This TSA training workshop is designed for:

  • Maintenance techs who service heating and air conditioning units

In order to properly maintain and trouble-shoot air conditioning systems, technicians need a complete understanding of the refrigeration and air flow systems in HVAC equipment, and how they work together. This workshop will provide participants with the fundamental principles that are the basis of operation for modern refrigeration systems. Workshop participants will learn how to evaluate a refrigeration system, diagnose refrigeration system problems, check systems for proper air flow, and perform basic maintenance. Additionally, since many agencies have problems with Indoor Air Quality and mold issues, we have added a section to the workshop for those important considerations.

The workshop leader is a skilled professional trainer in HVAC and mechanical areas with many years of fulltime working experience in the Industry. TSA certificates will be presented to everyone who completes this training.
