The adoption deadline for the new electrotechnology training offer UEE11, which consists of a variety of refrigeration and air conditioning qualifications, has been extended from Oct 5, 2022 right until January 31, 2023.
Within just the HVAC&R field, there is individual curiosity in the roll-out of the new Certificate III in Air Conditioning and Refrigeration qualification UEE32220. Importantly, it incorporates new substance on the risk-free dealing with of A2/A2L refrigerants device. With each other with the present hydrocarbon refrigerant unit, this varieties the flammable refrigerant device of competency.
In January 2022 the Electrotechnology Sector Reference Committee (IRC) used to the Australian Techniques Excellent Authority (ASQA) for the extension. The application was manufactured primarily based on disruption brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic across 2021.
One more worry was the disruption to college students from switching offers halfway as a result of a time period. The Oct changeover day would have necessary a significant range of learners to re-enrol in the new class. By delaying the changeover until finally January, the administrative burden on TAFEs and registered training organisations should really be substantially eased.
