Learning Never Ends Here

Posted by Jaclyn Thomas on Monday, July 3, 2017

Here at Peterman we never stop training our employees. One of our latest training classes was an electric diagnostic training class ran by our Service Manager, Bill Goul.  This class taught our HVAC technicians about parallel and series circuits, understanding wiring diagrams & trouble shooting electric circuits.


All the electric components of a heating and cooling system were simulated on this board….. Then sabotaged!! The technicians had to go through the wiring diagrams to prove it was wired correctly, then use their volt, ohm and amp meter to find out why the unit would not work. When all the light bulbs came on, the system was fixed and running.  Success!

We strongly believe in continued learning to keep our technicians up-to-date and make sure we have the best technicians out there!
