Delmar Online Training Simulation: HVAC 3.0, 2 terms (12 months) Instant Access  (ISBN-10: 1337294012 | ISBN-13: 9781337294010)

DELMAR ONLINE TRAINING SIMULATION: HVAC 3.0 is a 3-D, immersive simulation that offers a rich learning experience that mimics field performance. It challenges learners to master diagnostic and troubleshooting skills across seven pieces of HVAC equipment – Gas Furnace, Oil Furnace, Gas Boiler, Split Residential A/C, Commercial A/C, Heat Pumps, and Commercial Walk-in Freezers. Delmar Online Training Simulation: HVAC 3.0 offers approximately 200 scenarios that allow students to troubleshoot and build diagnostic and critical thinking skills. Two modes within the simulation promote incremental learning: Training Mode and Challenge Mode. Training Mode has fixed scenarios to aid in familiarizing the user with the equipment, the problem needing attention, and using the simulation. Challenge Mode has randomized scenarios within three levels: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. Both modes require learners to diagnose a fault or faults and perform the repair successfully while materials and labor costs are tracked. Soft skills are also included within the simulation.
