Kirby is proud to have established the Kirby Apprentice Fund to support apprentices and strengthen the technical skills of the HVAC&R industry.
Together with our employees and customers we are raising funds through various programs and will use those funds to provide trade tools and skills development training to industry apprentices.
To support the Kirby Apprentice Fund you can purchase a Kirby T-shirt for $10 from any Kirby branch, with all profits directed to the Kirby Apprentice Fund. The trade t-shirts carry the message, ‘strengthening our trade’ - the essence of the fund’s purpose.
In addition, Kirby account customers can contribute a voluntary refrigerant levy to the fund, which is also fully invested back into the industry for the provision of tools and training.
To maximise opportunities from the fund, all HVAC&R trade apprentices are encouraged to register their details http://www.kirbyhvacr.com.au/kirby-apprentice-fund-registration.
Supporting apprentices is a tradition that has long been part of the Kirby history. For over 20 years, Kirby has been the official Gold Partner, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning of WorldSkills Australia.
