During Covid, RLNZ refreshed their courses in order to be fit for purpose with current technology in A1 and A2/A2L refrigerants and be ready for the release of A3 refrigerants into New Zealand.
People filling containers with gases under pressure, including cylinders, aerosols, and non-refillable containers must be trained and hold an Approved Filler compliance certificate. An Approved Filler compliance certificate must be issued by a compliance certifier.
Renew your RLNZ license by learning current information for A1 and A2/A2L refrigerants and passing a practical assessment using current materials and fit for purpose technology.
Please register here:
A1 Approved Filler for non-flammable refrigerants, with A1 practical assessment
A2/A2L Approved Filler for flammable refrigerants, with A2 practical assessment
Approved filler compliance certificates need to be renewed at least every five (5) years.
• Continuing and ongoing improvements in technology and courses
• Consultation with WorkSafe and requirements for Approved Filler
• A1 Approved Filler for non-flammable refrigerants
• A2/A2L Approved Filler for flammable refrigerants
• Practical assessment of your skills
