GTE5AI (Applied Industrial) – Introduction to the Gas Turbine Engine and its Associated Systems (5 days)
This ‘Introduction to the Gas Turbine Engine and its Associated Systems’ 5 day program (GTE5) has been designed to address the knowledge component, problem solving ability and practical competence of individuals who have sound experience of Gas Turbine technology and equipment. The content does assume that the prospective recipient has attained an acceptable level of qualification and subsequent appropriate competency.
The program is pitched at a level 3/4 format. That is, the average level of understanding and skill should be conducive with several years’ experience as a qualified Technician (level 3) or that of a newly qualified or less experienced Engineer or Graduate (level 4).
Additionally, other Engineers, Managers/Executives and Support Staff could benefit from this program as a means of an informative introduction and complementary overview to Gas Turbine Technology.
To appreciate how theoretical principles are met through varying design and construction techniques and how these affect operating parameters across differing types of Gas Turbine Engine and how this theory can be applied through practical problem solving to overcome common problems encountered with this type of equipment.
In terms of gas turbine engine knowledge, maintenance and management – at the conclusion of this 5 day program, candidates should be able to:
Successful completion of a GTE 3 day program or extensive post-qualification first- hand experience in a gas turbine engine maintenance or operating environment.
This course is of 5 days in duration.
A maximum of 6 candidates is recommended.
A PowerPoint Presentation, course notes, hand-outs, portable visual aids, electronic images, problem solving exercises and all assessment material supplied.
Assessment is conducted using a number of different methods. All methods are designed to be non-threatening and accurately measure understanding which in turn assists with knowledge retention. These methods are commonly used:
A full report detailing an analytical performance profile is produced for each candidate.
