Stationary Firer

Stationary Firer trains workers for firer positions in a steam or electric power plant.

Trains workers for firer positions in a steam or electric power plant.

Students start their program with an overview of basic industrial math, various types of industrial measurements, and an overview of steam generator types. The curriculum expands to include to mechanical maintenance and the operation, maintenance, and testing of boiler firers.

In an effort to better prepare your employees for the working world, the courseware was developed to meet the educational subject requirements set forth in the test for the Black Seal License. Trainees who complete the program will be able to:
