Objective

This generator training course provides a comprehensive overview of the emergency standby generator. The codes and standards for inspection, testing and maintenance are reviewed. It will also focus on familiarization of the generator range. Participants will learn to identify and understand the functions of the key components of the generating set. This will be structured into specific areas – the Engine, Alternator, Control System and Cooling Package. The course will also be a good refresher to personnel who have not attended a course for some time.
