Course Title: SER028 - HVAC Mechanical Pro-Troubleshooting

Sponsoring Organization: Carrier Corp., Carrier University

Date: August 13-17, 2012

Location: Syracuse, N.Y.

Course Description: The course teaches fundamental skills needed to troubleshoot residential and light commercial HVAC refrigeration system problems. Students will be shown time-proven diagnostic techniques that they can apply immediately back on the job. The goal is to provide technicians with not only the skills and confidence to tackle any mechanical system malfunction (with emphasis on rapid and accurate discovery of the failed component), but also determining the root cause of the problem to eliminate repeat failures. This course was developed to be taken in conjunction with the HVAC Electrical Pro-Troubleshooting Course for complete troubleshooting proficiency, but can be taken as a stand-alone seminar if electrical troubleshooting techniques are already understood or are not needed. For technicians just entering the HVAC field or persons with no field experience, the HVAC Mechanical Pro-Troubleshooting course is most effective when proceeded by the BASIC Program (SER400), which introduces participants to fundamental concepts of both air conditioning and heating systems, and includes much more hands-on lab time with service test equipment and tools.

The SER028 course provides three credit hours from Onondaga Community College, a member of the State University of New York educational institution. (Credits may be transferable to other college degree programs.)
