Dallas County Community Coll. District, TX.
Based on a survey of high school programs and courses in the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD), this articulated program is designed to prepare students for entry-level employment in the air conditioning and refrigeration industry, including residential and commercial air conditioning and commercial refrigeration. The skills and knowledge needed to install, repair, and maintain the equipment in these areas are presented. These courses may be used by DCCCD students to receive a certificate or be applied toward an Associate in Applied Arts and Sciences degree. The manual contains five first-year courses: fundamentals of electricity, advanced electrical circuits, basic principles of refrigeration, vapor compression systems, and pipefitting procedures. Each course is divided into units, and each unit contains the competencies required in the area. Each competency is followed by its criteria, the specific way achievement of that competency is to be measured. Safety tests with answer keys are included in the units as needed. A blank student profile form completes the packet. (KC)
