CEU Value 0.2
Connecting with Millennials Through Technology
Presented by: Richard Benkowski of the United Association
Location: Legacy North 1
Blended learning no longer satisfies the fast-paced, head-turning, rapid-eye-moving futuristic learning process
required to engage and retain today's best and brightest applicants to our programs. Education is not like an
assembly line or manufacturing facility and no one believes that one must have a fast food model in our
approach. Set the stage to energize your students to engage and learn. What triggers learning? This
session provides the solution! This session will cover some interactive, "millennial-friendly" technologies and
methods that can be easily integrated into your delivery to strengthen the bonds among you, your students
and the material.
Troubleshooting Variable Air Volume Systems
Presented by: Ron Auvil of American Technical Publishers
Location: Legacy North 2
Variable Air Volume (VAV) systems are the most common type of mechanical system used in large
commercial buildings today. HVAC Technicians must be familiar with troubleshooting tools and techniques for
these systems. This seminar will utilize hands-on simulations to show the most common troubleshooting
techniques and scenarios.
Hands-on Approach to Psychrometrics
Presented by: Skip Krepcik “CMS” of Tidewater Community College
Location: Legacy South 1
When does 400 cfm equal one ton of refrigeration load? Almost never! Are you interested in a slightly deeper
dive into psychrometrics? I’ll bring the charts, rulers, right angles and pencils. You bring a calculator (Texas TI
-30Xa is preferred) and intellectual curiosity. Together, we will create solution schematics to find optimum
supply state points, cooling refrigeration loads and blower airflow rates.
Adding Simulations to Your Classroom
Presented by: Vanessa Myers, Craig Carter, Joe Pliss, Scott Chrysler of Cengage Learning
CollegeLocation: Legacy South 2
This session will demonstrate how to incorporate simulations into your program as we walk-through the
Delmar Online Training Simulation: HVAC 3.0 solution. Hear first hand stories of how one program achieved
success with simulations, saved money, minimized injuries, better assessed students' skills and developed
better-prepared technicians in this valuable session.
