Training & Guidance

Refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump (RACHP) training platform with massive open online courses (MOOC) on RACHP technology, policy &  its market

What is the right choice for cooling equipment in times of global warming? 

From mid 2020, we will be offering two self-paced online courses:

  • e-learning for owners of small food retail shops;
  • e-learning for RACHP technicians.

These courses will provide information on not only the opportunities, but also the threats associated with RACHP equipment. The topics of legal provisions, alternative cooling systems and the energy saving potential of energy efficient technology will also be explored. 


The courses are an introduction to the topic of climate change and the role of the food retail sector. An overview of the political framework, climate-friendly technical solutions already available on the market and approaches towards sustainable stores will be provided.

MOOC for store owners

Do you want to make sure you are up-to-date with current legal requirements that are relevant to you as a shop owner? Are you in the process of renewing your store equipment such as cooling appliances for food preservation, shop air conditioning or heat pumps? Are you preparing your own sustainability strategy or do you want to make sure RACHP equipment is adequately covered in your existing strategy?

MOOC for servicing technicians

Are you looking for best practice in terms of energy-efficiency and climate-friendly cooling? Do you want to create more awareness on urgent climate action and to encourage your customers to reduce their energy consumption and use natural refrigerants for climate-friendly cooling?
