Our Introductory Course is the most basic. Taught with visual aids, overheads and actual equipment parts, it is intended to enable the students to identify easily the various pieces of HVAC equipment with which they may have to work.  It also gives them a preliminary understanding of the way this equipment works, the part it plays in the overall HVAC system and what is required for basic cleaning and maintenance.  While many employees are required to have a certain level of qualification, our experience has shown that they still need to learn to apply this in a practical way to the equipment they will be administering to in their work.
