Understanding Mechanical Systems

Are you a professional new to the mechanical industry? Are you responsible for coordinating work for mechanical contractors? This course is excellent for those who want to gain a basic understanding of mechanical systems.

Explore the plumbing system, including components and design principles of the sanitary, storm, and domestic water systems. Discuss the common types of HVAC systems in buildings and discuss the components and design elements of heating, ventilation, and cooling systems that provide a comfortable and safe environment.
