If you’re a frequent reader of this blog, you’ll have no doubt realised by now that I am – like many of my colleagues – passionate about the positive impact clean steam can make in the food and beverage sector.
Simply fill out a few details below and the 2021 Training Courses Brochure will be emailed to your inbox.
I know that pursuing specialist training can be a time-consuming process, so it’s important that you know that the courses you’re undertaking are brought to you by field-experts, with years of industry experience in steam systems behind them – after all, when you invest the time, you want to receive the very best in training.
The fact that you’re reading this suggests that, just like us, you have an interest in steam. The difference is: your level of familiarity with steam might not be as extensive as you’d like it to be – particularly if you’re responsible for plant maintenance or repair. Thankfully, help is at hand.
Mike Maslanka and Tom Suwart are both steam systems experts and trainers at Spirax Sarco's UK Steam Technology Centre (UKSTC) in Cheltenham. They decided to undertake the Boiler Operation Accreditation Scheme (BOAS) Operator Award, here they tell us what it was like preparing and taking one of the toughest courses in the industry.
