Comment: Question 19 in the self test questions doesn't have a correct answer. It states to size single wall vent connectors The Vent connector for the Boiler on single wall vent connector table C4 comes out to 5", the furnace sizes to 5", the HWT sizes to 3". The B vent size when I add all the inputs of the appliances and get 125000 + 95 000 + 32 000 = 252 000 total output When I use the C.4 chart common vent chart I use DP(F+N) sizes to 7"

Explain operating principles of thermocouples and thermopiles. 4. Describe operational tests performed on thermopiles and thermocouples. 5.

Comment: This ILM does not follow the course outline as Sect. 3 D.: matter density and relative density, (gas fitting ILM is used to cover Matter density and relative density course outline objectives) Some of the ILM objectives may fit elsewhere in the course outline like H, gas system components.

Comment: This Basic service ILM does not match the course outline Sect.3 e. Pressure and atmosphere. (we use a gasfitting ILM to cover this) Some of the content in this ILM maybe used for sect.3 H. although much of it needs to be updated with current technologies thermostats, blower motors, Bh venting etc.

Comment: This comment is more directed to the overall 2nd year course outline vs ILM package. course outline sect. 3 H, I, J(to some degree), K, L, M, N and Sect. 2 D, E, do not have materials that properly match the course outline. We do use a variety of ILMs that may cover a certain component of an outcome but not with any order. Students are forced to buy these ILMs that only have a few important pages for the course with the rest either duplicated or not used.
