Course Objectives

This qualification is designed for experienced/qualified electricians wishing to install Split Air conditioners/ Heat Pump systems or split system hot water systems. It covers the installation, commissioning and de-commissioning of single head, split air conditioning and heat pump systems where the maximum plant capacity for each system does not exceed 18 kW cooling capacity. It does not cover the maintenance, repair, service including diagnostic/fault finding and electrical work or installation of heat pump plant and equipment or commercial refrigeration and air conditioning.

This qualification is offered as a skills ‘top up’ course, therefore specific prerequisites must be met prior to commencing.

Course Outline

Participants must complete 11 Units of Competency to attain UEE20111 Certificate II in Split Air-conditioning and Heat Pump Systems. The qualification consists of 10 Core units and 1 to 2 Electives. The number of units you will be required to complete, is dependent on the final outcome of your RPL/credit transfer application.

Due to the program’s prerequisite requirements, selection of the elective units will be based on your previous experience, thus allowing this unit to be completed via the RPL/credit transfer application. A list of potential elective units are outlined in the course content section. For example: if you have previously completed: UEE30811 Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician, this may give you credit for CPCCWHS1001 – Prepare to work safely in the construction industry and HLTAID001 – Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
