The Master Refrigeration Program is designed to complement other training programs and experience gained in Heating Ventilation and Air-conditioning Industry. The AMCA has adopted a blended delivery method, integrating technology enhanced learning using AMCA’s Learning Management System with face-to-face teaching using the RCCC PODs to enhance the student learning experience.
This course provides an introduction to the requirements for maintaining ventilation and air conditioning systems related to essential safety measures (ESMs) such as fire and smoke control measures of air handling systems, also known as Life Safety Systems.
The course focuses on responsibilities and statutory requirements of building owners, contractors and maintenance technicians while maintaining and testing ESM’s.
The student, having completed the course, will be able to identify ESM’s, prepare a maintenance strategy, carry out test and maintain maintenance records.
The student will be required to complete 3 assessments:
- Carry out building inspection and maintenance of ESM – completed during the course
- Plan maintenance and collate ESM checklist – to be returned within 30 days
- Maintaining ESM records - to be returned within 30 days
To be competent in planning and carrying out ESM maintenance and checking the system operation and performance to the Australian Standard for installation and maintenance:
AS1668.2, BCA (part of the NCC) AS3666, AS1851
2 Days - Program is delivered over 2 days x 8 sessions.
Day 1 Theory
Day 2 Practical at RCCC, Box Hill Institute. commissioning and testing in a simulated 3 story building (stairwell pressurisation Pod)
The student will be required to complete 3 assessments in class.
Stairwell Pressurization Pod
The stairwell pressurization pod replicates a building fire escape stairwell and 3 floors for the purposes of demonstrating the operation and maintenance of zone pressurization and stairwell pressurization systems while a building is in fire mode. Learners will be able to plan and carryout ESM maintenance; checking the system operation and performance to the standards: The ESM pod allows the trainer to carry out both formative and summative assessments and presents the learner with a close to real situation that he or she would encounter in the field.
Statement of Attainment for VU21960 issued by Box Hill Institute.
This unit is an Elective unit for the 22329VIC Course in Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Services Certificate.
