Compressors/Condensers/Cooling Towers
$189.00 (1 section available)
This 8-hour class will provide comprehensive instruction on three major components of refrigeration and air conditioning systems: compressors, condensers, and cooling towers. Students will gain knowledge of types of compressors, (open, semi-hermetic, and hermetic). Air-cooled condensers, water-cooled condensers, evaporative condensers and cooling towers, and water treatment are also covered. Safety aspects of work on this equipment will be covered.

Fire Codes You Need to Know
$189.00 (1 section available)
In this 8-hour course, participants will discover how each code agency views Fire Dampers, depending whether it is being installed in a wall, ceiling, or floor and the type of construction. Participants will review inspection criteria after the installation date, re-inspection, then subsequent 4-6-year inspections depending on the classification of the building. Participants will be come familiar with organizations and code books regulating installation, inspection and repair of fire and smoke dampers
