GLENVIEW, IL — The Refrigerating Engineers & Technicians Association (RETA) will unveil a new certification classification for entry-level operators on Oct. 6, 2001. Operators who pass the new certification examination will achieve the Certified Assistant Refrig-eration Operator credential.

According to RETA, the program was developed in response to industry requests for a way to measure whether operators moving into industrial refrigeration jobs have the knowledge necessary to function safely in an engine room under the supervision of a more experienced operator.

The organization says that its existing B-level certification program covered a wider base of knowledge and is being replaced by a new program. The new exam is 100 questions and is based on Industrial Refrigeration I and the safety content of Industrial Refrigeration IV. Both are published by RETA.
