We are able to send our expert steam turbine trainers to your site (or hotel, conference centre etc. if more convenient) in order to do the training. When on-site, our trainer can deliver a mix between practical hands-on training and classroom based learning. We will focus the training around your specific steam turbines. Typically in this situation we will cover topics in a classroom setting first, before giving the trainees the chance to practice (most of) what they have learned in controlled practical sessions.
There are other advantages of booking a steam turbine course at your site. Our trainer will take the opportunity while at your site to perform a visual (non-intrusive) inspection of your turbine(s) and will from this generate a report which we will share with you. These reports can be very valuable as they will detail any potential issues or anomalies which have been identified, along with the recommendations and corrective actions required to address these and ensure optimal lifespan and reduce downtime.
Howden site based training
Away from the distractions of their own site, we also enjoy the chance to welcome delegates to many of our Howden sites, but particularly to our state of the art facilities in Peterborough, UK and Frankenthal, Germany. At these locations, participants will get to see Steam Turbines being manufactured and tested, which in turn can give delegates unique insights into their own equipment.
With access to dedicated training rooms that have been set up to optimise the learning experience, participants will benefit from a dedicated environment. They will also have access to components and parts that would be impossible to give them access to at their own site (unless your machine were having a major overhaul).
We will take care of food and drinks for the duration of the training days, and delegates will also be able to view the ongoing daily operations of our Steam Turbine factory, as well as have the chance to speak to some of our other Howden staff onsite.
A completely different style of training is also available via our distance learning solution. These shorter more flexible courses are delivered via the internet and include an electronic training guide to ensure that everyone is able to follow along easily.
These online courses have proved very popular especially during lockdowns and as short notice solutions for staff who need to get up to speed on a machine quickly. Less disruptive than traditional face-to-face courses, the participants will still benefit from all the advantages of a course run by one of our expert Steam Turbine trainers.
