This class is for technicians with a basic understanding of the refrigeration cycle. If you are looking to gain a basic understanding of the refrigeration cycle, we recommend taking our “Basic A/C Operation, Start Up & Servicing (1 Day Class),” “A/C Principles, Theories, Installation & Troubleshooting (10 Day Class),” or “Intro to Air Conditioning (4 Day Class).”

The Heat Pump Operation, Testing, and Troubleshooting class will help both installation and service technicians better understand the operation of heat pumps.
