Educators Can Upgrade HVAC Labs with New Grant

Seven educators will receive new HVAC lab tools as part of the Fluke Pressure Calibration Tool Grant Program. To qualify for the grant educators must write an essay of 500 words or less explaining how the new “ultimate” pressure calibrator would improve the current situation of pressure calibration throughout the HVAC industry, improve their lab, and how their lab exercises relate to real world applications.

A panel of qualified Fluke employees will review each submission and choose winners based on the following criteria: innovation and creativity (25%), technical skills demonstrated (25%), business value (25%), and presentation skills (25%).

The deadline to submit an application is 11:59pm PDT, June 30. Winners will be announced on July 21. For more information, visit
