What’s this area about?
The processes and the systems used in these power plants are complex and diverse. Some employees work their entire career in one small section of the process, never seeing, much less understanding, the importance and impact of how problems in one area affect another, or how a small variance from specifications causes huge dollar losses for the corporation. Many employers recognize the benefit of employing knowledgeable workers who understand the full spectrum of the plant. It is a fact that managers and executives also make better decisions when the big picture is understood from a technical perspective.
We are the exclusive provider and developer of this one-of-a-kind Certificate program that can be taken one module at a time. It is a highly respected program developed in cooperation with Georgia Pacific, and now widely used by large organizations like Nippon Paper as well.
