In partnership with Trane, Gustave A. Larson recently helped the Utah Davis Technical College HVACR program add a new high-tech addition to their training lab. The lab at Davis Tech has needed some updating for quite some time. The program has never been able to acquire a heat pump or any communicating or even current production units. Larson was able to help them acquire a new top-of-the-line Trane variable speed heat pump and furnace with new communicating controls to help train the rising generation of technicians.
Dan Holland (of Larson subsidiary APS) and Ethan Smith (Larson Salt Lake City branch) have been involved with the Davis Technical College program for over 10 years, Dan as a night instructor and Ethan on the advisory committee. Both have worked to improve the program by building trainers and developing training courses and curriculum in the past and are excited to continue to do so with this new top-of-the-line equipment.
In the coming weeks, the students will install and commission the new system in their lab and begin to learn the ins and outs of heat pump systems. With the ever-rising popularity of heat pumps, it is important to expose new technicians to them in school before they get to the field, and this is the first time the school will have the ability to do any hands-on training on them. Davis Technical College thanks all the Larson team members that have worked to make this possible.
