|HVAC: Heating and Air Conditioning||$180.00||5:00-9:30pm||T/Th||1/14/14-5/8/14|
|HVAC: Air Conditioning Systems||$180.00||5:00-9:30pm||T/Th||8/19/13-12/17/13|
Heating and Air Conditioning
This course covers the principles of air source and water source heat pumps. Emphasis is placed on safety, modes of operation, defrost systems, refrigerant charging, and system performance. Upon completion, students should be able to understand and analyze system performance and perform routine service procedures.
Air Conditioning Systems
This course covers the installation procedures, system operations, and maintenance of residential and light commercial comfort cooling systems. Topics include terminology, component operation, and testing and repair of equipment used to control and produce assured comfort levels. Upon completion, students should be able to use psychometrics, manufacturer specifications, and test instruments to determine proper system operation.
|Intro to Welding: MIG, TIG, Stick||201.60||7:30am-3:30pm||M/T and/or and Sa *Students may attend any or all of the days this class meets.||
|Intro to Welding: MIG, TIG, Stick||201.60||6:00pm-10:00pm||M/T/W (*Students also may attend the Saturday class to no additional fee.)||
This course is designed to teach the fundamentals of welding and cutting. This course covers safety, oxy-acetylene welding, torch cutting, arc welding, MIG and TIG welding. By the end of the course students will have entry-level knowledge of the welding process and qualify to take the Certification Preparation course.
|Intermediate Welding||201.60||7:30am-3:30pm||M/T and/or and Sa *Students may attend any or all of the days this class meets.||
|Intermediate Welding||201.60||6:00pm-10:00pm||M/T/W (*Students also may attend the Saturday class to no additional fee.)||9/8/14-12/6/14|
This course is designed to enhance the Welding skills in MIG and/or TIG as well as teach plasma-arc cutting, air carbon arc cutting, and shielded metal arc. Students will have the flexibility to choose the area or skills to focus. Students in this class either should be experienced Welders seeking additional experience and training or have completed the Fundamentals of Welding course. Some students preparing for a certification may opt to take this class in preparation for the certifications.
|Welding Certification Preparation||WLD3106-||$201.60||8:00am-4:00pm||Sa||6/2/14-8/16/14|
This course is designed to prepare students for the American Welding Society's welding certification. This is open only to experienced students that either have successfully completed the MCC Introduction to Welding course or pass the instructor's skill testing on the first day of class. Students unable to pass the pretest will be required to take the Introduction to Welding.
