CNBT 1402 Mechanical, Plumbing and Electrical Systems

A presentation of the basic mechanical, plumbing and electrical components in construction and their relationship to the overall building. Besides lectures on electrical, plumbing and HVAC, students get hands-on practice in:

  • wiring a one bedroom building
  • installing pipes for plumbing
  • install an HVAC system, including
    • learning how to safely and legally handle freon
    • building duct work
    • soldering the tubing to connect the compressor to the inside air conditioning unit.

Graduates may work as a superintendent with licensed electricians, plumbers and HVAC technicians. This class is intended to provide an overview and some hands-on practice in those trades so students understand some of what is involved in the electrical, plumbing and HVAC areas. It is NOT intended as a course to become licensed in any of those professions.

Syllabus is available on the current semester's schedule page
