We would like to thank Kirby for supporting WorldSkills Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Competitions for the Regional and Metro areas. We would also like to thank them for their support of Skillaroo, Patrick Brennan. Kirby is helping Patrick on his journey to compete against the worlds best at the WorldSkills International Competition held in Kazan, Russia in August 2019. Patrick took the gold medal for Refrigeration and Air Conditioning at the WorldSkills National Competition and wants to do the same in Kazan.

Patrick, when asked about the WorldSkills International Competition, said “representing Australia will be a great honour and will be the highlight of my life.”


To follow Patrick’s journey to Kazan you can get updates from his Facebook page.
