Lots of material on boilers, boiler use, boiler safety, boiler control, boiler efficiency
By (Engineer) on Jun, 27, 2019
Lots of material on boilers, boiler use, boiler safety, boiler control, boiler efficiency. Not so much on the technology or the technical workings of the boiler but more of a practical application of boiler experience. So not exactly what I was expecting - technology but much more of a broad stoke of generalities.
Very informative class

Good overview. A little repetitive in a few places, and could have touched on treatment of make-up water via RO systems or whatever.

The class started out great and then it just kept repeating the same topics over and over in different forms
By (Engineer) on Jul, 02, 2019
The class started out great and then it just kept repeating the same topics over and over in different forms. It should have been broken down into two separate classes a technical class for engineers and a separate class for building owners and operators. The class was listed as two hours but lasted well over 3 hours. Many of the maintenance overly detailed portions do not apply to engineering a steam or hot water system.
