The class is built in modules (three modules, containing 28 separate lesson units in all) that include video and audio presentations from popular HVACR technical trainer, Jack Rise.
You can move through the class modules at your own pace. While time spent taking the class will vary from student to student, the class contains 18 hours of video, plus 28 assessments and a final exam. We expect the typical learner to complete the class in 22-25 hours plus individual study time.
The class must be successfully completed within 180 days of enrollment.
- In the Manual N sessions you will learn how to accurately size the proper commercial equipment for your particular application and geographic region of the country.
In the Manual Q sessions you will learn four different design methodologies for ducted distribution systems to extract the proper amount of air out of the equipment and deliver it to the areas to be heated and/or cooled in a commercial application.
The ACCA Standard 5 course offers instruction on an ANSI Standard (ANSI/ACCA 5 QI - 2010). Standard 5 is required for Energy Star v3 compliance. In addition, you will gain a peek at some really helpful software that can dramatically minimize the time required to perform all of the required calculations and system design, without sacrificing quality or accuracy.
At the end of each unit (28 in total) you will be asked to complete an assessment. After completing all of the module assessments (with a passing score), you will be shown a link to complete the final exam. When you pass the exam, you will gain access to a printable certificate proving successful completion of the class.
The certificate expires in five years, to ensure that certificate holders keep up to date on changing industry requirements.
ACCA will maintain your transcript as proof of your credentials.
