Training & Guidance

Refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumps (RACHP) school with massive open online courses (MOOC) on RACHP technology, policy & market

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

Two self-paced learning courses planned to be available in the second half of 2020:

  • one for owners of small food retail shops and
  • one for RACHP technicians

These courses will provide knowledge on the opportunities but also the threats from RACHP equipment for a store owner’s legislative compliance and energy savings potential, training on F-Gas alternatives in small shops for RACHP technicians.


The courses introduce the topic of climate change and the role of the food retail sector. An overview is provided on the related political framework, climate-friendly technical solutions already available on the market as well as approaches towards sustainable stores.

MOOC for store owners

Do you want to make sure you are up-to-date with current legal requirements that are relevant for 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?
