About the Program

Our 158-VAV System Course has launched

Enrollment Information for 158-VAV Troubleshooting

This advanced program is designed for HVAC Technicians and others involved in the HVAC industry.  It will begin with the Fundamentals of HVAC Control Systems and move all the way through troubleshooting systems. This program will prepare students with a strong understanding of typical HVAC mechanical systems in a commercial building environment. In turn, the student will gain an understanding of the different types of control systems and concepts used in these commercial buildings.

 

The program discusses electric and electronic control systems used in commercial HVAC systems. Building Automation Systems (BAS) are discussed in detail, starting with older systems and proceeding to today’s modern web-based systems. The student learns the types and methods of operator interfaces in commercial buildings, as well as the different types of BAS inputs and outputs in detail.

 

Moving on, students learn the skills and in-depth understanding needed to install and program typical modern BAS equipment. Instruction is carried out in a vendor-independent manner. VAV terminal box, Air Handling Unit, and Central Boiler/Chiller Plant Programming will be used as examples.

 

Moving further on, HVAC Technicians and others involved in the HVAC, industry learn BAS advanced implementation strategies regarding energy saving features. This program also equips the technician to perform basic service troubleshooting of BAS and understand the role and structure of interoperable systems including BACNET and LON. The student will then be able to work with commissioning agents to ensure proper BAS operation and implementation.

 

A series of recorded video lecture presentations included with each learning module are covered in detail in a ‘ride-along in the service van’ format. All scenarios are derived from actual service calls. Upon completion of this program, the technician will have covered a minimum 75% of the most frequent service calls on BAS/DDC.

 

  • The program complies with ANSI/ACCA Quality Installation & Maintenance Standards.
  • The textbook HVAC Control Systems is included in the tuition for this program.

 

Online Self Directed Training

The online program is a Career Technical Education (CTE) model. Student support is provided by the student services crew and faculty instructors through email, chat, and phone.


For the Employer (if applicable to your situation)

  • Employer notification of less than satisfactory performance
  • Reporting to employer on student progress


For the Student

  • Registration into each course in the program sequence one at a time
  • Certificate of Completion upon successfully passing each course
  • Online Faculty- mentoring and technical topic assistance directly for each student
  • Business hour communications via email, chat, and phone

 

Training and Time Management

The online program model is called an Asynchronous Learning Network (ALN). The study is self-paced and ONLINE, done on your schedule on your time and at your place but must be diligently pursued to complete each course.

 

  • The program allows a 60-day enrollment per course. Our students can move through the course material more quickly, no restrictions.
  • The best way of getting the look and feel of the program is to schedule a live demonstration with one of us.
