AIRAH is the only body solely focused on representing mechanical engineer – HVAC&R building services professionals.

The AIRAH Professional Engineer Register (APER) is the professional accreditation for engineers operating in the HVAC&R building services industry. It demonstrates to the public that an engineer is qualified, competent, and ethical.

APER has been designed to meet the requirements of the Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ) and other state-based schemes as they are released.

AIRAH is an approved assessor by the Board of Professional Engineers of Queensland (BPEQ) for the RPEQ system.

The APER is open to both AIRAH members and non-members. AIRAH members on the register may carry the post-nominal of AIRAH Registered Professional Engineer (ARPEng) – the practical mark of quality in engineering.
