DCS: Professional HVAC-R Refresher Certificate Course
Winbridge Atlantic Capital
Designed for the working technician with three (3) or more years experience and the
ability to self-motivate; this course focuses on the revision of high-temperature refrigeration
(air conditioning) systems such as package equipment, split-type, and central air
conditioning systems. Troubleshooting techniques are highlighted using simulative
exercises to increase muscle memory for skillful execution of any HVACR task.
Technicians will also be tutored in the development of soft skills for better
communication with their customers.
