Would have liked to hear more about industrial boilers versus hvac boilers

Would have liked to hear more about industrial boilers versus hvac boilers. Also felt a lot of information was repeated the class could have either been shortened or gone in more depth in the same timeframe.

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.
