UEE20111 Certificate II in Split Air Conditioning & Heat Pump Systems

Are you thinking about becoming licensed in installing air conditioners? This training course is offered to electricians, electrical apprentices, plumbers, gas-fitters as well as air conditioning trade assistants who wish to learn new skills and formalise their qualifications. Together with the Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational pathways, units of competency from this qualification can also be included to provide pre-vocational course for those learners interested in a career in the electrotechnology industry.

The practical component of this course is delivered in a simulated workplace environment, where students will learn all the required skills and working knowledge they will need to apply on the job. Upon completion of this training, participants will be qualified in the installation, commissioning and decommissioning of certain type of single head, split air-conditioning and heat pump systems up to 18kW.

The air conditioning course includes training that can be applied to wall hung, floor, and ceiling suspended, cassette and ducted fan coil systems and water heating heat pump systems. The course does not include competencies required for service, repair, maintenance, diagnostic/fault finding and electrical work, or the safe and proper installation of commercial refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump plant and equipment.

We will provide learning materials, assessment materials and marking guides in soft copy, issue qualification certificates and/or statements of attainment, provide quality assurance, and assessment validation and moderation of the qualification.
