We’re thrilled to announce new learning systems from Amatrol that train HVAC skills for job readiness!
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the need for heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers through 2028 will grow by 13%. This is rated as “much faster than average” for all job markets.
Why is there a growing need for HVAC (and R) technicians? There are plenty – so we’ll list a few of the most impactful:
HVAC is a field where there will always be a need for workers. It’s a great career choice, and technical training programs who have specialized courses will find learners ready to work.
Amatrol, the world’s leading developer of technical training equipment, recognized these trends. In response, they’ve just released a new line of HVAC training equipment that will prepare learners for a rewarding career. We’re thrilled to share these with you!
Teach critical hands-on skills for refrigerant recovery and charging for R-134a refrigerant (Tetrafluoroethane) with the T7031 trainer. Learners will work with authentic industrial components, including: manifold gauges, submersible cooler, a recovery machine, temperature probe, filter dryer, low side liquid charger, vacuum pump, and micron vacuum gauge.
Teach skills for refrigerant recovery and charging for R-410a refrigerant (commonly known as Puron) with the T7032 trainer. Learners will work with authentic industrial components, including: a recovery machine, manifold gauges, submersible cooler, temperature probe, filter dryer, liquid vaporizer, low side liquid charger, vacuum pump, and micron vacuum gauge.
This new HVAC training system from Amatrol teaches students to work with residential ductless “mini-split” systems. Authentic industrial components include a heat pump condenser, evaporator unit, thermostat, panel-mounted gauges, and a condensate pump.
HVAC technicians need to be able to troubleshoot faults in systems. This new trainer teaches these skills for residential HVAC systems that use a heat pump and traditional ducting. True industrial components are used on this system, including: a heat pump condenser, heat pump air handler, Wi-Fi enabled thermostat, fuse box, ducting and manifold.
Troubleshooting is done with Amatrol’s specialized troubleshooting software: FaultPro. This electronic fault insertion system is used on many of Amatrol’s trainers and will help learners solve the types of problems they’ll encounter on the job.
Teaches basic refrigeration skills used by technicians in industrial, residential and commercial HVACR settings. The T7045 covers topics including temperature and pressure measurement, heat transfer, and phase change. Transparent sections in the refrigerant lines allow students to observe the refrigerant as it changes from gas to liquid as it travels through various components. Temperature and pressure gauges are installed in multiple locations providing students a better understanding of how the refrigeration cycle works.
Teaches installation of electrical and mechanical refrigeration/air conditioning components in residential or light commercial applications. The Combined Refrigeration Installation Learning System includes evaporator and condenser coils, a hermetically-sealed compressor, a filter/drier, and many more real-world industrial components that allows learners to practice skills with components that they’ll find on-the-job. The included multimedia curriculum covers topics like: copper tubing, refrigerant line routing and bending, flaring and swaging copper tubing, brazing and soldering refrigerant lines, and copper tubing insulation.
As always, Amatrol’s training systems are backed by curriculum that teaches the theory and practical knowledge needed to apply HVAC skills in the workplace. It’s vital that students understand the basic theory of HVAC technology and principles before progressing to working with the hands-on equipment.
Amatrol’s eLearning features interactive, multimedia graphics, videos and simulations to directly correlate knowledge to job skills. Courses include pre- and post-quizzes, plus exercises and knowledge checks within each lesson to ensure the learner is engaged with the content.
