This course is one of four in a solar systems and energy management program developed by the Bergen County Vocational-Technical Schools to help tradespeople (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning; mechanics; plumbers; and electricians) to develop an awareness of alternate energy sources and to gain skills in the areas of solar installations and energy evaluation and management. The format of the course is a combination of lectures, visual presentations, and shop sessions. Upon completion of the course, students will be expected to understand the theory of energy management control, with a concentration in the area of heating and air conditioning. In addition, students will have been exposed to many different types of energy management control systems and will have gained the skills required to install, calibrate, and repair such systems. Following introductory materials that explain the purpose and conduct of the course, the course syllabus contains seven units. Each unit consists of an outline, objectives, note to the instructor, and/or shop session notes. The units cover the following topics: introduction and orientation, orientation to energy management controls, review of mechanical controls, electronics, controls, sensors, and total control systems. The competencies to be acquired by students are listed at the end of the syllabus. (KC)
