Process steam training seminar from TLV achieves Level 3 BTEC Advanced Award

Training session at TLV's European headquarters in Waibstadt, Germany
A steam training seminar from TLV Euro Engineering covering the efficient use of process steam has achieved a Level 3 BTEC Advanced Award, offering a nationally recognized qualification to those following the syllabus.
Commenting for TLV, general manager Michael Povey says: “The objective of the training seminar is to develop the knowledge of people employed in the steam industry whose job it is to increase steam efficiency, reduce maintenance costs and/or improve the design and performance of steam systems.”
The three-day seminar is followed by a multiple-choice examination, a written paper and an observation-based test to gain certification.
The seminars are held at TLV’s European headquarters in Germany.
One of the first trainees on the new course, Clarke Energy’s Danny Taylor, explains that even before it became BTEC-approved, the course was highly recommended within the industry. “I had received excellent feedback from colleagues that had attended the original course and therefore asked my employer to book my place. TLV’s tutors, coursework and practical and written tests are well prepared, but the real highlight was to achieve the BTEC qualification.”
He goes onto say the course really expanded his knowledge of steam- and condensate-related services and equipment, including sizing steam mains, pressure reducing valves and the appropriate use of steam traps in different applications.
