This training is the third in a series of three volumes. The series consists of 12 lessons intended to teach the basics of servicing HVAC-R equipment. The lessons move from general troubleshooting methods and procedures to working with specific types of equipment. Actual service calls are presented, giving the learner insight into authentic job situations. Customer service and safety are always stressed, with certain basic troubleshooting steps presented as universals.
The lessons are designed to show the student the steps needed to find the problem, not to detail the specific repair. The series provides an excellent visual introduction to the most common problems facing today’s HVAC-R technician.
