What You Must Bring to Class:
Purpose of Class:
Provide student with the requirements to write / sit for the 3rd Class High Pressure HP Boiler Operating Engineer license exam at end of training class.
To comply with the requirements of NASOE Accredited HP Boiler Engineer learning program for boiler and boiler plant systems. The 3rd Class High Pressure HP Boiler Operating Engineer license training course complies with the learning components of NASOE.
This study course is structured to explain, apply and interpret the duties expected of a high-pressure boiler operating engineer who is also titled a 'watch engineer' or 'boiler shift engineer' in a high-pressure steam heating or steam process plant.
The course covers the science (theory) and basic math expected of a 3rd class boiler engineer as well as boiler plant operations and safety. The training class discusses instrumentation and controls as well as boiler design, boiler applications and plant auxiliaries. In addition, the 3rd Class High Pressure HP Boiler Operating Engineer training explains and discusses with illustrations the usages of 'Fuels and Combustion' as well as 'Water Treatment.' Also, this boiler training class explains and applies 'Environmental' issues in boiler plant from flue gas to water discharge.
Finally, this High-Pressure Boiler Engineer course instructs the student on recognizing the hazards of unsafe high-pressure plant operation and what to do in the event of a steam, boiler water or condensate discharge. The course is offers many good "rule of thumbs" that are readily applied to many situations.
