July 25, 2002
DES PLAINES, IL — The Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES) Technical Institute recently released a series of specialized CD-ROM-based training programs called CBT3 (Computer-Based Technician Training and Troubleshooting).

The CDs allow individuals to improve their troubleshooting skills and increase their knowledge in technical areas such as residential split-system cooling, electrical troubleshooting, gas furnaces, and airflow, according to RSES.

The organization also says that the program features include a self-paced study, simple navigation, clear and concise audio lectures, animated visual graphics, and interactive troubleshooting exercises.

The four CBT3 CD titles currently available are “Residential Split-System Cooling: Mechanical Refrigeration Troubleshooting R-22/R-410A”; “Electrical Troubleshooting: Residential Split-System Air Conditioning”; “Gas Furnaces: Intermittent Spark-Ignition Systems”; and “Airflow Characteristics and Diagnostics.”

RSES says that CBT3 site licensing will be available this fall. For an annual fee, a site license will be available to institutions that need multiple copies of the same software to equip offices or campus networks, labs, or classrooms. For information, contact the Logistics Branch at RSES by calling 847-297-6464. The CDs can also be purchased by visiting the RSES online bookstore at www.rses.org (website).
