Program Details

This self-paced online course uses hands-on service call simulations to prepare you for the HVAC Excellence or NATE certification exams.

You'll learn how to explain the concepts of heat transfer, BTU, temperature, heat content, sensible heat, latent heat, pressure, gas laws, and work, and describe how they apply to air conditioning and refrigeration systems.

You'll understand the four basic components that make up the vapor compression refrigeration cycle, as well as the four major system components and their functions.

You'll know how to properly install an air-conditioning system and put it into operation. We'll also cover troubleshooting for mechanical and electrical problems in air conditioning and heat pump systems.

Real-world simulations will give you "hands-on" experience and soft skills simulations will help sharpen your customer service skills.

By course completion, you will be fully prepared to sit for the HVAC Excellence Employment Ready Certificate Exams, the NATE Ready to Work Certificate Exams, and the EPA 608 Refrigerant Handling Certification Exam.

This program comes with an HVAC Excellence ESCO Group Voucher Package that includes one Principals of Electrical and Refrigeration (Core) exam voucher, one Professional Technician exam voucher (Residential Air Conditioning recommended), and one EPA 608 exam voucher.
