Global training provider, HTL Training Services, is the first organisation to offer the Gas Turbine Introduction to Operations and Inspections qualification; the only ECITB internationally recognised course.
The use of gas turbines in the power generation, petrochemical and pipeline industries is widespread. Therefore, understanding the fundamental operation and inspection will benefit maintenance technicians, supervisors, and plant operators by increasing efficiency, productivity and safety levels.
The course consists of a mixture of practical and theoretical training, studied over 5 days with HTL’s expert technical trainers. It offers delegates maximum contact time by ensuring that working groups are small.
ECITB comment: “We are delighted that HTL Training Services is now offering this ECITB qualification, an important and positive step in addressing the anticipated skills needs in the industry. HTL is the first of the ECITB provider network to offer this course, which is based on ECITB training standards. It is an extremely positive step in addressing the anticipated skills needs in the industry.”
With dedicated training facilities in Northumberland, Aberdeen and Great Yarmouth, HTL Training Services is pleased to announce the addition of this course to its extensive training portfolio, which is continuously developing to serve the growing needs of industry.
With 20 years’ international experience in both aero and industrial turbines, Andy Elrod, Lead Technical Trainer at HTL Training Services, comments: “This ECITB approved programme will provide delegates with an internationally recognised qualification. The course is an excellent introduction and foundation to gas turbine make up, operations, including maintenance requirements and control systems. This particular course originated from a customer requirement, further demonstrating HTL’s commitment to continue to listen to customer needs and deliver accredited, cost effective and applicable training, a great example of how we do things with several more courses yet to come.”
