Basic Propane Appliance Service/Troubleshooting (4.5) - 5 Days

Aug 13, 2018 - Aug 17, 2018
Freehold, NJ

The new 4.5 Vapor Distribution Class covers servicing, troubleshooting, and repairing basic propane appliances.  It is the most comprehensive propane class ever produced in respect to CETP classes. The class combines electrical troubleshooting, appliance gas regulation, appliance combustion principles, burners, complete and incomplete combustion, carbon monoxide testing and heat exchanger inspection.  Students will have classroom instruction and then practical hands on troubleshooting for each of the sections completed.  The course also covers gas orifices and flow tests, lockup tests, differential pressure tests and more.  The five day class can be completed after taking basic principles and practices but the basic electrical class is very helpful in respect to being prepared to take this class.    Many experienced propane industry workers have taken the old 7.0 appliance service class; the 7.0 class will also work as good primer for completing the new 4.5 Appliance Trouble shooting class.
