This self-study course is designed to be taken at your convenience, and on your own schedule.  You have 90 days to finish the course from the time of purchase.

This self-study course provides a look at the general principles of HVAC, including psychrometrics, sensible heating and cooling, dehumidification and humidification, the adiabatic mixing process, air washers, cooling towers, ventilation and infiltration load calculations, heating and cooling load calculations, control components, refrigeration cycles, heat pumps, and refrigeration equipment. It will allow you to review basic knowledge of heating, cooling and refrigeration and test your knowledge with a final exam.

You will learn to:

  • Describe the properties of moist air
  • Explain sensible heating and cooling
  • Describe the process of humidification and dehumidification
  • Explain the adiabatic mixing process
  • Calculate loads for ventilation, infiltration, heating and cooling
  • Explain the different types of refrigeration cycles
  • Describe the heat pump
  • Describe a typical refrigeration system
