As the demand for skilled trades continues to grow, more and more high schools are developing HVAC/R programs to train the next generation of technicians. For some high schools, it’s a new HVACR program being added to their CTE offerings while others are looking to update or expand their current curriculum. iConnect Training has the highest-quality training units to complement any program.
Here are the three training units every high school HVAC/R program should have:
The basic refrigeration unit is one of iConnect Training’s most popular and flexible HVAC/R trainers. It’s four training units in one as it can run as a refrigerator, freezer, straight cool and even demonstrate heat pump mode. With so many options, it’s a great addition to any introductory course.
Students have the advantage of observing not one, but three different metering devices commonly found in HVACR equipment with the TU-100. Using hand valves to simply change between the metering device options, students can observe the operation of a capillary tube, automatic expansion valve and thermostatic expansion valve. They can practice proper charging, recovery and storage techniques which are essential skills needed for any technician to complete their EPA 608 certification. Also, future technicians will become more familiar with name brand components they’ll encounter out in the field.
