ENCINO, Calif., Aug. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- UEI College Encino campus prides themselves in supporting students and the community by providing additional knowledge about hands-on career-training opportunities for the San Fernando Valley. Each month we host program spotlights for current and prospective students to gain insight on programs at UEI College.
July's spotlighted program was the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) program. Prospective students learned more about the HVAC program through four presentations put on by UEI College HVAC students. These students spoke about specific HVAC skills, giving a glimpse into the hands-on training program.
The four presentations that took place included:
- Overview of the Air Conditioning Unit – HVAC students explained the proper workings of a central AC system including the heating and cooling cycle
- Brazing – Students presented the safe and proper procedures of brazing together both piping and plumbing
- Blower Fan Inspection and Operation – Students shared aspects of troubleshooting an HVAC unit
- Hand Tools Used in HVAC – Students explained the different types of tools and how they are used in the HVAC industry
Five HVAC Alumni graduates returned to the campus and shared their experience at UEI College, the importance of attendance in the program and their day-to-day routines in the HVAC field with current and prospective students. UEI College alumni were proud to be able to talk about their current careers and how the Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning program prepared them for the positions they are in now.
