This workshop includes some of the primary and advanced fundamentals of oil heat training for technicians. We spend a full day mixed with discussion and hands-on activity in the lab. Tech/Students will be shown the proper way to make adjustments to oil burners and learn the affects those adjustments have on the system as it relates to proper combustion and safe operation, this includes, Beckett, Carlin and Riello Oil Burners. We will take a deep dive into the theory and understanding of combustion.

We will also cover basic and advanced wiring and troubleshooting both in discussion and on equipment and simulators in lab and finally techs will have the opportunity to troubleshoot/diagnose systems in the lab that will have genuine faults that have been created by our instructor. Tech/Students will be provided with plenty of material to take with them for use in their activities in the field.

Technicians who have experience servicing HVAC equipment but have limited background working on oil equipment are ideal candidates for this class. This training also serves as a great resource for oil heat technicians who completed the NORA Bronze Two Week Basic Oil Heat Program in the past but could use a refresher training.

Registration fees include the following complimentary items:
Lunch is provided for attendees
