Training of combustion turbine combined cycle and simple cycle power plant personnel has for the most part been shown to be lacking for the following: 1.) Personnel attending EPC/OEM training have not received sufficient preliminary training to be able to fully utilize the higher-level unit specifics. 2.) The training does not address the unit specific job tasks. 3.) Training objectives do not relate to the unit specific job tasks. 4.) The unit specific training (OJT) is left up to the “Start-up” engineers who are deeply involved commissioning of the plant equipment. Therefore training of the operator ends up mostly consisting of learning by osmosis. Independent Third Party Certification or licensing of combined cycle power plant personnel forces the training to be upgraded to include unit specific job tasks and OJT documentation.
