## Refrigeration Cycle, Refrigerants and Components

Training Course

The Refrigeration Cycle, Refrigerants and Components course is intended to provide a review or refresher of the refrigeration cycle, refrigerants, and components. This is a great companion for training and/or reviewing the base knowledge needed to be successful on the EPA Section 608 examination.

This course will cover pressure, the pressure/temperature relationship, heat, basic vapor compression refrigeration cycle, refrigerants, refrigerant oils, retrofitting, refrigerant circuit components, typical operating conditions, as well as installation and maintenance.

## Structure of the Course

• Video lectures: to help you hear and understand the concepts and content being presented.

• Review questions: to test your knowledge and comprehension of what you've learned!
