422 DDC Bootcamp by Ron Auvil 

(18 instructional hours to be completed within 60 days) 

The vast majority of commercial buildings today utilize Direct Digital Control (DDC) systems. Any technician working in a commercial building must have a basic understanding of these systems. Technicians choosing a career path in controls must have an even greater understanding of these systems. 

 This six module series is designed for new hires and those transitioning from residential systems to commercial building HVAC and control systems. Direct Digital Control system types and configurations are presented and discussed. The course is generic and not focused on one manufacturer or type. Emphasis is put on real-world troubleshooting and operation scenarios.  It will cover common commercial HVAC systems and multiple generations of controls.

 Students will take one course/module at a time in a systematic progression. Students are enrolled as online asynchronous.  This access allows students to login at their convenience 24/7/365.  This program is NATE recognized for 18 hours of continuing education hours (CEHs) which are applicable to NATE re-certification.

 The modules making up the course are:

  • Overview of typical DDC System Today.
  • Field Controllers.
  • Inputs.
  • Outputs
  • Control Strategies and Operator Tasks.
  • Web Based control Systems.
