Gas Help

Jeff_61 Member Posts: 2
I have worked as an oil tech for 2 yrs., and I just started working at a plumbing/heating company. If anyboby could help me, I'm trying to find any information or links online regarding gas tech? I have checked out most of the major forums, I'm looking for sites geared more to training with illustrations. Thanks for the help!

    Did you try The Petersen school, I went there and they had lots of material geared towards us oil guys. The AGA had a great book with vavles and controls, was very informative and great troubleshooting guide. I bought an updated book 5 years ago. I t really helped with the electronic controls
    as they have different flashing codes and wiring.
    Is this what your after, or something else?

    I appreciate the post, I've attended class at Peterson for refrigeration, and it was a very good school. But with winter coming and working 60-70 hours a week, school just isn't a option. I'm trying to find links, books, videos, or online training that I can us late at night, weekends or whenever I can fit it in. Thanks for any information?

    Where are you located?

    There are quite a few great sources right here at your fingertips, but "hands on" is definately the way to go. Timmie McElwain runs the Gas Training Center in R.I. and is a great teacher. He also has a "sub-board" at Oil Tech Talk, Alan Mercurios site. Check it out. I'm sure that Tim has a training schedule posted on his piece of the site, but he's on sabatical right now and will resume his training at The GTC, and "on the road" within the next few months. GO for it! Like I said, he's a great instructor, and LOVES working with oil guys....We already know about fire, and that makes teaching us so much easier. Chris
