New Release – Refrigeration Plant Operator Edition 4

We are excited to announce the release of Refrigeration Plant Operator Edition 4!

The content of Refrigeration Plant Operator (RPO) Edition 4 follows the syllabus structure to prepare learners to challenge the SOPEEC Interprovincial Refrigeration Operator Certificate of Competency. This syllabus is shared with the Ontario Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) Refrigeration Operator Class B Operating Engineer Certification.

Edition 4 comprises the following four books, sold individually:

  • Book 1: Refrigeration Plant Basics  (192 pages)
  • Book 2: Applied Concepts of Refrigeration (322 pages)
  • Book 3: Refrigeration Plant Support Systems (388 pages)
  • Book 4: Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (222 pages)

No new chapters have been added to the new edition; however, the chapters from the previous edition have been re-arranged into individual books. The advantage of this model is that it highlights the key topics captured in each book. This model helps track the progression of content and helps the learner build a better understanding of the material. The chapters in these books include self-tests, where appropriate, that are designed to test your understanding. The end of each chapter contains a set of questions for you to work through. These books also provide mathematical examples with fully worked out solutions to help you understand the concepts.

Refrigeration Addendum

PanGlobal has added an important addendum on Refrigeration concepts to our eBook platform

This addendum contains new learning objectives and content in refrigeration safety based on the recommendations made by Technical Safety British Columbia (TSBC) in its investigation reports of the October 2017 ammonia leak. The report examines two ammonia leaks, one occurring at the Fernie Memorial Arena in Fernie, BC, which resulted in the deaths of three people, and the other in October 2018 at a pet food manufacturing plant in Langley, BC, which prompted an extensive evacuation of the area. As this information is critical to operator safety, IPECC, SOPEEC, and PanGlobal Training Systems are making it available to learners immediately at no additional cost. In addition, this material will also be published in the forthcoming editions of Power Engineering Fourth Class, Power Engineering Fifth Class, and Refrigeration Plant Operator.

The new content of this addendum emphasizes the testing of secondary refrigeration systems, safe operation of ammonia refrigeration systems, and maintenance of refrigeration equipment. Some content may be familiar from the courses mentioned above, and the TSBC investigations suggest that it is worth repeating if this content will contribute to keeping all Power Engineers and operators safe.
