Modine offers comprehensive courses detailing our broad range of products, professional services and Breeze™ AccuSpec, and detailed descriptions of industry-related concepts.
The classes can be conducted in a variety of settings – at our corporate headquarters in Racine, WI; at our manufacturing locations in Buena Vista, VA or West Kingston, RI; or convenient mobile training right at your office.
Training at our Racine headquarters includes a full tour of the facility and our state-of-the-art sound lab. Students have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on training segment where they complete start-ups and troubleshooting. This experience is part of Modine’s partnership with the HVAC division of Gateway Technical College.
Our Professional Development Seminars were designed from a joint effort of the Modine HVAC Engineer team and Milwaukee School of Engineering to provide an understanding of HVAC techonolgies. The various seminars below are offered at each Innovation Tour stop or at your location by request.

Dedicated Outside Air Systems
This course covers the advantages and important features of Dedicated Outside Air Systems (DOAS). We’ll start by building an understanding with useful definitions. Then, you’ll learn about efficiency, the challenges of conditioning ventilation air and important things to consider when selecting DOAS units.
Gas-Fired Heating for Commercial Make-Up Air Equipment
We’ll begin with a review of make-up air applications. The course will then cover topics such as identifying types of room pressurization applications, design requirements for comfort versus make-up air heating, applications for direct and indirect heating, and a review of condensing indirect fired furnaces. We will also talk about opportunities for rebates on condensing furnaces.
Sound Principles of HVAC Equipment
Developed by our acoustical experts, this course begins with an overview of sound basics, including sound pressure, power and intensity. We will review different sound standards and their applications, including OSHA, ANSIS and AHRI. Finally, we’ll take a look at testing methods for sound pressure and sound power. If you choose to take this course at Modine’s world headquarters, it will include a tour of our sound lab and semi-anechoic testing chamber.
Basics of Make-up Air
This course covers the basic purposes of make-up air systems and discusses common scenarios in which make-up air could provide a solution and the different types of make-up air unit solutions. We will also cover space pressure strategies including positive, neutral and negative space pressures. Finally, we'll discuss temperature controls and other control considerations such as occupied/unoccupied mode as well as blower controls.
Venting of Unit Heaters
We'll begin with a review of the current rules and regulations for venting for a commercial or residential application. From there we'll move into specifics on the different venting criteria as it applies to commercial and residential venting of Category I, II, III and IV. Finally, we'll cover the proper techniques and materials needed to vent properly.
Sizing Water Source Heat Pumps
This course starts with a general overview of Water Source Heat Pumps and current industry standards. From there we'll move into the various performance and efficiency ratings of ground source heat pumps, including COP and EER. We'll then discuss sizing of the system and run through a ground source heat pump sizing example at both standard and installed conditions.
