    The role of the natural gas plant operator is to operate and monitor the systems and equipment that take gas from its natural state, and convert it into a usable product for consumers and businesses. Gas plant operators ensure that the end-product gas is free of impurities, then distilled into ethane, propane, butane, and methane. As a certified gas plant operator, you’ll also be charged with controlling the flow of processed gas into pipelines which transport it to the various businesses and residences where it is used for fuel. A crucial part of your responsibilities will be ensuring that the flow-rate is adjusted to the proper level so that the supply keeps pace with customer demands.

    The availability of clean, renewable power is without question going to be the defining challenge and goal of the 21st century, and wind will lead the way. Wind power can realistically not only replace the lion’s share of oil, coal, and natural gas fired electrical plants in the U.S., but also can add enough extra power capacity to allow for most of the cars in the nation to run on electricity. This Wind Energy Professional course is designed specifically with technicians in mind! Our course covers all aspects of installing and troubleshooting wind turbines, giving technicians the knowledge they need to handle even complex maintenance tasks. This course explains how wind turbine blades harvest wind energy, and how generators convert shaft turning energy into electricity.
