TEXA AIR CONDITIONING QUALIFICATIONS

TEXA Abilita Clima

The 5th May 2012 saw the introduction in Italy of Presidential Decree 43/2012 enacting European Regulation 842/2006 governing the recovery of certain greenhouse effect fluorinated gases.

This legislation requires garage and workshop personnel responsible for recovering greenhouse effect fluorinated gases from vehicle air conditioning systems to hold a qualification issued by a certified organisation on completion of a specific training course.

TEXA’s training organisation holds the necessary certification to deliver legally conforming courses at training centres throughout Italy, and to issue qualifications specific to Car, Truck, Agri, Bus and Marine environments.

SKILLED/INSTRUCTED PERSONNEL QUALIFICATION:
SAFETY IN HYBRID AND ELECTRIC VEHICLES

This course leads to qualification to perform work on electrical or hybrid vehicles involving electrical risks as defined by standard CEI EN 11-27, in conformity to legislation governing safety in the workplace (Legislative Decree 81/2008 in Italy). According to standard CEI 11-27, edition III, electrical work may only be carried out by a Skilled Person or an Instructed Person. These roles may only be assigned by an employer. Designated employees must be notified in writing and must sign the notice by way of acceptance of their role. Both roles are assigned on the basis of training certificates and experience in the field.

To qualify to perform electrical work, mechanics must follow a training path covering both theory and practice. By the end of the training the mechanic will have a knowledge of basic electrical safety legislation and first aid procedures as well as the ability to make a vehicle safe, maintain it, recover it from the roadside and replace its batteries.

GAS FUEL SYSTEM SPECIALIST

Gas fuels have become valid alternatives, and the number of ecologically sustainable vehicles registered is rising every year. Today, the servicing and repair of LPG and methane fuelled vehicles represents an important source of income and an opportunity that garages should certainly not underestimate.

Gas-specific engine design, phased sequential gas injection, use of the same turbocharger control unit for gas and petrol, and exhaust gas energy recovery via the compressor turbine are just some of the features of the latest LPG and methane fuel systems.

TEXAEDU’s “Gas Fuel System Specialist” training programme includes the new ”G12a” course for methane fuel systems and “G12b” course for LPG systems. Both courses provide valuable training on the functioning, servicing and repair of a large number of vehicles fitted with OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and AM (After Market) gas fuel systems.
