Boiler Installation & Commissioning

Purpose of Seminar:

Being able to service your own boiler is one thing. Being able to do it safely is another. This seminar is designed to teach building and facility maintenance personnel to do both. After attending this seminar you will be able to reduce the need for outside service contractors, while at the same time increase your confidence and comfort level in operating and maintaining your own boilers. And because we know time is money, this seminar is designed to have immediate impact! We approach our students as if they were our own employees. We give them real world, practical knowledge they can use today. And they are expected to go back to their workplace and immediately apply what they have learned. Now that's "Real World" training!

* Boiler operating license requirements vary by state and locality. While this boiler training course is not intended to counter or replace these various requirements, it can help students prepare for licensing exams, meet continuing education requirements, or provide increased maintenance and safety knowledge for already licensed or approved individuals. Please check with your local licensing authorities to understand licensing laws that may affect you.

Who should take this course?
