Unlike other states in Australia, there are unique restrictions in place for those wishing to install or decommission split system air conditioners in NSW.
While you can complete a UEE20111 Certificate II in Split Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Systems, this alone will not be enough for those wishing to install air conditioning systems anywhere in NSW. To do so, you require additional qualifications to satisfy NSW Fair Trading requirements to obtain additional licensing. The only exception to this rule is if you can work under the constant supervision of a current Fair Trading licence holder.
At Get Skilled Training, we still find many electricians in Sydney and across NSW still complete their Certificate II in Split Air Conditioning so they can work in other states, where only the ARC Licence is required and not other licensing from that state’s Office of Fair Trading.
We also see many people get started within the industry and go onto further studies after completing their Certificate II, moving towards an apprenticeship in the Certificate III qualifications, giving themselves advanced standing or better job prospects with air conditioning and refrigeration companies.
If you live in NSW and would like more information on how this course could still benefit you, please don’t hesitate to call us directly on 1300 856 832.
