Rodney Havens, training instructor in the HVAC program at Pickaway Ross Career & Technology Center in Chillicothe, OH, educates future technicians to become a successful part of the HVAC workforce. Through this program, students are given the opportunity to get certified and gain as much knowledge as they can before actually going out into their field and becoming part of the trade.
As a crucial part of his curriculum, Rodney uses the iConnect Training units, like the TU-105 Commercial Refrigeration Trainer, to provide hands-on experience with HVAC systems found in the field. “These trainers are set up where you can start off slow and work your way to more complicated systems,” said Rodney. First, he starts with the basic refrigeration cycle and then moves on to the entire refrigeration system. Later on his lesson plan, he requires students to troubleshoot issues based on the changes he’s made to the system.
Specifically with the TU-105 training unit, Rodney is able to demonstrate the refrigeration cycle so that the students can actually see the refrigerant moving throughout the system. When the instructor adjusts the airflow or changes the amount of refrigerant, the gauges are going to change in real-time. Future technicians can really benefit from being able to watch these adjustments right in front of them.
HVAC is one of the fastest growing trades. As it continues to grow, the need for effective training programs is critical to the success of the industry. With iConnect Training units, students come out of the classroom well ahead of their peers thanks to their firsthand experience with the systems they’ll encounter in the field. Instructors are also confident students can get right to work with no issues after learning from curriculum that’s paired with iConnect Training units.
