Promoting careers - new podcast episode available now

Members discuss the future of skills and training in the RACHP sector.  We ask why everyone is going to have to up their game, as far as skills go, to achieve net zero objectives.  From fundamentals to new technologies, integration to behaviours.  We ask what does the future hold for training and how can we as individuals make a difference.

And for those interested in following up on some of the STEM initiatives that John and Richard mention in the discussion there are some links at the IOR website here 


Updated bulletins now available

We have released five updated technical bulletins on various topics including copper pipework support & routing, indirect leak check, cold weather low ambient, effective evacuation and reclaiming refrigerants.


Recording of award-winning paper available
