WorldSkills Australia is pleased to announce the top 10 refrigeration technicians from across the country who have been selected to progress to the 2014 WorldSkills Australia National Refrigeration Competition to be held in Melbourne 20-22 May.

The National Refrigeration Competition will again be held in conjunction with the Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Building Services (ARBS) Exhibition at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

For three exciting days, the competitors will be pushing their already refined skills to the limit in a series of refrigeration system challenges to then be judged by industry experts, all in the pursuit of a gold medal and the title of 'Nation’s Best’.
