ARC-logoAUSTRALIA: A number of training courses are being investigated by the Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC) after complaints from members.

According to Climate Control News, the ARC has  intervened to close down two courses being delivered in Victoria by an interstate training body for non-licensed handling and storage of refrigerant as well as training quality issues.

In a separate case, a Certificate III RAC course being delivered in Western Australia is said to be under investigation by the training regulator ASQA following a complaint by the ARC.

The ARC administers refrigerant handling licences and refrigerant trading authorisations on behalf of the Australian Government, to professionals in the refrigeration/air conditioning and auto industry.
