FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. — In September 2016, Bosch Thermotechnology Corp. contributed a 5-ton Inverter Ducted Split System Condensing Unit and Air Handler to the HVAC laboratory at Atlantic Technical College Coconut Creek campus.

According to Brian Youngblood, Certified Master HVACR Educator (CMHE) at the Coconut Creek Campus, the IDS Air Handler and Condensing Section will be used for training HVAC students in the Florida DOE Architecture and Construction Career Cluster program, Air conditioning, Refrigeration and Heating Technology (8723000).

“We currently have 36 full-time adult students and five dual enrolled part-time high school students in the morning class and two part-time Magnet high school students in the afternoon class. Our two afternoon Magnet High School senior students just completed the installation of the equipment on a rolling/portable trainer, and they are currently building ductwork. This system will be a great tool for training future HVACR technicians, especially in this system’s modern electronic control systems,” Youngblood said.

Brian Murphy, site manager for the Bosch Ft. Lauderdale facility, added, “We are delighted to provide a modern system to Atlantic Technical College. Students of today will be installing and maintaining the HVAC systems of tomorrow.” For more information, contact Murphy at Brian.youngblood@browardschools.com.
