ARLINGTON, Va. - The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) released another in its “HVAC Essentials” series of computer-based training packages. The latest package, Understanding Manual Q: Low Pressure, Low Velocity Duct Design in the Real World, covers information in Manual Q, ACCA’s industry standard system for designing duct systems that are used in the majority of low-rise commercial applications.

Combined with the recently released Understanding Manual N, these two packages provide a complete training system in light commercial sizing and duct system design.

Understanding Manual Q is a set of 5 CDs; each CD containing appropriate handouts and the training session, which lasts approximately one hour. Taught by presenter Jack Rise, the CDs are self-directed, allowing technicians, contractors, and students to proceed at their own pace, without requiring long periods of time away from work. The five CDs in Understanding Manual Q are: Part 1 - Airflow Basics, Part 2 - Fan Performance, Part 3 - Fan and Duct System Interface, Part 4 - Creating Comfort Using Manual T, Part 5 - Duct Sizing Methods.
