Refrigeration Training in the Refrigeration Industry

Refrigeration Training

The refrigeration segment of the HVACR industry focuses on  cooling things vs. air conditioning that focuses on cooling people.  See this refrigeration job description.

Equipment common to the refrigeration industry:

  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers
  • Walk-in refrigerators and freezers
  • Ice making machines
  • Under counter refrigerators
  • Refrigerator drawers
  • Refrigerated display cases
  • Ice cream machines
  • Frozen food blast freezers
  • Industrial refrigeration machines used in
    manufacturing.

The basic theory used in air conditioning or refrigeration is the same or similar.  Most technicians specialize in one industry or the other.  There are always a few companies serving both the air conditioning business and the refrigeration business but most companies specialize in one or the other.

If you are interested in working in the refrigeration industry your course of study in the basics will be the same as air conditioning.  You will also need to interview some refrigeration companies, determine who you would like to work for and get training in the areas important to that company.

Federal law will require you to obtain an EPA 608 Certification so you can purchase and use refrigerants.  Get started on this part of your Refrigeration Training now by downloading our EPA Study Guide with
