The training course, which can be found at, is available as a downloadable 23-page manual or packaged as manual and interactive software with practice tests, study modules, and a certification test. The comprehensive manual covers many topics such as evacuation requirements, safe handling procedures, and frequently asked questions. The training/certification courses can be finished by technicians according to their schedule. According to the company, the training is offered free as a goodwill public service measure to help educate the industry on R-410A safety and practices.
