Mark VIe Engineer & Technician Training

Course Objective

Building upon the fundamentals learned in the Operator course, the Technician course is designed for Technicians and Supervisors involved in the maintenance, configuration and calibration of the subject Turbine Control Panel (TCP). One of the fundamental objectives of the course is to teach the basic knowledge to identify and determine the cause of process and diagnostic alarms in the TCP, and their relationship with the hardware. During the course, we will also discuss gas turbine fundamentals, introduction to: gas turbine protection, TCP hardware, device calibrations from the TCP, etc.
The course provides the fundamental tools to troubleshoot, configure and intervene the TCP, and an introduction to theoretical aspects to further the self-learning process.

For courses delivered at our Hawthorne, NY Training Center, we utilize our energized Mark VIe panel and our custom built simulator. For Customer Site training, we utilize only our simulator.
