigerant properties and characteristics
  • Refrigeration cycle
  • Working with refrigerant blends
  • Proper installation and service guidelines
  • Flammable refrigerant considerations
  • Explanation of the associated codes and standards for A2L refrigerants

Instructor resource materials include a 204-slide PowerPoint presentation that correlates directly with the manual. Each slide contains speaker notes to aid the instructor through the presentation and provide additional talking points.

A 50-question, closed-book certification exam is available to validate that a person has retained the information presented in the program. For more details, visit
