Johnson College is pleased to announce it has received a high efficiency combination boiler for the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Technology (HVAC) program from RJ Walker, Co. and Peerless Boilers. The PBC-34 boiler will serve as a training tool in the classroom.
Walter Wood, HVAC Program Director, said industry partnerships like the one between the College and RJ Walker and Peerless Boilers are important because of the real world experience it brings into the classroom. He said, “With such a demand in the HVAC field, these companies look to Johnson College to fill industry’s needs.” Students will be able to learn how to install and troubleshoot this type of boiler before completing the program. Michael Visbisky, HVAC Instructor, added that, “With such a changing field, it is a fantastic opportunity for our students to work on a new model of boiler. This is definitely a great new addition to our classroom lab experience and something my students and I are excited about installing and working on.”
