Air conditioning is essential for maintaining a comfortable and healthy indoor environment, especially in hot and humid climates. It can also help to improve air quality by removing dust, pollen, and other allergens.

In addition to its role in comfort and health, air conditioning is also important for a variety of commercial and industrial applications. For example, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration is used to preserve food and other perishable goods, control the temperature and humidity in manufacturing processes, and create comfortable working conditions for employees.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
