Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Mechanics commission and service refrigeration and air conditioning units for both domestic and commercial industries. As a refrigeration and air-conditioning mechanic, you’ll find yourself learning both elements of plumbing and electrotechnology.
An apprenticeship in refrigeration and air conditioning is completed over four years and you are required to complete a Certificate III Refrigeration and Air Conditioning nationally recognised qualification. Once you become trade qualified in this industry you may consider further study to become dual qualified as an Electrician. This is possible as some of the TAFE studies overlap with the Electro-Technology Electrician qualification.
