HVACR technicians from across Australia can achieve accredited CO2 training via the newly opened, Sydney Beijer Ref Academy. Beijer Ref and Superior Training Centre Pty Ltd (RTO ID Number 41122) have collaborated to offer the only nationally accredited CO2 course currently running in Australia on state-of-the-art equipment in a custom-built facility.

“This is an important step forward in the upskilling of technicians in CO2 systems technology. The training combines theory and practical and technicians are working on the latest equipment within the Beijer Ref Academy.”

Upon successful completion of the 2-day course attendees are awarded a statement of attainment (see below for details). The accreditation is authorised by Superior Training Centre and recorded against the technician’s unique student identifier.
