No matter how well designed or expensive your treatment system may be, it is the operators who will (or will not) make it run at its best.
Well-trained operators maximize the likelihood of efficient system performance and minimize the occurrence of problems that require costly repair work.
Proper operator training is an investment that always pays for itself in the long run, especially when the training class is developed specifically for your unique treatment system and your staff.
McKinnon Engineering’s water and wastewater training classes are tailored to address your specific facility production processes, treatment systems, and requirements.
A typical class agenda include topics such as:
- Water and wastewater chemistry fundamentals
- Safety issues in your water and wastewater treatment plant
- Process histories
- Treatment process fundamentals
- Process controls for best treatment in your facility
- Chemical preparation, handling and dosing
- Monitoring and testing
- Lab procedures and microscopic exams
- Data handling
- Visual and physical monitoring
- Troubleshooting and problem solving
We customize the content of each topic to address your specific circumstances so operators are able to apply the knowledge they gain immediately and with confidence.
John McKinnon’s Training Approach
So that your operators receive instruction specific to your company’s unique equipment and processes, Mr. McKinnon will visit your facility prior to teaching and tailor his materials to address your company’s unique water treatment processes and wastewater characteristics. In addition to addressing topics related to your company’s specific needs, Mr. McKinnon’s class reinforces many of the fundamental principles of the treatment process.
Mr. McKinnon enhances his verbal instruction with visual materials and on-site demonstrations. He presents to operators on site, so your facility is easily accessible and no employee travel is required. Additionally, Mr. McKinnon provides electronic copies of all materials for your future use and reference.
