Mini-Splits: The Future of HVAC is Here

John Bart, Mitsubishi


Classroom 1

The HVACR industry is rapidly changing. However, no other inventions have changed the industry the way

that ductless HVAC / Mini-Split Systems have. As such, it is imperative that technicians understand the

features and benefits of this technology to prepare them for the industry of today and tomorrow.

Taking a System Approach to Compressor Troubleshooting

Jamie Kitchen, Danfoss


Classroom 2

This session will focus on the benefits of taking a broader perspective when trouble shooting compressors

that when done correctly, can reveal otherwise hidden issues that can affect compressor performance and

longevity. The goal is to avoid the trap of feeling the need to blindly 'replace or adjust' without first finding

out what went wrong and how to ensure it does not happen again.

Advances in Wi-Fi and Cloud Technologies

Tim Burke, White Rodgers


Classroom 3

This session will cover the newest innovations and changes in Wi-Fi and Cloud Technologies and their impact

on the HVAC industry. Attendees will gain a better appreciation of the InT (Internet of Things) and how this

applies to new applications in the HVAC industry that students and teachers need to be cognizant of.

Campus as a Living Lab: New Opportunities for HVACR Education

Larry Chang, Building Efficiency for a Sustainable Tomorrow (BEST) Center and Jeryll

McWhorter, Georgia Piedmont Technical College


Classroom 4

This session will discuss the living lab and how to incorporate one into your curriculum. The living lab

provides opportunities for students to gain real-world experiences on equipment often not available in the

classroom. It exposes them to real world situations and opportunities to learn about building performance

which will make the program come to life and more engaging for the students. Examples from different

colleges will be highlighted to illustrate varying levels of difficulty and skills developed. Then a discussion and

brainstorming session will follow so attendees can develop ideas to take home to their colleges.
