to handle refrigerants? On the 1st of July 2005, the Australian Government implemented a licensing scheme to support regulations under the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Act 1989. Refrigerant handling licences only applies to flurocarbon refrigerant. and are NOT required for CO2, hydrocarbons or ammonia refrigerants. Under the Ozone and Synthetic Gas Management Regulations 1995 (‘the Regulations’), a Refrigerant Trading Authorisation is required when a business or individual wishes to acquire, possess or dispose of refrigerant. Anyone wanting to install, service or repair an air conditioner, or any other piece of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment must be a licensed technician under the regulations. A Refrigerant Trading Authorisation is subject to conditions and auditing processes designed to minimise the risk of emissions while the refrigerant is in the business or individual’s possession. The holder of a Refrigerant Handling Licence is an individual who is qualified in their field of activity and has met the licensing requirements under the regulations. http://www.arctick.org/legislation_regulation.php Follow this kink to view the Act, and the Regs. Another necessary part of handling flurocarbons is the Refrigerant Handling Code of Practice (COP) parts 1 and 2. These are covered in more detail in the unit UEENEEJ108A, and other refrigeration units of competency. For more information on the COP, follow this link. Handlng refrigerant without a licence is illegal. http://www.arctick.org/cop.php The Act is designed to reduce emissions of environmentally harmful refrigerant gases. 45A Regulation of disposal, use etc. of scheduled substances
(1) The regulations may make provision for the following:
(a) regulating the sale or purchase, or any other acquisition or
disposal, of scheduled substances;
(b) regulating the storage, use or handling of scheduled
(c) labelling requirements for scheduled substances and for
products that contain or use scheduled substances;
(d) conferring functions on persons or bodies (including
non-government bodies) in relation to matters covered by
paragraph (a), (b) or (c);
(e) matters incidental to matters covered by paragraph (a), (b),
(c) or (d). Ozone Protection and Synthetic

'Sign off' when you complete the capstone test at the end of your apprenticeship. Obligations for the registered training organisation (RTO)
'On the job' and 'off the job' training,
Qualifications understanding the pathway to complete your training and become a tradesperson at the completion of your apprenticeship. Supervising registered training organisations (SRTOs) deliver training to apprentices or trainees under an agreed training plan. (Sample below from SkillsTech Australia) Prior to registration of the apprenticeship or traineeship, the nominated training organisation must agree to be the supervising registered training organisation for the apprenticeship or traineeship. If the apprenticeship or traineeship is school-based, the supervising registered training organisation must include the school when negotiating the training plan. Refer to the Refrigerant handling licence Information brochure to find the Licence Code and approved qualifications required for the licence you are applying for. Use this link for more info: http://www.arctick.org/rhl.php Apprentices must have a trainee ARC licence! No trainee Refrigerant Handling Licence? You will not be permitted to work in the practical workshops where refrigerants are used. Note! Reg 135 (1) Sub Para (a): The Code of Practice is on table 135. So what is a Refrigerant Trading Authorisation (RTA)? There are now three types of RTAs that can be issued by ARC, dependant on how an individual or business uses and/or engages with fluorocarbon refrigerant. 1. The most common RTA caters for an individual or business that acquires, stores and/or disposes of refrigerant (other than halon). Typically, this would suit wholesalers, RAC and automotive businesses, sole traders and contractors. 2. The second type of RTA caters for businesses that need to acquire refrigerant (other than halon) for use in the manufacture of RAC equipment. This is titled as a ‘refrigeration and airconditioning equipment manufacturing authorisation’ (RAEMA). 3. The new type of RTA is the ‘restricted refrigerant trading authorisation’ (RRTA) which caters for businesses that are authorised to recover refrigerant from RAC equipment, store and dispose of refrigerant. The types of businesses most likely to require an RRTA are metal recyclers, auto parts recyclers and waste management businesses. For more information on refrigerant training authorisations, visit the ARC website: http://www.arctick.org/rta.php Other ARCtick information The ARCtick website has a lot of information for the
refrigeration and air conditioning industry including: Online applications

Wholesaler Consumers are encouraged by ARC to use licenced tradespeople for refrigeration and air conditioning. Refer to the 'Look for the tick' website: http://www.lookforthetick.com.au/ Licence holders also receive an ARC newsletter titled 'Coolchange'.
The newsletter contains important information regarding licensing and other information. http://www.arctick.org/pdf/newsletter/30012503_coolchange_march_2011_e_version.pdf 1. Communication Prepare documentation on particular work tasks including evaluations, reports, timesheets and costing 3. Problem Solving Apply lateral thinking ideas to generate solutions in response to work problems 2. Teamwork Relate to people from a range of social, cultural and ethnic backgrounds and physical and mental abilities 4. Initiative & Enterprise Recognise and respond to circumstances outside instructions or personal competence 6. Self Management Accept responsibility for given tasks 5. Planning & Organising Plan and organise activities to enable choices of maintenance methods of equipment, tools and related work documentation 7. Learning to Take control and manage own learning 8. Technology Use workplace technology to communicate with the client, document and present information One of the key functions of the service technician is completion of the appropriate paperwork. Each workplace has their own style of forms and procedures that are necessary to ensure payment from the customer, or to pay suppliers accounts. When completing the service report, ensure that you have answered the following questions:
•What is the reported fault?
•What fault (if any) did you find?
•How did you / will you fix it?
•What condition is the unit in now? And
•Is any other work /quote required? (This is an opportunity to add value to the job). Use the following as a guide and always follow company policies or procedures:
•Complete all relevant paper work for each job while onsite, (do not leave it for later),
•Use plain English for describing what work was carried out, (leave out trade argon and acronyms),
•Always get the customer order number/work order and have the appropriate person sign your service sheet, always write that persons name next to the signature.
•Ensure your writing is legible: write neatly and spell correctly – use block capitals if necessary,
•Record the details of what equipment was worked on, include model, serial number, location etc,
•Use a separate job for each item of equipment worked on,
•Include any settings that were made. For example, Low Pressure ‘cut out’ 30 kPa.
•List all parts used including sundry items,
•Ensure the unit works correctly BEFORE LEAVING SITE. (Customers will not pay for your time to return and correct your mistakes). Other What else should I know about being a tradesman?

The best employers, with the best pay and conditions, only keep the best tradespeople! Being a tradesperson involves many skills and attributes not covered in the apprenticeship. There are personal attributes that can not be taught, such as maintaining a positive attitude, and diligent work ethics. Desirable tradesperson attributes include: Remember! as a tradie you will be required to work in customer's premises including their homes. Some of these places may be culturally sensitive, for example:
funeral homes,
places of religious worship,
museums, or
places listed as significant to Australia's heritage. You will be required to act and behave appropriately! Licensing – Refrigerant Handling - Synthetic Refrigerants

• To handle or use these refrigerant requires an Arctick licence
• When your apprenticeship is completed, apply to Arctick for the RAC01 licence. Licensing – Hydrocarbon Refrigerants

To handle or use these refrigerant requires licensing from the Queensland Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation
When your apprenticeship is completed, apply to the department for a licence to handle and use hydrocarbon refrigerants.
You will have had to have successfully completed the relevant additional training. Licensing – Carbon Dioxide (CO2) R744

There are no known licensing requirements in Queensland to work on plant containing carbon dioxide as a refrigerant.
As part of workplace health and safety requirements, companies involved in “CO2 refrigeration” would have internal procedures in place.
