Boiler Training

Accredited Boiler Training

O'Brien Boiler Services has produced a program to prepare students for assessment for the national accreditation in intermediate, advanced and steam turbine certificates.  The training is normally conducted at our head office or alternatively can be conducted at your companies workplace. Assessment for the certificate of competency will take place at the end of training. Training typically takes five days and is designed for Australia wide recognition.   We are currently operating courses in Victoria and Western Australia.

After completing the program, participants should be able to:

  • Operate a boiler safely
  • identify the hazards related to the operation of basic and intermediate boilers
  • apply a hierarchical analysis approach to risk management
  • analyse workplace situations in times of an emergency and take appropriate action to reduce the possibility of injury to themselves,   other employees and members of the public
  • identify the various management systems associated with the major boiler types.


The program is designed to meet the requirements of the national assessment instruments.  These are: 

  • To develop an understanding of occupational health and safety requirements for the operation of basic and intermediate boilers. 
  • To provide an appreciation of the hazard management approach to occupational health and safety issues. 
  • To gain an understanding of the operation of the two major types of boilers used by industry today as well as their major fittings. 


Participants are not required to perform complex calculations or write lengthy essays, but must be at least 18 years old and able to communicate effectively in the English language.

Unattended Boiler Training

O'Brien Boiler Services has produced a program to provide students with sound knowledge and skills to safely operate an Unattended Boiler.  Our courses typically take 1-2 days depending on the client's skill set and requirements.  We find a single day course is best suited to technically originated people with a sound understanding of units of pressure, temperature and chemical terminology.  The two day course is best suited for individuals with a limited technical knowledge and is intended to give students the ability to safely operate the boiler and meet AS2593-2004 requirements.  Training can be provided on site and each student is provided with a set of course notes and a Certificate of Attendance on completion.
