Each year, ARA Mechanical, through its air conditioning subsidiary, Air Conditioning Engineering Services (ACES), offers employment and training to a minimum of four new apprentices.  This employment of apprentices demonstrates ACES’ commitment to training young people for a career in the air conditioning industry.

At the end of the four year apprenticeship, each successful apprentice is awarded a trade certificate and the opportunity to continue advancing their career within ARA Mechanical.

We have some enthusiastic young apprentices on board in 2017, who have shown real potential and growth in developing their skills. Already assets to our team, we look forward to watching them prosper and build their careers with ARA Mechanical.


A year ago in 2016, ACES employed a record high of 10 apprentices and was recognised by Sydney TAFE as being one of the largest employers of apprentices attending Sydney TAFE at one time.  As a result of this recognition, a member of the ARA Mechanical management team joined the advisory selection panel to shortlist the recruitment of the Senior Head Teacher in the Refrigeration & Air Conditioning department for 2017.

Mike Ratcliff, Operations Manager at ACES (seen below), works closely with each and every apprentice training and mentoring their development.

ARA Mechanical through its subsidiary, ACES, is proud to be affiliated with Sydney TAFE and honoured to be a part of such a meaningful appointment to the industry.

We are currently taking applications for our 2017/18 apprenticeships. For more information, please contact ARA Mechanical at 1300 33 ACES or visit our website:
