essential team communication skills for effective student oversight.

Mobile, Mobile and More Mobile

Alan Zajac, Lead Instructional Technologist, Johnson Controls

Forum East 4

Mobile platforms are impacting both the training and HVACR profession in many ways. We must

prepare the people we are training and ourselves on any impact that mobile technologies will

have on: technicians on the job, learning in the classroom and lab and delivery of instruction.

This session will address mobile trends such as; wireless mobile user interfaces for equipment,

using mobile versus printed materials in classrooms/labs and delivering instruction using mobile


10:15 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.

CEU Value 0.2

Duct Leakage

Frank Spevak, Marketing and Sales Manager, The Energy Conservatory

Legacy North 1

This session will discuss the latest building code requirements for testing and sealing duct work

for both new construction and retrofit. We will cover how to perform two specific duct leakage

tests used to meet code and what the numbers mean.

Hands-on Method to Teach Operation & Troubleshooting Thermostatic Expansion


Eugene Silberstein, BEAP, CMHE, Co-Author, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Technology

Randy Petit, CMHE, Director of Program Development, HVAC Excellence

Legacy North 2

This hands-on demonstration will cover techniques that simplify an understanding of the theory,

operation, and troubleshooting of Thermostatic Expansion Valves. When students can control

the pressures and temperatures they can see the effects of valve operation and bring it all

together which enhances their ability to understand and troubleshoot TXV's efficiently.

Information for constructing this simple device used for the hands on demonstration will be

provided. The Thermostatic Expansion Valves used in this session are provided by Sporlan.
