Online Course – Self Paced

(to be completed during dates shown)

In this module, learners will be introduced to HVAC systems, thermodynamics, psychrometrics, intro to plans, hydronics and pumps. This module consists of two virtual instructor-led training (VILT) sessions and self-directed on-line content.



Learning Objectives:

•   Identify each type of HVAC equipment (water-cooled chiller, air-cooled chiller, water-source heat pump, rooftop unit, air handler unit, air terminal system, and variable refrigerant volume)
•   Explain how each type of equipment works in a system


THERMODYNAMICS (self-directed online content)

Learning Objectives:

•    Describe the differences between latent and sensible heat
•    Describe each type of heat transfer (radiation, conduction, and convection)
•    Provide examples of each type of heat transfer
•    Calculate heat transfer to size a coil (sales) or to check coil efficiency (service)
•    Explain the relationship between pressure and temperature



Learning Objectives:

•    Read the sequence order of a plan to use in the field
•    Identify the most common HVAC-associated symbols on a plan
•    Identify the scale of a given plan
•    Use the support column grid to successfully navigate a plan
•    Identify the correct sequence of key components
•    Explain how the key components fit into piping, duct work, and plumbing


PYSCHROMETRICS (self-directed online content)

Learning Objectives:

•    Read a psychrometric chart and locate a state point on the chart
•    Use a psychrometric chart to calculate the state point between outside air and return air in order to determine the correct damper positioning
•    Explain the relationship between air flow and humidity, and the impact equipment could have on each
•    Plot key types of HVAC equipment on a psychrometric chart
•    Explain how to remove latent or sensible energy by confirming or sizing a refrigerant coil


HYDRONICS & PUMPS (self-directed online content)

Learning Objectives:

•    Identify key components of a hydronic system
•    Accurately read a pump curve
•    Identify causes for cavitation in a pump
•    Convert measurements from Pounds per Square Inch Guage (PSIG) to Foot of Head (FtHd)
•    Calculate an equivalent piping length
