Air Conditioning & Refrigeration

Designed specifically for building, plant and facility maintenance & energy management, this course is designed for anyone who needs to understand basic operation, maintenance and troubleshooting of air conditioning and refrigeration systems ( AC&R ) in order to improve efficiencies and uptime at their industrial plants and large building facilities.

PRINCIPLES, COMPONENTS & SYSTEMS

This seminar students are provided a broad introduction to Air Conditioning and Refrigeration - a great training overview for apprentice technicians, multi-craft trades people, building managers, or anyone who wants to understand the general principles and concepts of A/C and Refrigeration. In addition to understanding these general principles, students will learn about the primary components and accessories used in air conditioning & refrigeration systems, how they work, and where and how these components and accessories are used in HVAC&R systems. Providing the student a well-rounded introduction to Air Conditioning and Refrigeration is the goal for Discussions about refrigerants & oils, and accompanying regulatory laws will also be included.

TROUBLESHOOTING, MAINTENANCE & OPERATING EFFICIENCY

Students that have a good understanding of A/C and Refrigeration components and systems are taught common practices (and some "tricks-of-the-trade") for general operation and maintenance of their A/C and Refrigeration systems. Achieving maximum performance for energy efficiency of your air conditioning & refrigeration system is the aim of to achieve this, students will learn about maintenance schedules and servicing, system diagnostics, troubleshooting techniques, and fine tuning to gain maximum efficiency. An introduction to commercial and industrial chillers will be covered in as well as regulatory laws and energy conservation.
