Turbines (Gas/Steam)

This course will provide the participants with the knowledge needed to understand and enhance their mechanical aptitude in the area of both steam and gas turbines.

The purpose of this course will be to develop a working knowledge of the various types of turbines, as well as the different procedures and regulations associated with the operation and installation of this equipment. With the completion of this course the participants will be equipped with the knowledge required to inspect, troubleshoot, and repair turbines and their related systems.

Technicians are required to have a technical comprehension regarding turbines and the associated systems. The technicians that participate in this course will be better equipped to repair, maintain, install, and commission turbines and their associated systems, as well as increase the knowledge within their maintenance team, and increasing the safe and efficient productivity of the mechanical systems.  With further on-job training and experience the technician will be able to attend more advanced training in this area therefore enhancing the maintenance team’s capabilities and knowledge.
