Students in the Automation & Instrumentation Technology program at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) in Burnaby, B.C., have received a quantity of 740 Series Documenting Process Calibrators from Fluke Electronics Canada.

The instruments, worth almost $70,000, are being used by students in third- and fourth-term courses in a process measurement program led by instructor Ian Ross.

“We are very pleased and the timing was superb,” says John Schoonover, program head of the Automation & Instrumentation Technology group at BCIT. “Our older equipment was on its last legs.”

Steve Johal, the Fluke sales representative who organized the donation, said, “We feel it is important for students to be exposed to the new technology. We often hear from our industry customers that they need graduates and existing staff to be up-to-date on the latest equipment and measurement practices.”
