Summary

Gain a basic understanding of operator responsibilities related to safety, reliability and efficiency of residential, commercial and industrial boiler systems.

Workshop Description/Agenda

2-day classroom Training:

Boiler maintenance is critical because it determines the life of a boiler. Today?s attention to maintenance affects tomorrow?s bottom line. A well maintained boiler system is reliable and can last 25 years or more. However, it experiences a lot of wear and tear. We teach preventative maintenance to counteract some of the deterioration. We also discuss the common failures and how to diagnose, troubleshoot and fix them.

Gain a basic understanding of operator responsibilities related to safety, reliability and efficiency of residential, commercial and industrial boiler systems.
