Course includes lesson plans, instructor PowerPoints, student guides, and structured OJT books with suggested tasks. OS customizes these materials to incorporate your equipment specific training needs to ensure technicians are prepared to maintain equipment.


Simulator-Based Courses for Console Operator Training

These process specific courses target operators transitioning from the field to the console. Led by an experienced instructor, the course uses a blended approach of discussion, presentation and hands-on simulator-based exercises.

  • Boiler Operations
  • Furnace
  • Compressor
  • Binary Distillation
  • Multi-Draw Distillation

Course materials include a student guide, job-aids, and use of a dynamic process simulator while in class.


Maintenance Training

OS specializes in creating customized maintenance training programs and materials based on your site's specific environment, challenges and equipment. Our experienced team of maintenance craft training experts will first research your group's current knowledge and skills for a thorough understanding of issues or gaps which need attention. Then, they will design a strategy that combines education and hands-on performance exercises to meet your group's training requirements. They'll even tailor the training to incorporate your specific maintenance procedures and company policies.
