The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the system specifications, installation, operation, configuration, theory and maintenance, associated components and sub-systems of the Multicare Platinum.

Primary emphasis of the course is preventive maintenance/calibration of the system with some system troubleshooting included. Manuals, Schematics and Technical Bulletins are provided to the students to aid in the maintenance and installation of the product. Testing is provided throughout the program to evaluate and review the students understanding. Students who satisfactorily complete the program will be awarded a certificate of completion. For technicians certified by the International Certification Commission (ICC), this course can be submitted for 2.5 continuing practice points towards the certification renewal requirements (under Category I – Courses).
