Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration Schedule Our School.

Air Conditioning , Heating & Refrigeration Technology Diploma

This is a comprehensive HVAC training program in Heating and Air Conditioning Repair and Maintenance. It covers the basic principles of refrigeration and air conditioning. It emphasizes the understanding of electrical systems and covers major system components, testing equipment, troubleshooting procedures, types of refrigerant, refrigerant handling. Maintenance and repair of heating systems is also covered. You will also have the opportunity to work on our new custom  package unit wiring and troubleshooting modules. Everything we work on is live real world equipment that you will find in the field. You as the student will have your own equipment to work on and will not have to share your time with any other students.

Program Descriptions

A/C 101 FUNDAMENTALS OF REFRIGERATION (24 HRS)

This course includes the basic physical laws that apply to mechanical refrigeration. The functions of compressors, condensers, receivers, evaporators, metering devices, basic cycle controls, accessories & refrigerants, are also taught.

A/C 102 ELECTRICITY FOR AIR CONDITIONING (24 HRS)

This course deals in detail with both basic fundamentals of electricity and advanced electricity. This will include electron theory, OHM’s law, power equations & Kirchoff’s law relating to resistance, current, voltage & power in series & parallel circuits. The course will also include single-phase meter theory and electrical components used in A/C technology.

A/C 103 ELECTRIC HEAT & COOL (24 HRS)

This course combines A/C 100 and A/C 101 theory in “hands-on” wiring and running of actual units. Students will use various wiring diagrams to wire A/C units. Ambient charging procedures, refrigerant recovery and evacuation will also be taught.

A/C 104 HEAT PUMPS (24 HRS)

This course is an introduction to heat pumps & their operation. It will cover various defrost methods including time temperature, demand, air switch & other defrost controls. Superheat charging is also introduced.

A/C 105 GAS HEAT and BRAZING (24 HRS)

This course covers gas furnaces and gas packs. The nature of gas combustion, gas burners, gas valves, pilots, ignition systems, and operating controls. Brazing techniques are practiced in this course, as well as the proper method for compressor change-out.

A/C 106 TROUBLESHOOTING (24 HRS)

This advanced course will cover recommended service & diagnosis procedures for air conditioning systems. This will include general troubleshooting procedures for both mechanical & electrical systems.

Program Descriptions:

R-113 INTRO TO COMMERCIAL REFRIGERATION (12 Hrs)

This course includes the basic refrigeration cycle, application of low, medium and high temperature systems, and the typical equipment associated with those systems and basic wiring of controls, such as thermostatic expansion valves, capillary tubes, and defrost clocks and defrost systems.

R-114 LOW TEMPERATURE REFRIGERATION (12 Hrs)

This course introduces specific pump-down controls. Students will complete piping and wiring a real walk in freezer, pressurizing, leak checking, vacuuming, as well as refrigerant charging.

R-115 WALK-IN FREEZERS (12 Hrs)

This is a continuation of Ref 101 and includes adjusting TXV valves for superheat, calculating sub-cooling, troubleshooting flow controls, and testing compressor efficiency. This course covers the different types of ice machines and their components. It also deals with the cleaning of the equipment, different types of controls to ensure the equipment’s proper operation, and troubleshooting and repair of the equipment. Water -cooled condensers and remote condensers will also be covered.

R-116 ICE MACHINES (12Hrs)

This course covers the different types of ice machines and their components. It also deals with the cleaning of the equipment, different types of controls to ensure the equipment’s proper operation, and troubleshooting and repair of the equipment. Water -cooled condensers and remote condensers will also be covered.
