Introduction to HVACR Systems Course Number 47.41400 Syllabus

  • This course is preceded by the Industry Fundamentals and Occupational Safety course and offers an opportunity for students to build on the knowledge and skills developed in the Fundamentals course.

    Students will be introduced to two-construction craft areas.  As the second step in gaining a Level One Industry Certification in one of two craft areas, the goal of the course is to introduce students to the basic building blocks of the HVACR and Low Voltage Electrical craft trades.

    Students will explore how the crafts affect the mechanical systems in a building and will learn and apply knowledge of the electrical, electronic, and mechanical components related to each trade. In addition, students will be introduced to, and develop skills to differentiate between tools used in each individual craft area.
