Hands-on Electrical Wiring and Plumbing, Forced Air Gas and Electric Furnace Servicing and Preventive Maintenance Workshop


 Four-Day Hands-On Maintenance Workshop

 Hands-On Electrical Wiring & Plumbing, Forced Air Gas & Electric Furnace Servicing, and Preventive Maintenance Programs


This hands-on workshop is designed for both new and experienced personnel who are responsible for the maintenance of electrical, plumbing, and mechanical systems in both residential and commercial buildings. Information on how to safely and properly maintain and troubleshoot is presented in step-by-step detail. The topics of proper air flow, safety, and proper use of test and service equipment related to gas and electric furnace troubleshooting are demonstrated. Information on establishing and managing facility preventive maintenance programs is also covered in this workshop.

Interactive, take-home workbooks on electrical wiring and equipment maintenance, plumbing, furnace servicing, and preventive maintenance program development and management are issued to each participant for use during the workshop, and also serve as a reference manual for use later on the job.

Each participant will also be issued a professional grade, take-home digital meter (retail value $225.00) capable of accomplishing all necessary electrical, temperature, and gas pressure measurements in servicing electrical systems and fuel-burning equipment.
