This course is intended to improve a technician’s ability and confidence when electrically troubleshooting commercial HVAC equipment. The course will broaden the technician’s capabilities to troubleshoot controls and other electrical circuits by teaching an understanding of practical electrical theory as applied to the products and components found in HVAC. The information and skills learned should greatly decrease service diagnosis time and take the guesswork out of isolating problems found in single and three-phase air conditioning and heating products. This course makes extensive use of lab hands-on methods.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to
- Define and use fundamental electrical terms, laws and formulas for understanding what electricity is and what it does.
- Discuss the basics of series, parallel and series-parallel circuits.
- Identify the proper usage of meters required to troubleshoot electricity.
- Increase confidence and ability in reading complex wiring diagrams.
- Discuss the control logic and sequence of unit operation.
- Discuss safeties and component operation in Trane equipment.
- Recognize characteristics of single- and three-phase motors and their associated control components.
- Discuss the principal maintenance requirements for longer operating life of electrical components.
- Practice systematic methods of electrical troubleshooting for all major HVAC products.
Our programs use a variety of assessment methods to measure learning, from pre and post tests, to classroom activities, quizzes and workshops.
