IIAR 7 certificate program open

It is anticipated that course participants will become familiar with the ANSI/IIAR 7-2019 American National Standard for Developing Operating Procedures for Closed-Circuit Ammonia Refrigeration Systems and be able to apply those requirements to a safely installed and operated refrigeration system.

This course is intended to serve as continuing education for industrial refrigeration professionals whose job responsibilities include documentation of procedures and safe operation of closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems. This audience would include plant managers, maintenance directors and supervisors, designers, engineering managers, facilities engineers, facility managers, service technicians, mechanical engineers, and refrigeration engineers, as well as employees who focus on regulatory requirements for ammonia refrigeration systems.

The IIAR 7 Certificate course includes five training sessions, each approximately 40 minutes long, delivered as a PowerPoint presentation with an accompanying lecture. At the end of each module, learners must successfully complete a short quiz to check their comprehension of the material. To receive a certificate and continuing education credit, participants will be required to pass all quizzes as well as a final course examination, which is included in the course registration fee.

We recommend these minimum requirements for individuals interested in participating in this program:

  • General knowledge of the physical properties of ammonia
  • Familiarity with design, operation, and maintenance of closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems
  • Working knowledge regarding equipment that may be employed in operational closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems.

After completing the IIAR 7 Certificate Course, learners will be able to:

  • List the regulatory requirements that drive development of operating procedures
  • List the purposes served by operating procedures
  • Describe the characteristics and contents of well-designed operating procedures
  • Identify activities that must be documented by operating procedures

The IIAR Academy of Natural Refrigerants is a long-term education program created to address the need for competent professionals in natural refrigeration system design, safety, and maintenance. The objective of the academy is to address the technical training needs of end users, design build contractors, equipment manufacturers, operators, safety/PSM specialists, and consulting engineering sectors of the IIAR membership. As industry codes and regulations change and evolve, the need for competent professionals in our industry will continue to grow.

IIAR Certificate Courses are based on ASTM standards and allow industrial refrigeration professionals to show that they have received documented and standardised instruction regarding the requirements for safe design and operation of ammonia-based refrigeration systems.
