Recommended Prerequisites - achieving a passing score on the
ELECTRICAL, ELECTRIC HEAT and AIR CONDITIONING exams. The
Heat Pump exam requires that the student has the retained
knowledge addressed in all of the recommended prerequisite
exams. The listed competencies may repeat some of those
addressed in the recommended prerequisites. The following list of
competencies include; theory, application, function, operational
sequence, service, and installation. Troubleshooting and Problem
Solving questions involve diagnostic procedures requiring the use
of test instruments, data plate information, and wiring diagrams.
Any or all of the heat pump system components, circuits, air
distribution system, water and/or power supply may be part of
the Troubleshooting and Problem Solving question area.

Recommended Prerequisites - achieving a passing score on the
ELECTRICAL and AIR CONDITIONING exams. The Commercial Air
conditioning exam requires that the student has the retained
knowledge addressed in both of the recommended prerequisite
exams. The listed competencies may repeat some of those
addressed in the recommended prerequisites. The following list of
competencies include; theory, application, function, operational
sequence, service, and installation. Troubleshooting and Problem
Solving questions involve diagnostic procedures requiring the use
of test instruments, data plate information, and wiring diagrams.
Any or all of the refrigeration system components, circuits, air
distribution system, water and/or power supply may be part of
the Troubleshooting and Problem Solving question area.

Recommended Prerequisites - achieving a passing score on the
ELECTRICAL and AIR CONDITIONING exams. The Commercial
Refrigeration exam requires that the student has the retained
knowledge addressed in both of the recommended prerequisite
exams. The listed competencies may repeat some of those
addressed in the recommended prerequisites. The following list of
competencies include; theory, application, function, operational
sequence, service, and installation. Troubleshooting and Problem
Solving questions involve diagnostic procedures requiring the use
of test instruments, data plate information, and wiring diagrams.
