Certificate holders may carry out leak checks on any plant provided that it does not entail breaking into the refrigeration circuit containing fluorinated greenhouse gases


Each of the four C&G units are split into two assessments, an online multiple choice test and an observational assessment which covers the practical activities to meet the category requirements and also samples the underpinning knowledge of the unit;


Unit 2079-100 = 2079-101 + 2079-102

Unit 2079-200 = 2079-201 + 2079-202

Unit 2079-300 = 2079-301 + 2079-302

Unit 2079-400 = 2079-401 + 2079-402
