Gaseous & Diesel Fuel Systems 101

Course Description
Primarily a hands-on lab experience, this class is designed as a “short, sweet and to the point” dive into the basic principles, operation, and service in regard to the fuel systems employed by most common standby generators.

We’ve set this up to take an entry level technician and get them familiar with system identification, proper service, and basic maintenance as a solid baseline to work off of. We will specifically cover propane, natural gas and diesel powered gensets – if you have interest in other fuel systems, we suggest receiving specific training from those manufacturers.

This is a 16-hour, 2-day, 8-hour per day course
Taught in English
Class is limited to 10 students
