Ed Janowiak, Eastern Heating and Cooling Council


Classroom 3

Manual S, like the HVAC industry, has grown in the last decade. The newest version released in the last

quarter of 2014 is very much the same as the previous version, but also very different. If you have no idea

what ACCA’s Manual S is we'll fill you in, if you want the skinny on the updates, that’s included as well. 400

CFM is not always the required high efficiency CFM.

Improving your Advisory Committee

HVACR educational programs are required to hold advisory meetings. How can educators maximize use of

these meetings to further elevate success of students, schools, and business partners? This session will

provide a template for committee makeup and engagement with work-based learning strategies to turn

routine, required meetings into an exciting arena that contributes to career-tech improvement. Participants

will also learn about the U.S. Department of Education accelerated movement towards more quality

apprenticeships and how to be more involved in this new branding of "college completion without debt."
