The Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC) has launched a free mobile phone application for technicians as part of its Green Scheme Accreditation program.

The ARC Green Scheme Accreditation mobile phone app is ideally suited to refrigeration and air conditioning technicians who work with natural or low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants in Australia.

All ARC Green Scheme Accredited technicians will gain free access to an online ‘tool box’ full of features to help them maintain and promote their accreditation, and provide valuable resources on the job, including:

Refrigeration and air conditioning wholesaler directory – On the job and need supplies fast? Find a supplier nearest to you. This directory contains over 950 refrigerant wholesalers Australia-wide.

Technical resources – Free access to information on: refrigerants, codes of practice/standards, training, safety and more.

Your Accreditation e-card - This is your proof of accreditation, and your way to identify your credentials to your customers.

To use the app, you will need to hold an ARC Green Scheme Accreditation. The app is available for Android or iPhone mobile phones.

The ARC Green Scheme Accreditation is a voluntary accreditation for technicians who work with natural and low GWP refrigerants including - C02 (R744), Ammonia, hydrocarbon and HFO 1234yf.

The Scheme provides a pathway for refrigeration and air conditioning technicians to upskill, and facilitates the use of new and emerging refrigerants and technologies into the industry.
