Universal R-410A Certification

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - With less than six months until the beginning of the year, Ferguson is starting to see the demand for R-410A training and certification grow rapidly. Many in the HVACR industry are well aware of the concerns and safety issues of working with R-410A and other hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants and are requiring installation and service professionals who purchase their R-410A systems to be R-410A certified.

To accomplish this goal, Ferguson has selected the AC&R Safety Coalition Universal R-410A Safety Training Program. Successful test takers will receive a wall certificate, a wallet-sized certification card, and an embroidered shoulder patch issued by HVAC Excellence. “R-410A certification shows evidence of your professional ability to safely work with this new generation of refrigerants and air conditioners,” said the company.
