The Kirby Apprentice Fund is celebrating its 2nd year anniversary with the announcement of Training Scholarships to promote the use of natural refrigerants.

The Naturals Training Scholarships offered by Kirby will be available to 4th-year apprentices registered in the Kirby Apprentice Fund who want to further their trade knowledge with an understanding of Naturals refrigerants.

The scholarship will facilitate apprentices attending a 3-day Natural Refrigerants Training Experience consisting of ARC CO2 Green Scheme Accreditation and a day of practical systems exposure at the Sydney-based, Beijer Ref Training Academy.

Beijer Ref brand and communications manager, Elizabeth Paparo says apprentices will benefit from a unique opportunity where they can combine classroom theory with safe and controlled, practical systems exposure.

“It is gratifying for Kirby as a business to be able to give back to our industry and support apprentices in this way. Beijer Ref is committed to advancing the growth of naturals technology, so this provides a means of educating technicians during their apprenticeship years.”

“As part of the Year 2 celebrations all registered Kirby Apprentice Fund apprentices will also receive some free CPS trade tools and additional tools support.”

The Kirby Apprentice Fund was established in 2019 as a way of supporting industry apprentices and strengthening the technical skills of the HVAC&R industry. Kirby raises funds through various programs and uses those funds to provide trade tools and skills development opportunities.
Scholarship applications are now open and close on 31 August 2021.
