The HVACR industry is transitioning away from equipment that uses R-410A in favor of new equipment with Low GWP Refrigerants such as R-32 and R-454B. Our trainers will teach you to properly handle, store and transport Low GWP Refrigerants.  Test results are mailed to ESCO Institute and graded solely by ESCO.
