Boiler Basics, Operation and Maintenance

COURSE NO: M08-009
Boiler Basics, Operation and Maintenance
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides information on steam generation, types of boilers pertinent to engineering operations, and the various fittings and components commonly found on boilers.


The boiler is an enclosed vessel in which water is heated and circulated, either as hot water or steam, to produce a source for either heat or power. A central heating plant may have one or more boilers that use gas, oil, or coal as fuel. The steam generated is used to heat buildings, provide hot water, and provide steam for cleaning, sterilizing, cooking, and laundering operations. Small package boilers also provide steam and hot water for small buildings.


A boiler must also meet certain requirements before it is considered satisfactory for operation. The boiler must be safe and economical to operate, and it must be able to generate steam at the desired rate and pressure.


This 8 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers and professionals who are interested in learning more about the operation, maintenance, and repair of boilers used in various engineering applications.
