Since April 2021, over 350 students have undertaken the AIRAH accredited Professional Diploma in Building Services – HVAC&R.

Helping you to fast track your knowledge of HVAC&R in a flexible and supportive learning environment, the nine-month program was also named the Outstanding Industry Education/Training Awards at the ARBS 2020 Industry Awards.

Here is what some of our course participants have said about their experience:

AIRAH PDBS testimonials “Though challenging, this program provides extremely valuable learning material that is concise and easy to comprehend. The learning material is specifically aimed at addressing the fundamental skills required to be a competent and diligent HVAC&R professional. I highly recommend it to employers and individuals concerned about the widening skills gap. Our industry demands competent, diligent HVAC&R professionals who can correctly harness the power of technology to complement, rather than do, our designs. This Diploma ensures this demand will be met and the integrity of the profession retained – not retired.”

AIRAH PDBS testimonials “The course is demanding but flexible, allowing you to progress through the 12 case studies assessments at your own pace. Each assessment has something unique to offer, enabling you to gain technical knowledge that can be applied immediately to your daily work. I found myself engaged throughout the entire course, from the initial site visit of a commercial building up to the submission of a complete scope of works documentation suitable for tendering. I appreciate the detailed feedback provided for every assessment from the experienced assessors. It offered me guidance on design processes and helped to reinforce my knowledge. To anyone thinking to start a career in building services, I highly recommend this course.”
