Instructor comments:

This course covers the theory and application of HVAC motors and control devices. We will discuss electrical circuits, motors, contactors, relays, overloads, electric control devices, wiring diagrams, schematics, and procedures for troubleshooting, and we will wire numerous battery-powered circuits. Find the syllabus hereor by clicking on content above. 

In order to provide hands-on electrical practice in a remote learning environment, I will be assigning self-directed, battery-powered labs to be completed at home. The materials below will be necessary to complete the labs, and you will need them by the second class session.

These materials are unfortunately not available from the bookstore. They should cost about $30 total. The motors kit is only available from Amazon, but most other items are readily available elsewhere, and you may substitute from your own tools as you see fit. If you have any questions about the materials for this class please email me at skyler.stearns@pcc.edu.
