WARE Boiler University is a hands-on safety training aimed at eliminating potentially hazardous situations for boiler industry employees. WKU Continuing Education is partnering with WARE, an industry leader in boiler and chiller sales, rental and service, to bring the training to area boiler industries.
WKU Continuing Education Director Sharon Woodward said the program is a great opportunity for local businesses to receive professional training for their employees at an affordable cost. “By bringing Boiler University to Bowling Green, area industries can provide this essential training for their employees without the high cost of travel,” Woodward said.
The goal of the program is to reduce boiler industry accidents by providing employees with detailed understanding of boiler functions, maintenance and repair, as well as accurate planning and purchasing. Students completing the 3-day course receive 2.4 continuing education units from WKU. Seasoned boiler industry professionals lead the course, providing information on safety, efficiency operations, maintenance, cost reduction, boiler inspections, feedwater chemistry and more.
“Inaccurate work with boiler and pressure vessels can result in devastating accidents,” said Woodward. “This course can not only increase efficiency and save money, but it can also save lives.” The course is recommended for all employees involved in the operation, maintenance, planning or purchasing of boilers or boiler-related equipment.
WARE Boiler University course takes place from 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. March 29-31 at the Knicely Conference Center at WKU’s South Campus in Bowling Green. Continental breakfast and lunch are provided.
The registration and fees are due March 11. Fees are $1,200 per person. For information on the WARE Boiler University, visit the Continuing Education website at www.wku.edu/ce/ware or call (270) 745-1912.
