Ozone Depletion Prevention Certification

Canada's Ozone Layer Protection Awareness Training Program is based on Environment Canada's "Code of Practice for Elimination of Fluorocarbon Emissions in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Systems". This course will deal with environmentally-correct equipment design, proper handling of refrigerants, and will prepare participants for complying with provincial regulations covering refrigeration and air conditioning systems.
Specific topics covered are: Science of ozone depletion, isolation valving, recommended components, leak detection methods, system charging procedures, special maintenance provisions, and refrigerant recovery, reuse, recycle and reclamation equipment. Each attendee will receive the Participant Manual to refer to in class and take home. Participants who achieve a mark of 75% or better on the exam will receive an Ozone Depletion Prevention (ODP) card. This card must be renewed every five years for those who purchase or handle refrigerants across Canada.
Note: this course is strictly theory and does not incorporate hands-on training. Anyone in residential, commercial, industrial, domestic, automotive and mobile cooling applications would benefit from taking this course.
This course is offered via distance education where the students and instructor in Thunder Bay are joined by students from across Northern Ontario at a Contact North site. Manual and exam included in the course fee. Thunder Bay students attend class at Contact North, 104-1139 Alloy Drive Thunder Bay.
