The Santa Maria Chapter of RETA is pleased to announce ammonia operator training at Hancock College.


This class is designed for individuals interested in working on or around ammonia refrigeration systems. It is as a study course to help individuals become knowledgeable and proficient in the safe, effective and efficient operation of industrial refrigeration systems.


The following areas are addressed:                                         

  • fundamental items and concepts used by the refrigeration plant operator,

  • the refrigeration cycle,

  • physical properties of refrigerants,

  • refrigerant performance tables, compressor types,

  • compressor operation and maintenance,

  • lubrication,

  • cooling units,

  • condensers,

  • high pressure receivers, and

  • purging non-condensable gases from the refrigeration system.


    This class will cover RETA Books I, II, IV and Basic Electric I & II. The RETA CARO and CIRO examinations draw from these course books for test content. Upon completion of the course, students will be better prepared to take these RETA tests. We have made arrangements with RETA so that these books can be purchased at a discount. We have pre-ordered 20 sets of these books which will be available at the first class and the total cost for all 5 books is $419.00 which is $100.00 off of the regular price
