The course is broadly designed to incorporate all issues related to boilers starting with selecting the best design aspects, installation, and operation and boiler maintenance. Other issues are included within the course such as legal requirements and regulations, environmental and safety aspects, energy consumption, boiler efficiency and operating a treatment plant.


The overall objective of this course is to make the recipient more knowledgeable of what a boiler is and how boiler design, operates and what ancillary equipment is required to support its operation.

Upon the successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:-

  • Apply their knowledge of the different boiler chemical treatment technologies to determine whether they are employing best practices in their boiler system and protecting critical assets.
  • Justify the importance of well-designed and operated pre-treatment systems upstream of their boiler plant to increase overall plant reliability and lower operating costs.
  • Interpret industry-wide guidelines and monitor key performance indicators inpre-boiler, boiler and post-boiler systems.
  • Determine boiler cycles of concentration and improve chemical management
  • Recognize ways to troubleshoot boiler feed water, boiler and steam purity problems.
  • Identify invaluable insights on how to design for success in new boiler plant projects.
  • The fundamentals types of boilers and their construction.
  • Boiler components and know their specific functions.
  • The fundamentals of boiler operations.
  • Boilers Commissioning, Start-up and shutdown boilers.
  • Boilers Operation at safe and proper pressures and temperatures.
  • Boiler water treatment
  • The major dangers associated with boilers and how to avoid boiler accident and explosions. 
  • The importance of Codes and Standards in Boiler design, construction and operation
  • Boiler Inspectors
  • Steam Plant Operators
  • Maintenance Engineers / Managers
  • Operation Managers
  • Safety Officers
  • Environmental Officers
