A special thanks to SwRI for allowing IGTI to use their facilities for this training week. ASME International Gas Turbine Institute Training Week Don’t miss this unique opportunity for career advancement by attending one or multiple courses being offered at one location! Introduction to Gas Turbines and Centrifugal Compressors Monday and Tuesday, March 23-24, 2009 8:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Southwest Research Institute San Antonio, TX Overview: This two day class is a unique opportunity to join the experts to learn what you need to know to apply and operate gas turbines and gas compressors in your operation as well as to interact and network with your peers in the field of turbomachinery applications. In addition to the theoretical presentations, real life case studies will be presented by the instructors in an interactive forum which will further enhance the students’ skills in troubleshooting gas turbine and gas compressors issues. Acquiring and perfecting these skills will enable them to go back to the workplace and perform their job with a much higher level of performance and accuracy. There will also be an opportunity for hands-on learning using Southwest Research Institute’s gas turbines and compressors. After successfully completing this course, you should be able to: Understand the functioning of compressors, gas turbines, and their industrial applications.
