  • In this fast-paced, digitized world, there is too often a rush to cram operator training programs on new systems or equipment into a one-time event. Operator training typically is conducted somewhere between installation and startup of a new piece of equipment or system without necessarily considering the long-term or programmatic need for retraining and refining that training over time.

    Many utilities already do a fair job at the initial training efforts that may include:

    Training by vendors

  • Proprietary or equipment-specific operations and maintenance manuals
  • Outside expert training at startup.
