Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this qualification in the UEE Electrotechnology Training Package

Qualification Description

This qualification covers competencies to determine heat loads and select equipment for basic commercial refrigeration or residential air conditioning applications. It includes regulatory requirements for purchasing and handling refrigerants.

Basic commercial refrigeration includes commercial cold rooms, freezer rooms and cabinets with a single compressor or condensing unit. This does not include large, complex commercial applications or industrial applications.

Competency development activities in this qualification are subject to regulations directly related to licencing. A relevant contract of training through an apprenticeship or relevant employment may be required to enable the application of the required knowledge and skills to on the job work activities and environments.

Refrigerant Handling Licence:

The achievement of the qualification meets the training components for the full national Refrigerant Handling Licence which is required to work on refrigeration and air conditioning equipment that carries the risk of a fluorocarbon refrigerant being emitted while decanting the refrigerant or manufacturing, installing, commissioning, servicing, maintaining or decommissioning refrigeration and air conditioning equipment.

Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Occupational Licence:

Additional and/or other conditions may apply in some jurisdictions subject to regulations related to refrigeration/air conditioning work. Practice in the workplace and during training is also subject to work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) regulations.

Electrical Occupation Licence:

The achievement of this qualification with the core restricted electrical units meet the electrical regulatory requirements for related restricted electrical work in most state/territories. This is required to work on electrical installations which are designed to operate at voltages greater than 50 volt (V) alternating current (a.c.) or 120 V direct current (d.c.).

Entry Requirements

There are no entry requirements for this qualification.

Packaging Rules

A total of 1360 weighting points  comprising:

1300 core weighting points  listed below; plus 

60 general elective weighting points  from the general elective units listed below.

Choose a total of 60 weighting points  elective units from the list below, of which between 0 and 20 weighting points  can be taken from Group A; and between 0 and 20 weighting points  must be taken from Group B; and 40 weighting points  must be taken from Group C.

Up to 20 weighting points of the general elective units Group A , may be selected, with appropriate contextualisation, from any relevant nationally endorsed Training Package or accredited course, provided selected units contribute to the vocational outcome of the qualification. Previously assigned weighting points are listed in the UEE Electrotechnology Training Package Companion Volume Implementation Guide (CVIG), if not listed weighting points will be 10 points, unless directed from the Electrotechnology Industry Reference Committee (IRC).

There are units of competency within this qualification that contain pre-requisites. Units of competency that have a pre-requisite requirement are identified by this symbol *. Refer directly to the units of competency to identify pre-requisite requirements to ensure all are complied with. A list of all pre-requisites is also provided in the UEE Pre-requisite Companion Volume.

Where imported units are selected, care must be taken to ensure all pre-requisite units specified are complied with.
