Short Course in Split Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Systems

This course is only for individuals who currently hold an occupational licence as an Electrical Technician, or hold the recognition unit/credit transfer units. The course covers the additional units required to be able to install split air conditioner/heat pump systems or split system hot water systems.

This course covers units from the Electrotechnology Training Package. It covers the installation, commissioning and de-commissioning of single head, split air conditioning and heat pump systems to a prescribed routine where the maximum plan capacity for each system does not exceed 18 kWr.  This includes wall-hung, floor and ceiling-suspended, cassette and ducted fan coil split systems and water heating heat pump systems.

Learning Options

This course is delivered on campus.

Assessment Process

Assessments are designed to help you demonstrate your skills and knowledge. They allow us to confirm you can perform to the standard required in the workplace, to meet all of the requirements of the course.

After 5 days of campus based training you will be required to complete an on-site practical assessment.

Assessment will require an ARCTICK licensed installer to oversee your installation and validate the requirements of the third party portfolio assessment provided by TasTAFE. This will need to be successfully completed within two months of the campus based training for your results to be deemed competent to obtain your license.

Recognition of Prior Learning

It makes sense that you should be recognised for the things you already know how to do. TasTAFE can assess your skills and knowledge based on your previous education, work history or life experience. This may help you gain your qualification a whole lot faster.
