Hydrocarbon refrigerants were approved for use by the US EPA through their SNAP program in early 2012, for specific refrigeration applications. Currently in the third edition, this course covers practices for the following refrigerant families:
  •      HC R-290 (propane)
  •      HC R-600a (isobutene)
  •      HC R-441A (a blend*)
  •      HC R-170 (ethane)
  •      HFC R-32 (difluoromethane)

The course is broken down into four parts: Standards and Regulations; Refrigerant Properties and Safety System Component Compatibility; Servicing Procedures and The Refrigeration Cycle Cylinder Storage and Transport.

A certificate is issued to each person who passes stating they took/passed the course.

Learn the facts about working safely with flammable refrigerants, including EPA Regulations; UL Standards; Refrigerant Safety; Service Procedures; and much more.

The full eLearning course includes a PDF of the Study Guide, a narrated online presentation highlighting key topics from the study guide, and the certificate test assessing your understanding of the material.
