Split System AC Course (2 Day - SkillBuild)

The Certificate II in Engineering offered by Skillbuild Training has been designed for electrical plumbing, mechanical and engineering tradespeople and 4th year and above apprentices in those trades who want to obtain a Restricted Split System Air Conditioning Installation and Decommissioning (Splits) Licence.

The course on offer meets the requirements of the regulating body, the Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC), for the issuance of a restricted Refrigerant Handling Licence. On the 1st of July 2005, the Australian Government implemented a licensing scheme to support regulations under the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Act 1989, designed to reduce emissions of environmentally harmful refrigerant gases. Anyone wanting to install, service or repair an air conditioner, or any other piece of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment must be a licensed technician under the regulations.
