HVACR technicians from across Australia have achieved accredited CO2 training via the newly opened, Sydney Beijer Ref Academy.
Beijer Ref and Superior Training Centre Pty Ltd (RTO ID Number 41122) have collaborated to offer the only nationally accredited CO2 course currently being run in Australia on state-of-the-art equipment in a custom-built facility.
Superior Training Centre head trainer, Antonis Siamas says, “This is an important step forward in the upskilling of technicians in CO2 systems technology. The training combines theory and practical components and technicians are working on the latest equipment within the Beijer Ref Academy.”
Upon successful completion of the 2-day course attendees are awarded a statement of attainment for UEENEEJ184A – Apply safety awareness and legal requirements for carbon dioxide refrigerant and UEENEEJ185A – Repair and service carbon dioxide refrigeration systems. The accreditation is authorised by Superior Training Centre and recorded against the technician’s unique student identifier.
Inderpal Saund, business development manager APAC & sales manager SCM REF Australia says this is as excellent opportunity for businesses and technicians to future-proof themselves as the use of CO2 continues to rise. “All business owners and technicians ready to up-skill themselves and grow their opportunities in the service and maintenance of CO2 systems are encouraged to register their attendance.”
Redtech Commercial Refrigeration service manager and recent course attendee Tom Harkness said, “I really enjoyed the course and learnt a lot. It was so good to do the practical components and see all the different racks at the Beijer Ref facilities. This accreditation will mean a lot to me and our business moving forward.”
The Sydney based Beijer Ref Academy is equipped with leading CO2 technology that allows technicians and installers the opportunity to learn how to operate CO2 refrigeration systems in different configurations. The system can deliver live simulation performance in all applications and weather conditions.
All components of the course are conducted within the Beijer Ref facilities.
