Power Plant Operator
Short Description: Our power plant operator training prepares students for rewarding careers in the field of power plant operations. As a certified power plant operator, you will enter the workforce in an entry-level position with the potential to move up within the industry. A large percentage of the industry’s workforce is currently retiring or entering retirement age, and demand for qualified entry-level power plant operators is high.
Our user-friendly, online certification program is designed for people who have little knowledge of the industry, and knowledge of math, physics, and chemistry is not required. The necessary concepts are covered over the course of your training.
Power plant operators are tasked with making sure processes and systems function properly.
Personnel safety and ensuring that production processes are operating safely are primary concerns of the power plant operator, as are monitoring of instrumentation and operation of equipment. Power plant operators routinely make adjustments to ensure that system process variables remain within acceptable ranges.
Operators have the skills and experience needed to detect potential and actual problems, and to take corrective measures to prevent the interruption of plant operations.
