An introductory course in commercial refrigeration systems which provides a background in the scientific principles related to heat and temperature, and the transfer of heat.  This course includes a study of the basic refrigeration cycle, the function of each system component, and interrelationships between components.  Applied refrigeration concepts will be covered in demonstrations in the classroom, labs and computer simulations. 

ACREF-076  SECTION 0626 - HVAC - Residential and Small Commercial Air Conditioning Technology

2  UNITS     8/23-10/17

An introductory course in residential and light commercial air conditioning which provides a background on the scientific principles related to heat and temperature, transfer of heat, and air conditioning systems.  This covers applied air conditioning concepts through demonstrations in the lab, and computer simulation.  It prepares students/technicians for specific HVAC industry competency, licensing and certification examinations.




Don't let the advanced title scare you.  All levels of students welcome in this class.

APPLI-014  Section 7030  Advanced Electrical Appliances

3 UNITS   Tuesday Evenings from 6:00 p.m.- 9:10 p.m.

This course is designed to give new students a good base and returning students a strong background in the repair of washers, dryers, dishwashers, trash compactors and both gas and electric stoves.  The course focuses on theory and practice in the diagnosis and repair of these machines.  The class will revisit electrical concepts and how to use an electrical meter and schematic to diagnosis problems, operations and operational theory.  Students are required to take at least 1 lab class to practice what they learn in lecture. 

APPLI-025  Section 7031  Refrigeration 1

4 UNITS  Monday and Wednesday Mornings from 9:30-12:00.

This is a basic refrigeration course covering the principles and theories of refrigeration.  Students will learn about heat transfer, and what causes a refrigerator to "cool", as well as the electrical and mechanical parts that help it to function properly.  They will also learn what is required by the EPA when servicing a refrigeration system, how to use refrigerant recovery equipment  and have the chance to take their EPA 608 certification test if they desire.  This is taken on-line in our classroom (cost $50).  Students are required to take at least 1 lab class to practice what they learn in lecture.
