Preparation Correspondence Course for 3rd Class Gas Turbine Engineer / Combustion Turbine Operating Engineer:

This Preparation Correspondence Course prepares student to pass the National Association of Stationary Operating Engineer's 3rd Class Gas Turbine National License Exam.

A Third Class Simple (Brayton) Cycle Combustion Turbine (SCCT) Gas Turbine Engineer is intended for a non-supervisory as a Operator / Shift Engineer role in the power generating utilizing the Brayton process of generating electricity or driving compressor.

With the increase of CHP or Combines Heating and Power facilities gas turbines are normally the first choice from sizes ranging from small micro turbines up to gas turbines in the mega-watts range. OEM training is not licensing and does not cover the facility.

Once the student successfully completes this preparation course, the School will mail the license application to the student where the student will return the completed and signed license application for processing by the School. The School will arrange for the applicant to have a proctor supervise the license exam in their area.

Gas Turbine Generator Gas Turbine / Combustion Turbine GeneratorThe fees for the Third-Class Gas Turbine / Combustion Turbine Operating Engineer License are listed in the License Application, and engineers can apply for a reciprocal license as well, which is based on holding a license from recognized State, Municipal, Federal and Third-Party licensing entities.


The qualifications to sit for examination are: the student must have documented 6-months of experience in Gas Turbine / Combustion Turbine Plant Operations.
