What is refrigeration about?

The Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Industry has been developing since the late nineteenth century. It is a comparatively young Industry and is, more importantly, very much a growth Industry. Employment opportunities for Personnel entering the field of Refrigeration increase year by year to accommodate this growth. There are, broadly speaking, six fields of Refrigeration. These fields are Domestic, Commercial, Industrial, Marine and Refrigerated Transport. Automotive Air Conditioning, which is now fitted as standard to most of the production cars, is the latest addition to our Industry.

Domestic Refrigeration – This title applies to the appliances most of us have in our homes – domestic refrigerators and freezers. The past couple of years have also seen an increase in the number of small air conditioning units and mobile units installed in our homes. Maintenance of domestic appliances is normally through the initial manufacturer’s warranty. Long term service contracts and servicing / repair facilities are usually provided by local Engineers.

Commercial Refrigeration – The plant and equipment on site can vary widely. It is more often in the medium/large range. This field covers Offices, Banks and Building Societies, Supermarkets, Hospitals, Entertainment Centres, Hotels, Airports, Railways, Prisons etcetera. Some plant and equipment will be covered through a Service Contract Company, others through the employment of “On-site Personnel”.

Industrial Refrigeration – This field also covers the medium/large range of plant and equipment. It covers factories producing a broad spectrum of products e.g. meat, poultry, fish, pastries, sweets, chocolates, deserts, pickles, sauces, mineral water and pet-foods. Bakeries for all our bread, cakes and pies. Breweries for beers, lagers and a range of beverages.

Marine Refrigeration – Ocean going refrigerated cargo vessels, ships and barges carry a huge range of products from every corner of the globe. They supply our food industry, supermarkets and shops with a wide variety of produce. Pleasure craft of all types and sizes are fitted with air conditioners, heat pumps, refrigerators and freezers. All of these have unique features which reflect their use, application and geographical location on inland waterways throughout the world.

Refrigerated Transport – The transportation of chilled and wide-range of frozen food products has increased tremendously over the past decade. There is a growing demand for our produce to arrive on the shelves of our shops and supermarkets in “peak condition”. Fleet operators have grown in numbers in relation to this demand – along with the requirement for vehicles to perform at the height of efficiency, hence the growing numbers of Engineers required to ensure that the servicing, repair and maintenance of these “fleets” is carried out.

Automotive Air Conditioning – The installation of air conditioning units were fitted to an “elite” selection of cars five years ago. Today these units are fitted to the majority of production vehicles. To date, most garages seem reluctant to take on board the servicing and maintenance of the air conditioning systems and seem to prefer to have maintenance and repairs carried out by Contractors.
This, of course, is very good news for the thousands of Contractors throughout the United Kingdom.


Here are a sample of our course reviews.

Just completed the 15 Day refrigeration course and must say it was a refreshing change to be taught in a manner that would not only help you in the real world but also with plenty of “hands on” with the refrigeration rigs in the workshop.
Dave Stone who teaches the course has the ability to see how each individual is taking in the information and then tailor their learning progress.
3 weeks of great learning with a few laughs thrown in which made the course even more enjoyable.
There are shorter/cheaper courses out there that will give you the certificate, but no way will they make you competent like this one will.
I can say this as I’m a qualified electrician with 28 years’ experience of courses and know that some of the training providers just gear you up for the exam, which is ok until you get out in to reality!
Andrew Green 15-day refrigeration course – March 2018

I have completed a 15 days refrigeration and AC course at H.A.L. Training services, Doncaster.
This course is for everyone, who wish to get a very good education level .
The reason is only one- top quality in theory and practice ,demonstrated by instructor Dave in the classroom and in the workshop.
He teach everyone to work as team and to demonstrate their skills. The instructor gave us a lot samples from a real events and this was very helpful to understand how to think in our future work.
So I can to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
15 Day Refrigeration Course Lyudmil Varbanov

Just completed my 15 day air conditioning and refrigeration course here at HAL. Course was brilliant, the level of experience of the instructor was outstanding, sharing his knowledge and experience with us, delivering the course so we could all understand at a level we could relate to. Good hand outs to follow the course, perfect amount of practical sessions which helped understand the theory and tested our knowledge. Would highly recommend this training establishment for forces/ex forces and civilians.
