Program Content. Training should be provided in steps that are geared
to operators' capabilities. Weekly sessions, with handouts, periodic reviews, and testing
should be planned to assess trainees' retention and understanding of material and
effectiveness of teaching methods. Assistance in establishing a training program should
be obtained from the regional Engineering Field Division (EFD) before going to other
sources. In addition, a videotaped training course, Power Principles, is available. The
course contains 80 tapes on various subjects related to power plant operations, and
includes student texts and instructor guides. Four 1-hour videotapes address basic
water chemistry, and four 1-hour tapes address water treatment equipment. Each tape
is divided into six 10-minute sections. The tapes cover:
Basic water chemistry.
Water chemistry fundamentals.
Elementary water treatment.
Water chemistry applications.
Water treatment equipment.
Boiler water treatment.
Raw water treatment.
Cooling water treatment.
Your geographical EFD can provide additional information about this program.
Equipment and Procedures. Chapter 7 contains a description of water
quality instrumentation and treatment equipment for various applications. Paragraph 7-3
describes procedures. The subject is also covered in Appendix E.
