Climate Control News (CCN), in partnership with the Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC), is proud to present NextGen 2022.

NextGen 2022 continues to be an annual showcase of our best and brightest technicians under the age of 25, which includes Australian Industry Trade College (AITC) 2018 graduate , Ryan Marsh, from our Gold Coast campus.

Ryan discovered refrigeration and air conditioning while studying at the AITC, a school which allows you to complete your QCE and start a school-based apprenticeship.

His original plan was to become an electrician.

“While doing work experience I was at a place that did electrical work but also did refrigeration and air conditioning,” Ryan said.

“I found myself drawn to the refrigeration and air conditioning work and decided to make it my trade.”

The 21-year-old maintains that working as a technician means his daily tasks are varied. “There is a lot to learn — even welding.”

Ryan works at IceCap Refrigeration on the Gold Coast and plans to stay.

“I feel like I am still learning every day. There is still so much more for me to learn.”
