In this course, students study the theoretical concepts of removing combustion products from appliances; principles of selecting proper venting material and size; alternative ways of configuring venting systems; and factors that effect the capacity of a venting system. Students identify and explain appliance categories based on the concepts of flue loss and vent pressure. Students are also introduced to principles of inspecting existing venting systems and calculating combustion air requirements in different types of buildings.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
