Understanding the operation, maintenance and appropriate trouble response to power system equipment begins with a detailed knowledge of and ability to read and interpret electrical prints. This course is designed to provide the knowledge of the various types of electrical diagrams used in the industry, and to develop the skills necessary to read, draw, and interpret these diagrams. With a basic understanding of diagrams, technicians and engineers are able to develop a logical pattern of troubleshooting that can aid in the successful analysis of systems.
Inherent dangers exist with the daily operations of HVAC systems. The proper understanding and knowledge provided to staff allow for staff to be proactive in their pursuit of optimum system operations.
The purpose of this course is to give the students an understanding of the complexities associated with working on or around HVAC systems as well as electricity. Anyone who works on or near HVAC or electrical equipment as well as supervisors, managers and safety personnel should attend this course.
