A new offering from the Byworth Training Team

City and Guilds Assured Training

We are pleased to confirm that from mid 2022 Byworth Boilers will be offering a Safe Operation and Management of Industrial Steam Boilers training programme Assured by City & Guilds

Incorporating both practical and classroom-based learning, this new and exciting approach to boiler training ensures you will have the opportunity to engage with the trainer, the equipment, and the learning process.

This course is designed to give candidates a thorough understanding of the boiler house and industrial boiler operation and management, giving operators the knowledge required to confidently operate their own equipment safely and efficiently.

At the end of each section of learning there will be a short online test or practical assessment. Assessing the course in this way reduces the stress and anxiety that can be caused by an end point assessment and allows candidates to focus on the key learning points from each module. The practical elements of the course will be assessed by industry professionals with many years of experience working within the boiler house environment. The 12 teaching modules are logically arranged to cover the boiler system from cold water supply, through control, and ending with the basics of boiler management. The key learning points for the course are detailed below.

  • Understand legal responsibilities relating to steam systems
  • The ability to interpret, test & manage water treatment
  • Read & interpret combustion results, recognising good combustion
  • Diagnose & fix common water level issues
  • Calibration, testing & setting of blowdown systems
