Building Energy Management Training Systems
The Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration (HVAC-R) industry is thriving. Newer control systems improve the energy efficiency and simplify the management. Technical and vocational schools must adapt their curriculum to match technological developments and environmental concerns in order to train skilled and knowledgeable workers. Realistic, hands-on learning is key to success. The HVAC-R line of training systems helps students learn principles and control of HVAC-R systems, and develop practical knowledge on how to install, maintain, and troubleshoot them.

- General Description
- Topic Coverage
- System Variations
The Building Energy Management Training Systems form a complete introduction to direct digital control (DDC) of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. They cover the main control schemes used in building energy management. This includes single-zone and multi-zone control, constant air volume (CAV) systems, and variable air volume (VAV) systems. The training systems allow students to acquire hands-on experience with industrial HVAC control equipment.
– All systems use actual residential, industrial, and commercial devices for real-life practice.
– Comprehensive curriculum with hands-on exercises accompanies each system.
– Each component is visible and used in a realistic context, thus promoting a better understanding.
– Electrical components are specific to the HVAC-R field, and mandatory electrical concepts are explained in the curriculum.
– Training follows recognized certifications such as HVAC Excellence, NATE, NOCTI, and NCCER, for better alignment to industry needs.

3460 – Electricity Fundamentals
The Electricity Fundamentals Training System is a complete introduction to electricity and to the electrical components used in HVAC systems. Through this program, students learn how to connect, perform measurements, calculate, and troubleshoot circuits.
3467 – Multi-Zone Wireless Control Training System
The Multi-Zone Wireless Control Training System features a rooftop unit controller that interacts with zone controllers using a wireless communication protocol. The curriculum explains fl oating and analog control of a single-zone, as well as multi-zone control. This training system allows students to acquire hands-on experience with industrial HVAC control.
3466 – Building Energy Management Training System
The Building Energy Management Training System is a complete introduction to direct digital control (DDC) of HVAC systems. It covers the main schemes of control used in building energy management. This includes single-zone control, constant air volume systems, and variable air volume systems. The course material covers important topics such as heating, cooling, free cooling, smoke detection, CO2 level detection, humidity control, and human-machine interfaces (HMI).
3463 – Electric Heating Training System
The electric Heating Training Systems uses a modular design approach to study the control of an electric residential forced-air system. The system features components that the learners will eventually work with in the field, such as a thermostat, a control transformer, sequencers and thermal limit switches.
