Welcome to Cambridge Refrigeration Technology


Custom Courses


Our courses are made up from the following modules. To design your own custom course use approximately 6 modules to form a one-day course. 

Following considerable interest in ATP matters, CRT (operators of the Refrigerated Vehicle Test Centre at Cambridge, and ATP certification agents of the Department of Environment, Transport and the Regions) are holding a meeting to investigate the training needs of the refrigerated road transport industry.
