RACCA Australia has published their third article in their Throwback Thursday–ARBS Series.
This week’s article focuses on the WorldSkills Australia Refrigeration Competition at ARBS 2002.
Regional WorldSkills competitions for refrigeration were conducted during the ARBS Exhibition, held in Sydney from 25-27 March. Over the three days, competitions were conducted for the Hunter, Illawarra and Sydney regions of New South Wales, to find the best young refrigeration mechanic in each region.
In each regional competition, eight refrigeration mechanics competed in the eight hour competition, which required them to fabricate a copper manifold, diagnose refrigeration and electrical faults on refrigerators and RAC’s, set an electronic controller and retrofit an R22 air conditioning unit.
