Qualifications leading to a career in the refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) industry. 2


refrigeration and air conditioning training with the mobile unitHave you considered a career in the climate control industry? This qualification is the cornerstone of the climate control industry. It provides competencies to select components, install, set up, test, fault find, repair and maintain refrigeration systems and equipment that apply to food storage and preservation, air conditioning and air distribution equipment in buildings and premises. It also includes regulatory requirements for purchasing and handling refrigerants and leads to the national ARCTick licence required by law for people working on refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) systems in Australia.

The RAC industry has many facets and is central to maintaining the living standards of the modern world. Surgery cannot be performed without RAC technicians and equipment, nor can food be kept fresh. Peoples’ welfare and comfort is directly affected by refrigeration and air conditioning,” said Kevin O’Shea, Chairperson of the ARC.

The Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC) has released a new video which highlights the refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) industry, promoting it as a career of first choice.

    Hi, I would be interested in Certificate III in air conditioning and refrigeration.
    Unfortunately I am not resident yet and I have been working in Australia under a 457 visa.
    I would need that certificate as quickly as possible to get the chance to change my visa and try to apply with the permanent resident.
    I was thinking that with an RPL it would be easier and quicker, but I only have experience in air conditioning (I already have Certificate II) and not in refrigeration, so I was wondering how long it takes the completion of each missing unit.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Sincerely.
