Explore a career in cooling!
Whether you are happiest at home or an adventurous globetrotter, a career in the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump industry can help you realise your dreams. As an installer you have the freedom to work locally, or around the world. Unlimited in scope of work, you will learn all about using energy transfer to supply heat to or remove it from all kinds of buildings, vehicles and environments.
Refrigeration and air conditioning systems exist everywhere in society: shops, offices, hotels, ice rinks, ships, hospitals... there is virtually nowhere you can go in the world where refrigeration technology is not essential to modern life.
Refrigeration service engineers ensure that the food we eat arrives from its source to the best restaurants or to our local markets without losing quality on the way, and that essential medicines can get to where they are needed to sustain life in the harshest of climates. Our systems are energy efficient and provide a comfortable environment for people. We make sure foods stay fresh and frozen, and we push the boundaries of design to turn concepts into reality.
Refrigeration service engineers assemble, maintain and service all types of refrigeration systems and large heat pumps. You will learn basic cryogenics, mechanical engineering, ventilation, plumbing, electrical engineering and automation.
A wide variety of interesting work is a hallmark of the industry and there are no limits for people who want a rich professional life.
