Boiler operation is complicated, especially for modern boilers that are fully automatic. Safety, efficiency, and constant generation of steam or hot water depend on the smooth operation of the boiler. Moreover, some jurisdictions have laws and rules on the boiler operation and boiler operators.

On the other hand, maintenance is performed on the boilers to increase efficiency, ensure safety, and prevent unscheduled shutdowns. A maintenance program should be established based on the type of boiler, history, and the age of the boiler.

This course has been designed to provide participants with comprehensive knowledge of boiler operation and maintenance from the Codes and Standards, in addition to the Manufacturer’s recommendations.

The operation and maintenance of power boilers and heating boilers are covered by the following Codes and Standards:

ASME Section VI – 2019, Rules for Care and Operation of Heating Boilers
ASME Section VII – 2019, Recommended Guidelines for the Care of Power Boilers

Each participant will receive a copy of the current edition of ASME B&PVC, Section VII, Recommended Guidelines for the Care of Power Boilers.
