Qualification Description

UEE20111 – Certificate II in Split Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Systems is designed for Electricians who need to install Split Air conditioners/ Heat Pump systems or split system hot water systems.

This qualification is part of the Electro technology Training Package. It covers the installation, commissioning and de-commissioning of single head, split air conditioning and heat pump systems to a prescribed routine where the maximum plant capacity for each system does not exceed 18 kWr. This includes wall-hung, floor and ceiling-suspended, cassette and ducted fan coil split systems and water heating heat pump systems.

The air-conditioning refrigeration mechanic may also be the appropriately licensed person with responsibility under the relevant licensing authority in the State or Territory. Air-conditioning refrigeration mechanics licensing varies across States and Territories and additional requirements to attainment of this qualification may be required.

Occupational titles may include:

  • Restricted heat pump & split systems installer

The qualification has core units of competency requirements that cover common skills for the Air-conditioning refrigeration industry.

The Air-conditioning refrigeration industry and the UEE11 training package guidelines strongly affirm that training and assessment leading to recognition of skills must be undertaken in a real or very closely simulated workplace environment and this qualification requires all units of competency to be delivered in this context. The training package guidelines also strongly support a delivery and assessment approach that recognizes the skills and knowledge of qualified and non-qualified tradespeople working in the electro-technology industry.

The delivery and assessment strategy for this qualification is designed to help students demonstrate their skills and knowledge.

Additional units of competency may be required to meet registration requirements in various States and Territories.

The delivery strategy applied in this Training and Assessment is based on some delivery and mainly assessment pathways.

All assessments are done by ARCTICK licensed installers who observe and assess installations and validate the requirements of the student’s portfolio assessment provided to the College of Climate Change, the third party provider of training and assessment services. This qualification is generally delivered over a 6-12 month period based on the cohort group as outlined in this Training and Assessment Strategy.
