Refrigeration Courses for Electricians

Get Skilled Training offers a nationally accredited refrigeration courses for electricians, including UEE20111 – Certificate II in Split Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Systems for those wanting to obtain a Refrigerant Handling Licence (ARCtick Licence).

This allows you to install and decommission split systems air conditioners, and we run this refrigeration course in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Hobart, Darwin and other locations across Australia.

A Refrigerant Handling Licence must be held by any person who carries out work in relation to refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) equipment. Carrying out work in relation to RAC equipment means to do anything with a fluorocarbon refrigerant, or a component of RAC equipment, that carries the risk of refrigerant being emitted, including: decanting the refrigerant or manufacturing, installing, commissioning, servicing or maintaining RAC equipment or decommissioning RAC equipment.Handling fluorocarbon refrigerant without the appropriate licence is an offence. National regulations are in place which affect people who acquire, possess, dispose of or handle ozone depleting substances or synthetic greenhouse gases.
