Amerit Launches Reefer Tech Academy

The program focuses on environmental compliance, refrigerants management, leak detection and other maintenance.

Amerit Fleet Solutions, a fleet maintenance solutions provider, has introduced the “Reefer Tech Academy,” a curriculum developed to train the next generation of skilled technicians. The program focuses on environmental compliance, refrigerants management, leak detection and other repairs and maintenance of refrigerated trailer technology. This initiative emphasizes Amerit’s commitment to advancing employees’ expertise and helping technicians foster career growth, the company said.

As the demand for reefer technicians continues to surge, the program is designed to equip technicians with the necessary knowledge and hands-on experience to excel in the complex world of refrigeration systems. Similar to Amerit’s Trailer Tech program, this curriculum blends theoretical concepts with practical application, ensuring graduates are well-prepared to tackle real-world challenges. By the end of this program, participants will understand the components of a refrigeration unit as well as the environmental roles and responsibilities attributed to the position.

“I am very pleased that Amerit continues to offer expanded learning and development opportunities,” says Natalie Kathain, Amerit Fleet Solutions’ chief HR officer. “This program embodies our commitment to shaping the future of our industry and fostering a skilled workforce.”

Amerit Fleet Solutions said the program’s highlights include:

  • A comprehensive curriculum: The Reefer Tech Academy offers training on EPA regulations 608 and 609, enabling technicians to navigate these requirements with confidence. This course is for technicians who are pursuing either an EPA 608 or 609 certification or who otherwise plan to work as a technician on refrigeration units.
  • Hands-on training: The Reefer Tech Academy is designed for technicians with at least one year’s experience. This academy will help techs become well-versed in environmental compliance, including handling refrigerants, leak detection and proper disposal procedures.
  • Expert instructors: The program is led by Amerit professionals with extensive experience in refrigeration technology.
