2015 HVAC Excellence Educators and Trainers Conference

21st Century Student Retention

Soneka Kamuhuza, Vice President of Education, Porter & Chester Institutes

Forum West 1 & 2

This session will help attendees understand how to develop and implement a dynamic and

robust retention management plan. Learn how to utilize technology and, through an

understanding of Gen Y characteristics, mitigate attrition. In addition, learn how to develop the

essential team communication skills for effective student oversight.

Programmatic Accreditation

Lem Palmer, CSME, Accreditation Specialist, HVAC Excellence

Forum East 4

HVAC Excellence programmatic accreditation reviews a program against a set of educational

and industry standards in: the mission of the program, administration responsibilities, finances

and funds, student services, instruction design and program elements, physical facilities,

equipment and tools, cooperative training, and instructor qualifications.

New Thermal Technologies Found in Cooling Equipment for Data Centers

Steve Wagner, Manager of Educational Services, Thermal Management Cooling

Products Manufactured by Emerson Network Power/Liebert

Legacy South 1

Today, we use digital scroll compressor technology, electronic expansion valves (EEV), and

pumped refrigerant to achieve the high efficiency demand for the data center. The digital scroll

design allows the scroll compressor to continue to operate while controlling the capacity of the

system. This new technology has been unique to Liebert products for several years. However, it

is now starting to be introduced into other areas of the HVAC industry. Pumping refrigerant

through the system without the typical compressor is another way of reducing electrical cost in

a data center. We can now use a fluid pump with EEV's and bypass the compressor to provide

“free” cooling. When the predesigned conditions are achieved, the compressor is cycled off and

the fluid pump is energized.

Chiller Basic Troubleshooting

Phil Rodin, Director of Education, ARPEC

Legacy North 2

This session will help those not familiar with chillers learn what is necessary to add basics into

your program. We will begin with the basic sequence for troubleshooting air and water chillers,

then move to help attendees learn what to check and what order to use as not to waste time.

The topics that will be covered in this session include: alarm signals, refrigerant operating

temperatures and pressures, water flow, oil temperature and pressure, electrical operating

measurements, pump cavitation, transducers and sensors - types of panels.

How to Incorporate Technology into Your HVACR Course (Product Showcase)

James Devoe, Cengage Learning

Forum East 4

This session will overview Cengage Learning's programs that will engage your students with 3D

immersive simulations providing the ability to practice diagnostic and troubleshooting skills in a

safe environment. The program helps to build successful technical and soft skills.
