Registered Technicians Program

VASA members have full online access to what is often called “the bible of air conditioning”, the seven-volume Registered Technicians Program (RTP).

It is regarded as the only complete training program covering all aspects of vehicle air conditioning system maintenance ever written. Many VASA members use RTP to train new recruits because there is nothing like it anywhere else.

RTP was developed by a special VASA technical committee and written by Australia’s foremost trainer in air conditioning repair and practice, Grant Hand of Automotive Training Solutions.

VASA: The home of automotive technicians who are great at what they do.

Many VASA members are workshop owners and technicians, but VASA’s strength lies in its ability to accept manufacturers, wholesalers and educational institutions, thereby completing an effective network chain of auto industry professionals.

VASA offers free membership to all students while they are studying at a registered training organisation.

VASA members top up their knowledge at regular training events. Considered one of Australia’s most dynamic trainers in climate control, Grant Hand of Automotive Training Solutions, has been VASA’s preferred trainer since the very beginning.
