R-717 Operator 2

Ammonia Operator 2

Ammonia Operator 2 is the next step of advanced technical training for the progressing ammonia operator.  This class is not for a basic refrigeration roundsmen.  This class is developed for passionate operators that want to drive their industrial ammonia refrigeration not only safely, but efficiently as possible.  This class is available in person and online.  Each candidate for this class should have ammonia operator 1 credentials or the RETA CARO certification. We call this certification

R-717 Operator 2

Most successful students have at least two years industrial ammonia refrigeration experience.   Aptitudes needed for success are mathematics, observation, applied technology, locating information, and reading for information.  The class in a person is a 4 day session and online you have six months to complete.  Candidates whom score well on ARTS certification test provided at the end of the course tend to do well on the RETA CIRO, TPC, and NUILPE certifications too.  All ARTS certifications are active for a three window and carrier of those credentials must follow all company and regulator procedures. 

The R-717 Operator 2 course entails a copy of the latest edition industrial ammonia refrigeration book hand selected by ARTS. This book is for the student to keep and reference not only during the class but their entire career. Topics to be covered are as follows:
