Bosch Thermotechnology Corp. in Fort Lauderdale has contributed a 5-ton Inverter Ducted Split System Condensing Unit and Air Handler (IDS system heat pump) to the HVAC laboratory at Atlantic Technical College Coconut Creek campus. With the encouragement of Ft. Lauderdale Site Manager, Brian Murphy, Bosch Technical Service Associate, Omar Mcintosh, and Warranty Administrator, Maryna Kamkova, helped arrange shipment and installation of the units with ATC’s HVACR Educator Brian Youngblood and Assistant Principal John Felser.
IDS system heat pump is a great resource for the lab
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 5 dual enrolled part time high school students (from outside schools) in the morning class and 2 part time Magnet high school students (from our high school) in the afternoon class. Our 2 afternoon Magnet High School senior students have completed the installation of the equipment on a rolling/portable trainer, and they are currently building ductwork. This system will be a great tool in our classroom for training future HVAC/R technicians, especially electronic control systems.”
Brian Murphy, site manager for Bosch Ft. Lauderdale facility, remarks “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.”
