NSW

To apply for a refrigerant handling licence and the Provisional Tradesperson Certificate, OTSR holders wishing to work in New South Wales (NSW) must contact:

  • the Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC),who issue the Trainee Licence (for handling of refrigerant in classroom and workplace), and
  • New South Wales Fair Trading who is the regulator responsible for issuing the Provisional Tradesperson Certificate.

IMPORTANT: Both licences are required to work in NSW as an Airconditioning and Refrigeration Mechanic (under supervision).

Holders of a Trainee Licence and a Provisional Tradesperson Certificate must:

  • enrol in and complete Australian context gap training, and
  • work under the supervision of a current holder of an Airconditioning and Refrigeration Licence or Certificate.

On successful completion of Australian context gap training and supervised employment, applicants are eligible to apply for a Certificate III in Air-conditioning and Refrigeration (UEE32211).

On receipt of the Certificate III in Air-conditioning and Refrigeration (UEE32211), an applicant may apply for a full Refrigerant Handling Licence – Qualified Persons (2 years) with ARC and an Airconditioning and Refrigeration Licence or Certificate with New South Wales Fair Trading.
