Homes, office buildings, industrial plants, airplanes, cars and computer technology
all rely on complex HVAC systems to create and maintain safe, healthy and comfortable
living and working environments. Many industrial, medical, technical and commercial
processes also depend on sophisticated heating, cooling air quality and ventilation
systems. HVAC / FET technicians are problem solvers - experts who contribute to
making equipment work better, more efficiently, quicker, and less expensively. This
is the first step to acquire the skills of the HVAC / FET Journey-Technicians that
how the building as a system affects the health, safety, productivity and comfort
of the occupants. Also process, energy efficiency and profitability of the buildings
by the incorporation of these skills in how a building operates as a system. The
HVAC / FET Journey-Technicians are distinguished by promoting a holistic approach
to the building as a system. The HVAC / FET Journey-Technicians effectively free
the stranded energy and money that exists in buildings today.
