Power Engineering Online Tutorial

3rd class powering engineering is the next step in power engineering, and currently is in high industry demand.

Most refineries, upgraders and plants that have more than 15,000 kw steam generation require 3rd class power engineers to operate their equipment.

Lakeland Advantages

  • The instructor will host an in-class session.  All students are welcome.  The instructor will make himself available to any student who requires additional assistance/guidance.
