Overview

DELMAR ONLINE TRAINING SIMULATION: HVAC 3.0 is a 3-D, immersive simulation that offers a rich learning experience that mimics field performance. It challenges learners to master diagnostic and troubleshooting skills across seven pieces of HVAC equipment – Gas Furnace, Oil Furnace, Gas Boiler, Split Residential A/C, Commercial A/C, Heat Pumps, and Commercial Walk-in Freezers. Delmar Online Training Simulation: HVAC 3.0 offers approximately 200 scenarios that allow students to troubleshoot and build diagnostic and critical thinking skills. Two modes within the simulation promote incremental learning: Training Mode and Challenge Mode. Training Mode has fixed scenarios to aid in familiarizing the user with the equipment, the problem needing attention, and using the simulation. Challenge Mode has randomized scenarios within three levels: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. Both modes require learners to diagnose a fault or faults and perform the repair successfully while materials and labor costs are tracked. Soft skills are also included within the simulation.

Interplay Learning,

Interplay Learning develops award-winning, 3D interactive simulation training and testing applications for the professional trades. Delivered over the web, Interplay’s products are immersive and lifelike, promoting knowledge retention, improved performance, and decreased time to competency.
  • Users can opt-in to the NEW Carrier Workforce Connection portal, so their contact information is visible to dealers seeking new employees.
  • NEW, easy-to-follow troubleshooting charts present information in a linear format, which aides process understanding.
  • Now compatible with all browsers and iOS and Android tablets for an enhanced and more flexible learning experience.
  • Training Mode and Challenge Mode. Training Mode has fixed scenarios to aid in familiarizing the user with the equipment, the problem needing attention, and the capabilities of the simulation.
  • The enhanced gradebook makes identifying student’s strengths and weaknesses easy by equipment type.
  • A NEW link out Interplay’s MfgU featuring Carrier’s Variable Speed Heat Pump.
  • Now includes 23 Commercial Walk-in Freezer troubleshooting scenarios, propelling the total number of scenarios in the simulation to more than 200.
  • The Delmar Online Training Simulation: Electricity for HVAC is now integrated into the Delmar Online Training Simulation: HVAC 3.0 creating a more robust training experience covering electrical and mechanical faults.
  • Nearly 30 Instructional videos lead by HVAC Instructor, Tim Smith, from Hudson Valley Community College guide users through the proper steps to address different troubleshooting scenarios.
  • The revised user interface streamlines navigation, improves content understanding and retention and enhances the user experience.
  • The improved and streamlined tutorial mode familiarizes users with the simulation by guiding them through the key components of the simulation.
  • The enhanced Training Mode features questions that help users quickly identify equipment issues.
  • It challenges learners to master diagnostic and troubleshooting skills across seven pieces of HVAC equipment found in the industry—Gas Furnace, Oil Furnace, Gas Boiler, Split Residential A/C, Commercial A/C, Heat Pumps, and Commercial Walk-in Freezers.
  • HVAC 3.0 offers approximately 200 scenarios that allow students to troubleshoot and build diagnostic and critical thinking skills.
  • Two modes within the simulation promote incremental learning: Training Mode and Challenge Mode. Training Mode has fixed scenarios to aid in familiarizing the user with the equipment, and Challenge Mode requires the learner to diagnose and resolve unknown faults for each piece of equipment.
