Course Descriptions: Show All | Hide All
The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to the various types of residential heating systems. Areas and concepts covered include combustion theory, basic air distribution, furnace construction, filters, humidifiers, installation techniques, and maintenance procedures.
The HVACR course will introduce students to the environmental function control of temperature, moisture content, air quality and air circulation in a conditioned space. Our labs allow the learner to view and examine various types of HVACR systems with respect to installation, components, and characteristics.
This course presents the basic electrical characteristics, reading and developing circuit graphics, test equipment, controls and circuit application.
This course expands on the basic electrical knowledge gained in HCR-455 and introduces students to electrical troubleshooting.
This course is designed to present basic facts of arithmetic including whole numbers, fractions, decimals, powers, roots, English and metric measurement, ratio-proportion, percents, introduction to algebra, introduction to geometry, and applied statistics. Instruction includes use of scientific hand-held calculators and emphasis placed on critical thinking, problem solving skills.
This course presents elements of professional verbal and written communication. In this course, students will go through the real world hypothetical process of locating and applying for a job, then practicing communication skills needed while at work.
To provide experiences in the operation, layout, selection, and troubleshooting of residential and light commercial boilers.
This course is designed to introduce students to new and alternative air conditioning equipment.
This course focuses on all thing's refrigeration, from small dehumidifiers to large commercial refrigeration. In this course the students will also study for and take the EPA 608 refrigeration licensing exam.
To provide a working knowledge of electrical controls, sealed system components, troubleshooting, and maintenance on air conditioners.
This course provides the students a capstone opportunity to apply the theory to practice on the equipment in the HVACR lab to gain entry level proficiency in service and repair.
This course is a study of electronic controls and circuitry systems for H.V.A.C.R.
This course provides on-the-job training giving the student experience and practical application of the competencies learned in the air conditioning portion of the Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Program. The internship is coordinated by the college instructor and supervised by an industry professional at the work site.
This course can be taken for 1–4 credits, 64–256 co-op hours.
This course will prepare the student for College Algebra and Trigonometry or other equivalent course work. Topics include properties of real numbers, linear and quadratic equations, graphs of polynomial functions, systems of equations, polynomial and rational expressions, inequalities, integral and rational exponents, radicals, and complex numbers.
This is a one semester, liberal arts mathematics course that satisfies the minimum general education requirement for math. The course is designed to impart math skills which are helpful in everyday life as well as to expose students to areas of mathematics they may not have seen before. Topics include problem-solving skills, set theory, algebra, consumer mathematics, probability, and statistics. Other topics may be included.
Prerequisite(s): A minimum grade of D- in MAT-063 or appropriate placement score.
This course provides an intensified study of algebraic techniques and prepares students for future study in mathematics. The central theme is the concept of functions, their properties, graphs and applications. Functions studied include polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic.
Prerequisite(s): A minimum grade of C- in MAT-102 or equivalent placement score.
This one-semester pre-calculus course is intended for the student with a solid algebra background who intends to take calculus. It is also beneficial (but not required) for the student to have a background in trigonometry. The course will emphasize functions using an analytical, numerical, and graphical approach. The student will study linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions along with their applications.
Prerequisite(s): Appropriate Placement Test Scores: ACT Math Score of 25 OR Compass Score of 51-100 in the College Algebra Domain or 31-50 in the Trigonometry Domain.
The second course of a two-semester pre-calculus sequence. Topics include trigonometry and applications, vectors, analytic geometry, and polar and parametric equations.
Prerequisite(s): A minimum grade of C- in MAT-121 or equivalent placement score.
This course is a study of descriptive statistics including graphical representation, central tendency, correlation and regression, intuitive treatment of probability and inferential statistics including hypothesis testing.
The first in a calculus sequence, this course covers topics including functions and their graphs, limits, derivatives, applications of the derivative, and integrals.
Prerequisite(s): A minimum grade of C- in MAT-128 or MAT-134 or appropriate placement scores (ACT: 27; COMPASS TRIGONOMETRY: 51-100).
A continuation of MAT-210, this course covers topics including integration techniques, applications of integration, infinite series, conic sections, parametric and polar equations.
Prerequisite(s): A minimum grade of C- in MAT-210.
This course covers topics including integration and differentiation techniques related to vectors, vector-valued functions, functions of several variables, multiple integration, and vector analysis.
