The Air Conditioning Contractors of America has announced an investment into ACCA’s flammable refrigerant training programs from global refrigerant manufacturer, Arkema Inc.
Arkema, an ACCA corporate member, is supporting ACCA’s effort and investing in ACCA’s online qTech® training program entitled “Technician Training on Flammable Refrigerants.”
ACCA is leading the industry effort to create a high-quality technician training program on flammable refrigerants. As the HVACR industry works to phase down refrigerants with high-global warming potential, ACCA members have been concerned that contractors and technicians need more time to be prepared to safely handle the next generation of refrigerants, which includes flammable products.
“ACCA thanks Arkema for their commitment to contractor and technician safety by investing in this important training program,” said Paul Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO. “When Arkema first joined ACCA’s corporate program we knew they supported ACCA’s quality installation message and programs. This additional investment by Arkema further demonstrates their serious commitment to the contracting industry and we look forward to working with them to ensure that the contracting industry is prepared to safely work with flammable refrigerant products.”
