The intent of this series of MS Power Point presentations (over 700 slides) is to provide instructors with varying levels of experience the building blocks to teach the residential HVAC design process over a wide variety of time frames.

This material could be used by time-strapped instructors familiar with Manual J7 who need course material to transition to the new Manual J8AE. This material provides the basic building blocks for a full program. These presentations would make an excellent supplement to an existing course. The concepts explained in these slideshows could round out the repertoire of a seasoned instructor. The individual presentations may also provide a new perspective or a fresh way of explaining the residential HVAC system design process The slideshows can also help if you have been teaching ACCA materials and just need some new concepts to augment your training program.

This step-by-step training material can be opened, modified, adapted, or changed to meet your needs. It can be pared down to a condensed overview of the residential HVAC system design process or it could be used as is for a full week of training. An instructor could also expand this curriculum into a full semester or properly augmented with supplemental information, case studies or additional examples, this material could cover a full school year. However you decide to use this CD we trust that it will provide assistance as you teach.
