Welcome to Practical Refrigeration Training Centre Limited


PRTC is an independent training company offering a wide range of refrigeration, air conditioning/heat pump, refrigerant handling, design and electrical courses.
Accreditation bodies include City and Guilds and Construction Skills. We run short courses and also full QCF/Diplomas.
The facility's major strength is its wide range of typical refrigeration and air conditioning systems to give practical hands-on training. 

With a 'practical' emphasis to all our courses our comprehensive range of refrigeration and air conditioning modules have recently been enhanced by the addition of a number of electrical courses including the popular '17th Edition', Inspection and Testing, and Portable Appliance Testing. Recognising the increasing importance of electrical knowledge within the refrigeration and air conditioning industry but also suitable for practising or trainee electricians (any pre-requirements are shown on the course synopses) full details can be found opposite and on our calendar.

In addition to the electrical courses we have also introduced the City and Guilds 6187-21 Hydrocarbon qualification to provide a recognised qualification for anyone involved in handling butane, propane and other hydrocarbons which are not covered by the 'F Gas' qualifications. Refrigerant handling, either 'F Gas', Hydrocarbon or Ammonia, can be taken as stand alone courses. Hydrocarbon or 'F Gas' qualifications can also be taken as part of other courses for less experienced engineers and full details can be found on the course listings on the left. 

Located just 10 minutes from the M65, accessibility to major road and rail networks and also several international airports means there is no need to miss out wherever you are based. For companies with groups of engineers requiring training and suitable facilities we can come to your premises, providing a flexible package to meet your needs.
