I am required to work newly designed airspace that does not have proper frequency coverage. I am unable to provide separation to aircraft that are below 8000 ft. This new airspace has many very dangerous flaws. I have not received proper training and have told management of my position yet they are forcing myself and other controllers to work airspace that is unsafe.
