Fulton has introduced two one-day training courses offering a mix of theoretical and practical operational assignments, that the company claims bridges the gap between the more expensive certified courses – those that can cost many thousands of pounds per employee – and straightforward ‘toolbox’ training.
Its Operator Routines & Maintenance course covers basic day-to-day operation and monitoring and provides employees with the knowledge required to monitor a boiler and ensure it is running efficiently and safely. It also includes training in operational procedures, daily blowdowns, and checking of water levels, alarms, etc. The course also examines the importance of correctly treated feedwater and what boiler inspectors will look for during routine insurance inspections.
The second course – Knowledge of Steam Systems – looks at the boiler system and auxiliary equipment and is aimed at more experienced operators such as technicians and engineers.
