Get Skilled Training is a nationally registered training organisation (RTO) that provides specialist electrotechnology training programs and air conditioning courses for those working in the electrotechnology industry and other related safety support areas.
Established in 2012, Get Skilled Training has provided training across Australia for electricians and electrical apprentices, as well as those wishing to enter the electrotechnology industry in courses such as our air conditioning and refrigeration, which leads to a Refrigerant Handling Licence with the Australian Refrigeration Council.
As an RTO, we have the capability to provide our specialist electrotechnology training programs in a flexible way for our students through a combination of face-to-face, online and distance learning. Our key goal is to provide you with high quality and targeted support services to get you qualified and skilled in your chosen field. We offer the following courses:
Get Skilled Training currently offers the UEE20111 – Certificate II in Split Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Systems in various locations around Australia. This is an approved qualification to apply for a restricted split system air conditioning installation and decommissioning licence with the Australian Refrigeration Council.
If this licence is obtained, students will be licensed to undertake the installation, commissioning and de-commissioning of single head, split air conditioning and heat pumps systems where the maximum plant capacity for each system does not exceed 18 kWR. This includes wall hung, floor and ceiling suspended, cassette and ducted fan coil split systems and water heating heat pump systems.
Get Skilled Training has created this air conditioning course for electricians and electrical apprentices, as well as plumbers and gas-fitters via recognition of prior learning (RPL) for those wishing to learn new skills and formalise qualifications in this industry. Our 2 day practical split system course with an online theory component meets the requirements outlined by the industry skills council and the standards set out by the Australian Skills and Quality Authority (ASQA).
One of the benefits of our air conditioning courses is that students can complete the online theory in their own time and at their own pace, which means less time off the tools and a great way to get a thorough understanding of all key concepts and knowledge components for the course.
During our 2 day split system course, students will cover various refrigeration and air conditioning principles and learn new skills and knowledge which they can apply to the installation and decommissioning of split systems.
One of the 3 core refrigeration subjects included in the qualification is UEENEEJ102A – Preparing and connecting refrigerant tubing and fittings.
This unit of competency includes the basic connection of refrigeration and air conditioning piping and tubing and fittings. It also involves the safe use of hand, fixed and portable power tools for cutting, flaring, bending, swaging, silver brazing copper tube to copper tube, bundy tube and brass and steel fittings, measurement and reading drawings and diagrams.
Another key refrigeration subject is UEENEEJ172A – Recovering, pressure testing, evacuating, charge and leak testing refrigerants – split systems.
This competency standard unit covers the recovery of refrigerant, pressure and leak testing, evacuation and refrigerant charging in split air conditioning and heat pump systems. It encompasses working safely and to standards, following regulations such as the Refrigeration Handling Code of Practice 2007 – Part 2 and industry practices for handling refrigerants and completing the necessary documentation.
The last core component for this air conditioning training course is UEENEEJ105A – Positioning, assembling and starting up single head split air conditioning and water heating heat pump systems.
This unit covers the assembly, installation and starting up and de-commissioning of single head split air conditioning systems and split water heating heat pump systems up to a maximum of 18kWr refrigeration capacity. It encompasses working safely and to standards, following routine procedures to install equipment, connecting pipe work, pressure testing, evacuating, performing functional checks and completing installation / regulatory documentation
For plumbers, gas fitters and trade assistants wishing to complete course UEE20111, there may be other units of competency that are required to be undertaken after gaps in knowledge and skills have been identified through recognition of prior learning for our split system installation course.
The theory for these units can be undertaken online and the practical on-site or at one of Get Skilled Training’s workshops to ensure that all students learn our UEE20111 Certificate II course in air conditioning and split system with the required skills and knowledge to undertake various tasks in a workplace.
