WorldSkills Australia (WSA) partner Heatcraft has announced its major sponsorship of the Refrigeration category for both the 2019 round of regional competitions and the 2020 WSA National Refrigeration Competition. It marks a 23-year association between Heatcraft and WSA.
“This is a long-established affiliation that aligns firmly with our core business and values, being a heritage of excellence in refrigeration and skill development,” says Heatcraft’s acting Vice President and General Manager Paul Campbell. “We are proud to continue to support and celebrate our industry’s future tradespeople through WorldSkills Australia.”
As the exclusive Gold Partner of the Refrigeration Category, Heatcraft will support young tradespeople as they test their skills and knowledge in local and regional competitions for the chance to win gold, silver and bronze medals and the opportunity to potentially compete at a national and international level.
Heatcraft also congratulated the current 2018 WSA Refrigeration and Air Conditioning national champions Patrick Brennan, gold medalist (Tony Stephens, Qld) and Chris McNally, silver medalist (Freezetec, Qld). As reported in the February issue of HVAC&R Nation, Patrick is now training with the goal of qualifying for the Skillaroos Team that will compete at the 45th WorldSkills International Competition in Kazan, Russia.
