Kirby is proud to have established the Kirby Apprentice Fund to support apprentices and strengthen the technical skills of the HVAC&R industry.

Together with our employees and customers we raise funds through various programs and use those funds to provide trade tool support and skills development training to industry apprentices.

Each year the Kirby Apprentice Fund provides Natural Refrigerant (CO2) Training Scholarships to upskill apprentices and to promote the use of natural refrigerants. The exclusive Naturals Training Scholarships offered by Kirby are available to 4th year apprentices who want to further their trade knowledge with an understanding of naturals refrigerants. Places are limited and based on an application and selection process.

Supporting apprentices is a tradition that has long been part of the Kirby history. For over 25 years, Kirby has been the official Gold Partner, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning of WorldSkills Australia.

To maximise opportunities from the fund, all HVAC&R trade apprentices are encouraged to register their details here.
