Requesting the Qualification environnementale : halocarbures

Since 2006, the Environmental Qualification: Halocarbons endorsement is automatically added to the competency certificate of eligible
refrigeration mechanics

However, a refrigeration mechanic whose competency certificate does not mention this qualification but who considers himself qualified after completing training on halocarbons may ask the Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ) to rectify the situation.

To do this, he must submit the following documents to CCQ’s
customer service.

  • A duly completed Application for Recognition of Vocational Qualifications form
  • A letter stating his wish to obtain the Environmental Qualification: Halocarbons
  • Two pieces of identification, including one with a photograph. The following are accepted: passport, driver’s licence (Canadian), health insurance card (Canadian), Canadian Social Insurance card, birth certificate, certificate of civil status or competency certificate issued by the CCQ. These documents may be submitted by fax or mail and copies are accepted.
  • A copy of the original proof of qualification

Following review of the application, if the refrigeration mechanic is in fact qualified, he will receive a duplicate of his competency certificate with the Environmental Qualification: Halocarbons endorsement. This endorsement will then be automatically indicated on his competency certificate the next time it is renewed.
