This 8-hour course is specifically designed for HVAC technicians in Kentucky. It will satisfy all of the continuing education requirements needed for renewal!
In the course, we’ll start by reviewing the history of the International Mechanical Code, before we dive into the most important changes and additions to the code.
In Chapter 8, we will discuss the new regulations for chimneys and vents - including design, construction, repair and more. Chapter 9 continues to review the code changes to requirements for fireplaces, solid fuel-burning equipment, and related appliances.
Chapter 10 will focus on equipment like boilers, water heaters, and pressure valves, and the revisions to the regulations for proper installation. Chapter 11 addresses refrigeration, including the hazardous nature of certain refrigerants and new rules for them. We’ll talk about zeotropic and azeotropic types of refrigerants.
In Chapter 12, we will cover hydronic piping required for use in climate controls systems, as well as proper construction, installation, and maintenance of these systems. Current regulations for fuel oil storage and piping systems will be reviewed in Chapter 13.
In Chapter 14, we will cover photovoltaic systems used to harness solar energy. This includes the required access and protections necessary when working with these systems. Finally, Chapter 15 lists the standards which are referenced throughout the codebook, providing a central location for reference. We’ll review the most important changes made here as well, before we move on to the second section of our course: business contracts.
In our discussion of business contracts, we’ll talk about some basic contract law that you’ll need to understand when using business contracts. This includes a review of case law, which is formed by the decisions of courts on past cases.
