This course equips students with the knowledge and skills required for a career in refrigeration and air conditioning and its applications. When combined with enough on-the-job experience, the course can lead to you becoming a qualified refrigeration and air conditioning mechanic.

As a licensed refrigeration and air conditioning mechanic, you will assemble, install and repair industrial, commercial and domestic air conditioning and refrigeration systems.

This could range from installing ducted air-conditioning in a family home to maintaining large walk-in refrigeration units for businesses needing mass food storage.

This is a growing area of employment and job opportunities are expected to be high over the next five years.

The Certificate III in Plumbing provides comprehensive training for all plumbing and gasfitting apprentices, and covers the practical and theoretical aspects of the industry.

You will gain skills in areas such as welding, water supply, drainage, sanitary, gasfitting, roofing and mechanical services.

This course is delivered in Holmesglen's specially designed plumbing and mechanical services facilities, where an emphasis is placed on providing hands on learning.

You will be taught by professional teachers who have all completed formal apprenticeships and have extensive experience in the plumbing industry.

Featuring Victorian Building Authority Licence competencies.

These competencies are drawn from or based on the CPC40912 Certificate IV in Plumbing and Services and will provide you with training in the six licence areas of plumbing.

These include drainage, water supply and mechanical services as well as gas, roofing and sanitary.

This course is suitable for registered plumbers who want to qualify for their required licences in plumbing.

PVC is an approved pipe material for use in water supply, sewerage reticulation and the gas industry. As a result Holmesglen, in conjunction with the Water Authorities around Australia and the Plastic Pipe Manufacturing Industry, has developed the Plastek program.

The program will provide water authorities and other relevant bodies around Australia with trained pipe layers who not only understand the material but will provide quality installation.

As the water industry moves towards Quality Assurance in construction, pipe layers may need to undertake accredited training before authorities accept their tenders.

The one-day training workshop conducted by experienced instructors will include informative discussion and practical exercises aimed at maximum participation. Participants will be encouraged to put forward and demonstrate ideas and recommendations that may improve the product of the quality installation of PVC pipe.
