Sri Lanka is getting ready to celebrate the International Ozone Day marking the 30th anniversary of the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer on 16.09.2015 at CGTTI : “30 Years of Healing the Ozone Together.” In Addition the theme is supported by the slogan, “Ozone: All there is between you and UV.”

Develop Curriculum for Refrigeration & Air Conditioning of Technical and Vocational Training

Training of refrigeration technicians, in both the formal and informal sectors, is an essential component of the HPMP. UNEP in cooperation with the Ministry of Environment, under the previously implemented RMP (Refrigerant Management Plan) and NCAP (National Compliance Action Plan) had provided training for refrigeration technicians in the formal and informal sectors on good servicing and maintenance practices.

Trainings were aimed at reducing the levels of refrigerant emissions during preventive and unscheduled maintenance of equipment. In order to sustain this training beyond the Montreal Protocol and to further improve training offered to technicians in the formal sector, UNEP in cooperation with the State Ministry of Environment is working towards enhancing training offered to RAC at vocational training institutions in Sri Lanka.

To achieve this objective UNEP, has recognized the need for the revision of the existing refrigeration curricula for technical and vocational training. NOU and the Technical and Vocational Education Training institution jointly adjust and modify the existing curriculum in keeping with occupational standards to meet the international conditions. Final draft of new Curriculum should be submitted to UNEP for review before 30th September 2015. And will be Translated into Sinhala and Tamil Languages.
