The apprenticeship course is said to have been introduced in response to environmental concerns and modern building standards. It will complement a number of other courses available at the College, including electro technical technology, heating and ventilation, and plumbing and heating.
Ian Billyard, principal of Leeds College of Building, says: “This course appeals to a wide range of budding apprentices who are keen to meet their employers’ needs for fully competent refrigeration or air conditioning engineers. This is a major growth area that is being driven by the environmental agenda and we’re delighted to be able to offer this course in Leeds.
“Anyone who is interested in this exciting new apprenticeship must be employed within the refrigeration and air conditioning sector and ideally have GCSE grades A-D in english, maths and science.”
