Our Licences

What is an ARTICK licence?
Having an ARTICK licence is essential to operate in the HVACR industry. It guarantees the installers and technicians are appropriately trained in all aspects of the safe installation of air conditioners and refrigeration equipment.
Why should you look for the tick?
Looking for the ARC tick will give you peace of mind that the technician working on your equipment is professional and qualified and will adhere to the Industry’s Code of Practice. You are also doing the right thing by the environment and the law!

TSR holds an “unlimited design” QBCC (Queensland Building and Construction Commission) licence and is therefore qualified to design air conditioning systems of all sizes. This licence is most important and will always be made available to the client for their security and safety.
TSR also works closely with consulting engineers to achieve the best possible result for their clients. On many occasions TSR has been able to design and construct projects under their unlimited design licence. The success of these projects is reflected by the continued maintenance contracts established since completion.
