This interactive CD-ROM is a preparation for anyone interested
in entering the air conditioning and refrigeration trade and is an
introduction to some of the immediate problems one will face in the
It is designed for those who *are considering going into the
refrigeration trade or trade college *wish an easily understandable
overview of HVAC/R (Heating Ventilation Air
Conditioning/Refrigeration) *wish a reference of basic refrigeration
concepts *are interested in these topics.
The Version III release contains everything from the previous
version as well as an amazing 100 interactive troubleshooting boards
with fully functional test instruments. Learn the basics and then
develop your troubleshooting skills on various types of
refrigeration and air conditioning systems.
All 100 boards utilize high and low side pressure gauges, a 9
point digital thermometer for measuring refrigerant, air, and water
temperatures and of course an Amp/Ohm/Volt meter which measures all
test points on the electrical schematics.
New for 2004: Version III troubleshooting boards now have SI Units
capability. You can toggle the temperature meter between Imperial
units ºF and SI Units ºC. The refrigerant pressures can be measured
in PSIG or kPa.
When you toggle the boards to SI mode, PT Charts appear in SI
mode for calculating superheat and subcooling. Features (Both
Versions) Interactive Graphics Sequential overlaid graphics are used
to clearly illustrate the topic at hand. Buttons allow interactive
back and forth control for logical comparisons.
Animated Graphics Animations are used to clearly demonstrate
concepts like heat flow and the mechanical workings of things like
reciprocating, scroll and rotary compressors and bimetal warp
Full Screen Graphics Many sections, especially the
troubleshooting boards use full screen graphics.

Interactive Refrigerant Side Diagnostics The relationship between
refrigerant side parameters are explored with the interactive Causes
& Effects tutorial.
Although this course starts off with the basics it lets the
participant advance to the point where complex refrigerant side
parameters are dealt with in an interactive way.
