Understanding HVAC Systems (HVAC1) covers the fundamentals of how fuel is converted into energy, the types of space heating and cooling systems typically found in North American homes, and current ventilation system requirements for new construction.
Anyone in the home renovation or new construction industry can benefit from BHE’s online training. Busy people need easy access to CEUs. Learn in bite-size pieces!
HVAC takes about 3-5 hours to complete (including review time and quizzes)
Each of the 3 modules has a quiz at the end
- You need at least a 70% in each quiz to proceed to the next module (no limit on quiz attempts)
- There is no final exam on this course
