Technology: the Great, the Good and the Evil

Dr. Christopher Molnar, Curriculum Director, Porter and Chester Institutes

Legacy North 1

Using a successful model, this session will show how to modernize and standardize a curriculum

by implementing tablets, replacing paper with electronic, and implementing instructional

technology in a vocational program while increasing student involvement, soft skills, and

responsibility. The tablet has many more uses than just an e-book reader or a game machine,

it can make a difference in your classroom. Attendees will explore a model that can be followed

by others. Upon completion of this session attendees will have developed a game plan to bring

instructional technology into their HVAC programs and be able to anticipate and navigate some

of the obstacles to success.

3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

CEU Value 0.2

The United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting

Industry of the United States, Canada and Australia (UA) has been involved in training since

1889. As times change, so has the way the UA recruits the technicians needed by their

employer partners. This session will discuss how HVACR educational programs can place their

graduates into the UA apprenticeship program, how to get members of the UA and their

employer partners to participate in your program advisory board, and advanced placement

opportunities for graduates of HVAC Excellence accredited programs. Time will be permitted to

allow attendees to ask questions and interact as a group.

HVAC and the Cloud: The Sky Has No Limit

Tim Burke, Strategic Marketing Manager, White-Rodgers

Legacy South 2

Wi-Fi Thermostats began a paradigm shift in the HVAC industry. Now manufacturers are

coupling Wi-Fi to the Cloud in their equipment to create all new HVAC business models for

residential applications. Learn how smart systems are changing the way the industry installs

and services HVAC equipment. Attendees will learn the importance of teaching cloud based

technologies as a key to the success of new HVAC technicians entering our market.

It's the Law! Ventilation & Makeup Air—You Need to Know it!

Tim Begoske, Director of Training, North America, Field Controls

Legacy South 3

The 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) requires ventilation and makeup air

for residential applications. In order for you to teach it, you need to understand how to size,

select, install, program and manage these systems for health and efficiency. Most problems are

simply due to a lack of understanding. Exhaust, supply, balanced ventilation systems, and how

makeup air is handled independently will be discussed during this session.
