Overcoming the Toughest Training Challenges in Plant Operations

Modern power plants demand the latest technological advancements to minimize downtime and ensure operators receive training in the latest techniques while balancing costs and quality. With experienced operators retiring and a shortage of new talent, plants must bridge the skills gap and provide ongoing training to ensure procedural consistency and regulatory compliance. Fortunately, FCS can incorporate power plant simulator training options into current curriculums to help plants efficiently address these challenges.
