Air Conditioning and Refrigeration. Volume XXVI. 1975 Edition of Course of Study Outlines. Middlesex County Vocational and Technical High Schools and Middlesex County Adult Technical Schools.
The two courses of study described and outlined here are offered at Burr D. Coe Vocational and Technical High School in East Brunswick, New Jersey, for students wishing to prepare for a career in air conditioning and refrigeration. Section 1 deals with a 4-year high school course, Section 2 with a 1-year course for those who have completed high school or its equivalent. Each section includes a job description for the airconditioning and refrigeration mechanic, a course description and notes on length of course, entrance requirements, diploma, and equipment and facilities, with most of the section being devoted to a course outline which lists objectives, course content, and text and reference books for each unit. The shop practice outlines are set up in parallel columns to clarify the dual role of the teacher responsible for teaching both the tools of the trade and related trade information. Left columns list operations to be performed by the student while parallel right columns list related information required. The courses stress the basic jobs, operations, and skills needed in the servicing, repairing and installation, of air conditioning and refrigeration units. Related subject matter, consisting of mathematics, science, and drawing related to the air conditioning and refrigeration trade is an integral part of the course for high school students; for post high school students related subject matter requirements will depend upon the student's educational background.
