    We've discussed this here before.

    I understand that Refrigeration is supposed to be a hard one, but I don't know any of the others well enough to stand half of a change passing one.

    Commercial Air Conditioning
    Commercial Refrigeration
    Controls
    Domestic Service
    Dynamic Compression
    Heating
    Heat Pump
    HVACR Electrical

    Commercial AC probably includes VAV/VVT stuff and chilled water. Never touched the stuff. Also that has psychrometrics on it and that sort of math scares the bejabbers out of me.

    Controls Not sure what that encompasses. I might have half of a chance at it. Maybe I can try to take 2 specialists at once....

    Domestic Service Never done it.

    Dynamic Compression WTF is that?

    Heating Probably involve combustion analysis stuff and boilers. Again, stuff I don't know.

    Heat pump I friggen HATE heat pumps. They drive me batty.

    HVACR Electrical Not confident enough of my electrical knowledge to attempt this one.
