Seminar Overview

In most facilities, the boiler is the device with the most potential for disaster making boiler operation training a key part of any facility's overall safety. Available in both virtual and in-person, instructor-led formats, this two-day Boiler Operation, Maintenance & Safety course provides students with the practices and procedures to eliminate that potential. It offers a great overview for maintenance technicians, multi-craft tradespeople, building managers, stationary engineers, or anyone seeking to improve their boiler maintenance and operation skills. The goal of this course is to ensure the student gains a comprehensive understanding of commercial, industrial and utility boiler systems. Boiler inspections, operating controls testing and general troubleshooting tips will all be discussed. Overall, this program is designed to help maximize safety, dependability, and efficiency, thus extending boiler life, improving boiler efficiency, saving energy costs for the employer, and establishing a culture of safe work practices among the employees.

This seminar is $1,195 for both days. You can also combine it with our Air Conditioning & Refrigeration course for a comprehensive 4-day HVAC Workshop.
