NATE Electrical Exam Survival, Training and Prep

$290.00

This program trains students in each subject area so they can have a sustained career, learn more effectively, and become valued employees. NATE Electrical helps you to survive the inadequacies of poor training. Of particular note are the weaknesses in electricity among technicians and the need for complex electrical installation and diagnosis skills in today’s market. After completing this program, students can sit for the NATE CHP-5 Electrical exam.

As an HVAC technician, it is crucial to have a basic understanding of electrical fundamentals. This knowledge and competency will allow you to safely and effectively install, maintain, and repair HVAC systems. Besides the science fundamentals of electricity, the National Electrical Code (NEC) is the standard that governs the installation of electrical systems. Being familiar with the NEC is vital as it will guide safe installations.

Course 1 – Electrical (Electrical) Fundamentals

As an HVAC technician, it is crucial to have a basic understanding of electrical fundamentals. This knowledge and competency will allow you to safely and effectively install, maintain, and repair HVAC systems. Besides the science fundamentals of electricity, the National Electrical Code (NEC) is the standard that governs the installation of electrical systems. Being familiar with the NEC is vital as it will guide safe installations.

We’ve highlighted certain focus areas of your training in this course to give you an idea of the journey that you’re setting out upon.

Key concepts abound in this course, as electricity is not a simple subject!

A Few Of the Key Concepts You will learn:

  • Ohm’s Law states that the current through a conductor is proportional to its voltage.
  • Series and parallel circuits: A series circuit is one where the components are connected one after the other, while a parallel circuit has components that are connected side by side.
  • AC and DC circuits: AC circuits alternate the current direction, while DC circuits have a constant current flow.
  • Transformers: These devices convert AC currents of one voltage to another voltage.
  • Relays: These are switches that are activated by an electromagnet.
  • Measurements of electric power: This includes watts, volts, and amps.
  • The volt is the unit of measurement for electric potential difference, the amp is the unit of electric current, and the watt is the unit of power.

The Elements of Utility Power Distribution Systems

  • The service entrance is where the utility company’s electricity comes into a building.
  • The meter is used to measure the amount of electricity that is used.
  • The main breaker is a large switch that controls the flow of electricity to the rest of the building.
  • Circuit breakers protect the wiring in a building from excessive current.
  • The service drop is the wire that carries electricity from the utility company’s power lines to the building.
  • The service lateral is the wire that carries electricity from the main breaker to the individual circuits in a building.
  • Ampacity measures how much current a wire can carry without overheating.
  • Alternative power sources such as solar and wind power are becoming more popular, and HVAC technicians should be familiar with these systems. Solar power systems use photovoltaic panels to convert sunlight into electricity, while wind power systems use turbines to generate electricity from the wind.

 Specific subjects explored are as follows.

  • Line Power Sources and Handling
  • Short Circuits and Overloaded Circuits
  • Earth Grounding
  • Circuit Breakers and Fuses
  • Testing Electrical Systems
  • Electric Motors
  • Fundamental Electricity Laws and Units
  • Wiring Schematics
  • Series and Parallel Circuits

 

 

Course 2 – HVAC Electrical Controls

HVAC Systems are built with a massive range of applications. The specific application of any given control varies between manufacturers; however, the design and purpose of most of the system electrical controls built into residential and light commercial systems cannot, by design, vary. The specific programming of system control boards is subject to a sequence of operations.

The above sounds like a firmly factual statement, but sadly it is not. Certain manufacturers have developed proprietary compressors; however, the electric motor and controls application is standard to available types.

The primary coverage topics are listed below.

  • Electric Motor application and advancements
  • Electric Motor Start Devices
  • Fossil Fuel Furnace Electrical Components
  • Heat Pump Components
  • Indoor Thermostats, Electronic and Mechanical
  • Mini Split Electrical Controls
  • Pilot Duty and Definite Purpose Relays
  • System Control Boards
  • System Temperature Controls
  • And more, including the following:
  • Low Ambient and Low-Pressure Controls
  • High-Pressure Control
  • Electric Heat Sequencers
  • Zone Motor Controls
