N.A.P.E. engineering courses teach students what they need to know to be safe and competent in a boiler room as well as any setting involving the consumption of steam. They are tailored for students to successfully acquire a 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade Stationary Engineering license when testing with the City of Omaha.
The City of Omaha Stationary Engineer licensing tests are viewed as among the toughest in the country. They cover all aspects of boiler room operations and especially personal safety. Therefore our courses highlight:
- Boiler construction
- The dynamics of steam systems
- Hydronic systems
- Water treatment
- Proper boiler operation, cleaning and diagnosing common problems
- All boiler room and steam related equipment and devices found in any facility
- Boiler room safety
- Basic refrigeration
- Some basic electricity and generators
- E.P.A., O.S.H.A., N.F.P.A. and U.S.T. regulations that impact the students job and their facility.
The City requires provable job experience with operating boilers and related equipment before you can test for your operating license. To test with the City of Omaha for a 3rd grade operating license you are required to have 1 year of experience before testing, to test for a 2rd grade operating license you are required to have 3 years of experience before testing and to test for a 1st grade operating license you are required to have 5 years of experience before testing.
We have had people take our classes with no intention of testing with the City but to gain the knowledge that comes from digging into the textbooks and being able to have their questions answered in relative detail.
N.A.P.E. courses are highly recommended by our past students. The information taught is up to date and accurate. The instructors are in the business they teach and are mentored by the best in Omaha through our membership.
