Rush Services, GC employees complete class in HVAC-R
Employees from Rush Services and the facilities department at Garrett College recently completed the first class in electrical theory and application for the HVAC-R career training program offered through Continuing Education and Workforce Development at Garrett College.
With most heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC-R) service calls being electrical in nature, it is important for technicians to have a solid understanding of electrical fundamentals allowing them to develop a systematic and methodical approach to troubleshooting.
As a result, GC’s HVAC-R program includes the following topics: safety and hazard awareness, electrical fundamentals, circuits and components, motors, wiring diagrams, automated control systems, and troubleshooting.
Michael McCarthy, HVAC group manager of Beitzel Corporation, Jim Webster, retired HVAC supervisor, and John Chapman, supervisor for Closet Maid, served as instructors for the program.
