The Las Vegas training center will host a Residential Sheet Metal Instructor Training Programs I and II Sept. 18-25, 2005. These programs are designed for other training centers interested in expanding existing residential programs or starting a new residential program.
The Residential I course provides an overview of materials and installation, commonly used systems and new technology, as well as market trends. In addition, attendees will receive information to develop a comprehensive plan to teach residential sheet metal and tailor that information to meet specific regional needs. Upon completion, instructors can train new, current or recently organized professionals in residential HVAC.
Residential II offers more hands-on technical training and includes a day and a half of software training covering estimating job costs, heat load calculation and a duct design computerized drawing program. In addition, this advanced course covers geothermal installation, low voltage wiring, planning zones, and unit charging and start-up.
This one-week intensive program operates on a six-day format. Participants will travel in on Sunday and attend classes Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., daily. Saturday is a half-day with a lunch and an awarding of certificates, with participants leaving on Sunday.
The enrollment deadline is Aug. 14, 2005. Residential Instructor Training I and II courses are being held simultaneously the week of Sept. 18th. Participants must have completed the Basic Instructor’s Training Program in order to attend the first program. Graduates of last year’s Residential I course are eligible to attend Residential II.
