Teaching Techs to Read Wiring Diagrams
Brynn Cooksey Sr CEM, CMS, RCT, CESC
This course will outline some key techniques to teach your students how to read wiring diagrams.
Electrical troubleshooting is the most important skill that a HVACR service technician can obtain. It's a known fact that most HVACR malfunctions are electrical in nature (roughly 70-80% of service calls).
Sadly, electrical troubleshooting and wire diagram usage is a poorly developed skill which leads to expensive parts changing and costly callbacks.
This course will focus on helping technicians understand how to read and utilize wiring diagrams and how faculty and staff should incorporate wire diagram skills into each and every training class that you have in your curriculum.
