2023 Sep-Oct RETA Breeze


RETA examinations are designed to protect the health and safety of operators, techni cians, other employees and the public in or near any industrial refrigeration facility. Saving lives and preventing injuries requires in-depth understanding of the risks of working with hazardous materials such as refrigerants, especially ammonia. These are all designed to help meet RETA’s mission “To enhance the professional development of industrial refrigeration operating and technical engineers.” RETA’s Education Committee creates books to support training for CARO, CIRO and CRST. The Certification Committee (Cert- Comm) surveys industrial refrigeration operators, technicians and supervisors throughout the U.S. to rate the importance of each content area. CertComm then develops exams that measure mastery of these content areas. RETA’s accreditation by the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) requires that the Education Com- mittee and CertComm must be totally independent of each other to maintain the fairness, integrity and security of each examination. CARO, CIRO and CRST are designed to mirror the tasks and skills required to manage industrial refrigeration systems and facilities safely and efficiently on the HOW TO PASS RETA EXAMS Dr. Ron Rodgers, RETA’s Psychometrician (testing expert) and ANSI Accreditation Manager
