GCAP CoolCast: Garden City Ammonia Program

Author Archive

New Training Scholorships Available

by on Sep.28, 2017, under News

The Garden City Ammonia Program’s Boiler Division would like to announce the addition of  boiler program scholarships in honor of Bacharach Incorporated, one of GCAP’s strategic partners. The scholarships may be awarded to any individual considering a career in the boiler industry. If you know of someone right out of school, or possibly a veteran, who you feel is deserving of this coveted scholarship, please notify GCAP’s corporate office to apply. Bacharach Incorporated has been a friend and partner of GCAP for years and has donated equipment to the school on several different occasions. Without companies like Bacharach Incorporated, it would be much more difficult for GCAP to deliver the quality product we are known for in the industry. The flue gas analyzers donated by Bacharach Incorporated allows the GCAP Boiler II program options for training that most other schools simply can’t match. Thank you Bacharach Incorporated for your gracious donations to GCAP’s success and we look forward to partnering with you for many years to come.

Below Jim Burnette and Tate Minchew (Boiler Instructors @ GCAP) award Jim of Bacharach a plaque for the dedication to GCAP and training.
