President of U-3ARC, Madi Sakandé, was delighted with their performance, emphasizing in passing that Ms. Sokhna Fall from Senegal, with 17/20 in the Alternative Refrigerants test, emerged Major of the Promotion. This rigorous training, which falls within the framework of the European Regulations on fluorinated gases and the Real Alternatives Program, awards Certificates which are valid throughout the European Union, he told us.

U-3ARC, which organized this training session in collaboration with the Centro Studi Galileo Institute and WRD, made no mistake and relied heavily on the Female Refrigeration Technician. For President U-3ARC, no one is better placed than the woman, who generally manages the home, particularly all the household appliances in the house which contribute to food preservation, among other things. In this sense, it plays an important role in the air conditioning sector and in protecting the environment by reducing CO2 emissions. By working to save energy, in energy efficiency, our wives, sisters and mothers contribute to it.
