Value Added Activities in the HVAC/R Department

On Feb 24th thirty seven Humber students in the three year Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Technology program participated in a new technology product training workshop and successfully gained manufacturer certification.

Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing (“CSST”) is a modern answer to traditional rigid steel piping/tubing materials used in natural gas and propane distribution systems. Due to its increased safety factor, ease of installation, and smaller inventory requirements “CSST” has been gaining popularity with many HVAC contractors.

Gastite Manufacturer’s Representative Chris Battersby gave a very informative workshop regarding where CSST makes sense and how it can benefit certain situations where compliance with the gas code book may be difficult using traditional piping materials. The workshop culminated in an exam to gain manufacturer certification.

HVAC Professor Alan Gaunt: “I want to make sure we give our students every advantage possible so they have a solid foundation on which to build their careers. Arranging for outside training and certifications is just one of the many value added things we do in our Program and the students (and prospective employers) absolutely love it. It’s not unusual to have several of my students dealing with multiple job offers well before graduation.”
