About this Course

This intensive course provides the essential refrigeration theory to give registrants an overview of modern industrial refrigeration systems. Registrants will have the opportunity to write the Provincial Refrigeration Operator’s Exam to become licensed. Provincial regulations require that arena refrigeration plants between 45 - 100 tonne be supervised. Successfully passing the Provincial exam and receiving the Refrigeration Operator’s license, satisfies the regulations.  

Registrants are strongly advised to prepare for the course by reviewing the course manual in advance. Also, registrants are strongly advised to become generally familiar with the operation of their refrigeration plant. The course covers topics outside the normal operation of arena facilities but is required to cover the Provincial syllabus for the exam.

Topics covered along with class participation include:

  • Thermodynamics

  • Operation and maintenance of refrigeration plants

  • Components of the refrigeration system

  • Equipment and controls

  • Refrigerants (brine and glycol)
