Course description

HVAC Workshop: Air Conditioning & Boilers - On-site Training

The goal of this two-day Air Conditioning and Refrigeration course is to provide a broad introduction to air conditioning and refrigeration systems, including everyday operation & important refrigerant safety practices. The course is a great overview for maintenance technicians, multi-craft tradespeople, building managers, HVAC technicians, or anyone seeking to improve their AC&R operation and maintenance skills.

Students are taught common practices and some “tricks-of-the-trade” for general operation and maintenance of their AC&R systems. They will learn about maintenance schedules and servicing, system diagnostics, troubleshooting, and fine-tuning to gain maximum efficiency. The course also covers an introduction to commercial and industrial chillers, regulatory laws and energy conservation. Overall, we will help you get the maximum life out of your Air Conditioning and Refrigeration systems while keeping it up and running as efficiently and consistently as possible.
